What is Guest Mode
Let’s start with the basics. What is guest mode?
Imagine a friend walking up to you and asks if they can use the browser on your computer for a few minutes. You do not want to create a browser profile for a few minutes of use.
It is easier for your friend to use guest mode for their needs. When the close or exit guest mode, their browsing history and related data is deleted automatically.
But wait, you could use Incognito Mode for this right?
Not really. Allow me to explain.
Guest Mode Vs Incognito Mode
Try this. Open an incognito tab and start typing something. Do you see websites you visit and your search history?
Yes, incognito mode does not save your browsing history, but it shows information from your regular browsing profile. Your friend, when they start typing on the addressbar, will see the same information.
Now, try this in guest mode and you will not see anything from your Chrome profile.
Wait, I didn’t show you how to use guest mode, correct? Here is how.
