By default, Google Chrome does not run extensions in Incognito mode as they can potentially compromise your privacy. But if you want to give an extension permission to work in private browsing mode, it’s easy to do. Here’s how.
First open ̵
If you don’t see a puzzle piece button in the menu bar, click the vertical ellipses button (three vertical dots) and select More tools> Extensions from the menu.
When the Extensions tab appears, find the name of the extension you want to enable in Incognito mode and click the “Details” button next to it.
Scroll down on the extension’s detail page and find the ‘Allow in incognito’ option. Click the switch next to it to turn it on.
Warning: Extensions that you enable in Incognito mode may record your browsing history or other private information and may share that information with a third party. They work exactly as they will in the standard browsing mode. Make sure you absolutely trust the extension before giving it access to your private browsing.
To do the same with other extensions, click the Back button once and go to the “Details” page of each extension. Turn on ‘Allow in incognito’ for any extension you want to use in incognito mode.
When done, close the “Extensions” tab and the setting will take effect immediately. You can use the extensions you have enabled in Incognito mode, and they will still be active in non-private browsing mode as well. Have fun browsing!
