Google-chrome – Chrome Incognito mode & Gmail Login


If I open Chrome in Ingognito mode & login to a Gmail account & then open a second incognito window how does Gmail automatically log in into the same account?

i.e. What lets Gmail figure what account to log in to if I'm already logging in from an incognito window? Aren't cookies etc blocked?

Best Answer

Incognito mode doesn't store browsing records once you're done, but while it is active it is still a browser with cookies etc. Cookies are stored while you're in incognito mode, but are flushed once you exit, along with your incognito browsing history.
