How to Open Incognito Mode and New Tabs in Chrome iPhone

Google Chrome for iPhone and iPad allows users to open new tabs by tapping the Plus “+” button in the address bar and switching to the incognito mode by tapping the three-dot menu and selecting “New incognito tab.” This can help you keep your browsing history private and organize your tabs more efficiently.

Start Incognito Mode or Private Window in Chrome browser

I’m sure you also use multiple tabs while surfing the internet. One might use it for youtube and Facebook, among a couple of others to name. The ability to multitask using multiple new tabs in Chrome is a blessing for iPhone users.

Like the new tab and private tab in the Safari browser, Chrome iOS has a new tab and Incognito tab, which function similarly; however, Chrome is optimized for more performance and gives you excellent multitasking capabilities.

And in case you want to open any explicit website, you can always use Incognito mode Chrome iPhone, which is fast, secure, reliable, and leaves no history tracks.

As we discussed earlier, Chrome has two types of new tab options. One for general purpose use, and others when you don’t want to keep any history traces. We will guide both modes and how you can use them efficiently.

Open New Tab

If you want to open Chrome, it will directly go to Google’s web page. It is more than sufficient for most users as people mostly use Google for daily searches.

However, if you have a specific website, which you want to use, then the new Tab feature in Chrome iOS will surely help you out. Follow these steps to open a new browsing tab:

  1. Open the Chrome app on iPhone/iPad.
  2. Tap on the Plus plus add icon icon at the bottom.

You can also click the Tabs icon to open multiple tabs views. You can click the Add button to add new tabs as required.

Start Incognito Mode

Incognito Tab on Chrome iPhone is a helpful tab at the bottom that does not keep track of your history, cookies, login data, etc. You can use it to visit any non-trusted website or any online source you don’t want to record history.

Follow these steps to open Incognito Tab:

  1. Open the Chrome app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on the Tabs icon (at the bottom of your screen).
  3. It will show you the present active tabs. Swipe left-to-right to enter Incognito Mode.

Bottom Line

Incognito or private tabs and new tabs are handy when you browse multiple websites. If you use someone’s phone to open your Facebook or Internet banking account, always use incognito mode, as it never saves any history, password, or cache.

Knowledge of incognito mode Chrome iPhone and new Chrome iOS can help you keep your online identity safe and boost productivity by switching between multiple tabs as required. I frequently use multiple tabs while working on my college research paper or assignment. Chrome iOS gives me the accessibility to browse through multiple tabs swiftly.

Similarly, you can also start incognito mode and new tabs on a Chrome Mac. The feature offered by both computer and mobile incognito mode is the same.
