How to Enable or Disable Extensions in Incognito Mode in Google Chrome


You can customize Google Chrome and add features and functionality by adding extensions from the Chrome Web Store.

If you donít want Google Chrome to remember your activity, you can browse the web privately in Incognito mode.

Allow in incognito is turned off (disabled) by default for extensions.

This tutorial will show you how to enable and disable allow in incognito mode for extensions in Google Chrome for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

If an extension has been turned off, it will not be available in incognito mode (even if you have turned on (enable) allow in incognito) until the extension is turned on.
