The Chrome extensions are quite useful tools that can enhance the features of the Google Chrome browser. We have mentioned few Google Chrome extensions in our articles previously that can simply turn your Google Chrome browser into a superpower that you can perform almost anything inside Browser.

Deadly the Google Chrome extensions do not work in the Incognito mode by default and there is a reason behind it.

So why don’t the extensions not work in Incognito mode?


The Incognito mode actually means that your browsing activity is not being tracked because Google is not tracking or saving cookies to the browser, this is why you will find yourself logged out in almost all the accounts for which you have already logged in when you browse through Google Chrome.

And the fact that Google Chrome extensions can record your browsing history, it would mean that they would be able to collect your browsing data from the Incognito mode.

While it shouldn’t bother us, Google still wants to play it safe and has disabled it by default and the good news is that you can enable it.

So, how to enable Chrome extensions for Incognito mode

Enabling the Google Chrome extensions for Incognito mode is pretty simple, you can head over to the extensions section by clicking on the vertical three dots on the top right-hand side and then clicking on More tools, to find the Extension.

Once the list of extensions opens, click on the details button of the particular extension you want to work in incognito mode.

After clicking the details button the details for the particular Chrome extension would appear and one of the options would be to allow it in incognito mode.

Google would also mention the warning that Google Chrome cannot prevent extensions from recording your browsing history.

If you are really bothered about the Chrome extension recording your browsing history, you can only enable it for a while and then disable it using the same toggle button that you used for enabling it.

Another cool thing is that you can assign keyboard shortcuts to the extensions to enhance your productivity, check out this article to know how you can do it.
