Google is giving Chrome’s Incognito mode a clearer heads-up! The update aims to let users know that both Google and other websites can still nab their data, even in this semi-private surfing setting.

Google is making changes to Chrome’s Incognito mode warning in response to a privacy lawsuit. The update addresses a complaint that the previous warning didn’t clearly inform users that Google might still collect data during private browsing. The new warning is being tested in Chrome Canary.

Here’s the current text on Chrome’s Incognito Mode:

Incognito 1

For those not in the know, Incognito mode doesn’t lock away your tracks completely. As stated, your browsing activity could remain visible to “Websites you visit,” “Your employer or school,” and “Your internet service provider.” This clearer warning could be the guide some users need!
