INCOGNITO MODE 

 

Many  times when you want to browse in safe ans secure mode i.e nobody can steal your info regarding surfing content or passwords etc , Google Chrome offers the incognito browsing mode. Here’s how the incognito mode works:

1> Webpages that you open and files downloaded while you are incognito aren’t recorded in your browsing and download histories.

2> All new cookies and caches were  deleted after you close all incognito window tabs which you were surfing or browsing on that you’ve opened.

3> Changes made to your Google Chrome bookmarks and general settings while in incognito mode are always saved.

So, there are ways or you can call it a trick by which you can get to know about the history of content being searched 

 

1>  By mean of Flash cookies

Flash cookies if your Chromium and Flash were older  versions that do not obey privacy mode policies and privacy measures. To view the Flash cookies on a Windows computer, open a window and copy this into the folder address:

%APPDATA%\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\ ,

then open the 8-digit randomly named folder inside that window . Inside you should see the domain names of sites that are storing Flash cookies (assuming Chromium does not delete Flash cookies in incognito mode)

 

2> Using Command Line Of Windows

 

NOTE:  Before doing this ,If you have Windows XP, download Powershell 2.0 Here (Microsoft) first .

When you enter on a website that you want to search or to browse, you first type  the name of the site you want to visit on a browser. To contact that website, the computer firstly needs to find the specified IP associated with the website name; to do this, it uses a DNS (Domain Name System )server.

As you can see that this  process is very straightforward to use. As it’s not mendatory to get this IP address every time,  So windows uses a program (a DNS client) to store this information.

To test everything firstly we are going to clear entries in the DNS client:

Press WinKey + R, type cmd and press Enter to open a command line.

In the command line type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter:

Now  open a Chrome window and go to xyz.com using Incognito mode. This is the private mode of Google Chrome as described above in this post. To open a window in this mode press Ctrl + Shift + N.

You were surprised to see  what happens if we close this window and check the DNS cache using ipconfig /displaydns?:

As we can see Chrome doesn’t remove this information regarding history of visited websites from the DNS cache.

    I’m trying to use this on my husbands windows 8 Asus computer. But when I type in “ipconfig /displaydns” it says “windows IP configuration could not display the DNS resolved Cache.” Could someone please help me?

    Spoken like a true chauvinist. (Clearly Siman is part of a loving, trust-filled marriage.) First of all, after two people are married, everything belongs to both spouses; hence, equitable division divorces. So she actually has every right to go through that computer, since technically ownership belongs to them both equally. What really annoys me about your idiotic statement, however, is that 99% of the time, if a woman feels the need to go through her husband’s browsing history, it has nothing to do with her being a stalker-it has to do with her husband being untrustworthy and/or unfaithful.

    I agree with Alex, if she cant trust her husband to tell her the truth about something serious then i believe it is appropriate. But if she’s doing it because she thinks that he’s watching porn or something, then that’s her own damn fault and needs to learn to please her man and not go stalker because she doesn’t APPROVE!
