Data collected in Chrome’s incognito mode will be deleted by Google following court settlement.

Google has announced that it will be deleting billions of browsing data records collected while users were in private browsing “incognito mode” as part of a settlement for a class action lawsuit known as Brown v. Google. The plaintiffs in the lawsuit, who requested $5 billion in compensation for the data collected during Incognito Mode, have expressed satisfaction with this agreement, stating that it signifies true accountability and transparency from the world’s largest data collector.

The settlement also includes changes to how Google reports limits on its private browsing services, as well as for the next five years, users will be able to block third-party cookies by default in incognito mode, preventing Google from tracking them on external sites. This move marks an important step toward improving and defending the right to privacy on the internet. It holds Google accountable for the data it collects and ensures greater transparency in its practices. Users can now feel more confident in their privacy while using Google’s services.
