It Can't Assure Cent Percent Safety

Google warns us, using incognito will not make us secure from other Internet threats. It cannot protect our data from websites which collect information from our computer by installing malicious codes. Agents who work with ISP can track our Internet activities unless we encrypt the entire communication. Incognito is also helpless against Malicious software products like Trojans or keyloggers if they are already installed on computers. Keylogging tools can track every keystrokes we make on a PC and either store the details or send to its server. Private browsing feature of a browser cannot prevent this activity. However, we can prevent the auto saving of cookies and browsing history on our laptop using incognito feature. Even the the download activities will not be entered to the download log file.
