Uh Oh, Chrome's Incognito Mode Is Broken on iOS 7

By Eric Limer on at

Better be careful what you search for on your iPhone. Chrome's incognito mode on iOS 7 is leaky, and your embarrassing searches might not be as safe as you thought.

The bug was discovered by Tom Faller at Parall.ax and it's pretty straight forward. If you search for something in incognito mode—say, for big sexy farts—that query will show up in autocomplete if you later navigate to Google.com.

Your phone probably isn't the family computer, so this isn't the biggest deal in the world, but it could still wind up being pretty embarrassing the next time your child or significant other reaches for it. So until this gets fixed, remember to search for porno christmas gifts in incognito mode somewhere that isn't your phone. [Parall.ax]
