Whenever folks are looking for something online, they take it for granted that their cyber environment is safe. However, your web searches can always be monitored by third parties, and this is where Incognito Searches comes forth. This browser extension says that it will protect your computer and your system from unwanted monitoring. And it would be all swell if it were not for one tiny detail: Incognito Searches is a potentially unwanted program as well. So rather than trusting this application, you have to remove Incognito Searches from your system. And you have opened the right page if you want to achieve that.

Of course, this browser extension is not a malicious infection because users download and add it willingly. Even if you were not aware of that, you added this program to your computer yourself. It probably happened when you downloaded some freeware application from a file-sharing website. This happens very often because users do not fully grasp the risks of downloading programs from third-party sources. It is always possible to avoid Incognito Searches and other similar applications if only you paid more attention to the installation wizard. It should be possible to deselect the unwanted programs during the installation. But of course, if you go through the process automatically, you will miss that chance.

What will happen when this program gets added to your browser? Well, for starters, Incognito Searches will only affect the Chrome browser, so if you use other browsers, this extension will not affect you directly. Nevertheless, there might be other programs that enter your system together with this extension, and they might as well be added to the other browsers, too. So if you want to see just how many unwanted applications entered your system, you should scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner.

The official homepage for this extension via install.incognitosearches.com says that the extension can help you protect your privacy when you search the web. It says that with this program you can protect your sensitive private data, and you no longer need to worry about your “search history being saved.” While this may sound quite nice, let us not forget that the extension can also collect information on your web browsing habits. So it is a double-edged sword. Perhaps Incognito Searches stops other third parties from collecting data on you, but it gathers information itself, and then shares it with its partners.

The problem is that there is no way to know where this information goes, and how it impacts your web browsing later on. It is very likely that Incognito Searches is responsible for increasing a number of commercial ads you see when you browse the web. Some of those ads could be embedded with outgoing links that could lead you to malicious websites. And just like that, indirectly, Incognito Searches could expose you to malicious infections that would eventually take over your system.

So do yourself a favor and remove Incognito Searches today. Deleting a browser extension is not complicated, but if you have doubts, you can always rely on a legitimate antispyware program.
