Though Google Chrome already provides you an option to go incognito if you seek a private browsing session, the new patent awarded to Google aims to make this process completely automatic rather than the present set-up which needs to be enabled manually.
The patent that was filed earlier in 2011, relates to equipping a web browser with the ability to automatically open web pages in a privacy mode based on content of the web pages so that a user is not required to manually activate the privacy mode.
As described in the patent, the incognito mode can either be configured to kick off every time a browser session is started or to open certain websites in the private session.
Furthermore, Google is also gifting some artificial intelligence to its browser, making it capable enough to recognize webpages that seek credit card details or such sensitive information and would automatically switch to incognito mode.
As stated in the patent-
Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to equipping a web browser with the ability to automatically open web pages in a privacy mode based on content of the web pages so that a user is not required to manually activate the privacy mode.
Incorporation of these features into the browser will further enhance its security and privacy, the aspects in much demand these days following the grave cyber attacks witnessed recently.
The users as well as the developer teams have realized the importance of the web security and are restlessly adding up more and more security levels in order to barre hackers and other possible threats. Recently, Mozilla added a Forget button to Firefox that wipes browser data from the last five minutes, two hours or an entire day with a single click.
