What is Incognito mode?

Incognito is a mode that keeps your search queries and browsing secret. In Incognito mode, the browser does not save passwords you enter, search queries, or the addresses of visited sites. However, any changes to settings, downloaded files, and created bookmarks are saved.

Attention! Incognito mode does not make you invisible. For example, if you log in on a social network, you will be seen as online. It also will not protect your computer from viruses.

Is Turbo mode turned on in Incognito mode?

By default, Turbo mode turns on automatically if the download speed is less than 128 Kbit/s. When this happens, the Turbo icon appears. When the speed reaches 512 Kbit/s or higher, Turbo mode is deactivated and the icon disappears.
