You can open a new Incognito window by

  • Using the keyboard shortcut Command-Shift-N

  • From the Command Bar (Command-T) by typing “New Incognito Window”

  • By going to File > New Incognito Window in the Mac Menu Bar.

What happens when you browse in an Incognito window

  • Your Spaces, Pinned Tabs and Favorite Tabs are not available in an Incognito window. You cannot create Incognito window Spaces, Pinned Tabs or Favorited Tabs.

  • You cannot access your Archive or Boosts from the Incognito window Library, however you can access Media, Downloads, Easels and Notes.

  • Incognito sessions don't retain browsing history, cookies and site data, or information entered in forms.

  • Improved search suggestions are turned off

  • While in Incognito, sites can't use your cookies to see your browsing activity across different sites, for example, to personalize ads. Features on some sites may not work.

  • You can enable extensions in Incognito by navigating to arc://extensions, clicking 'Details' for the extension and toggling on 'Allow in Incognito'.
