If you’re looking to enjoy a more secure and private browsing experience, using Incognito Mode should be your go-to choice. Your browsing history, cookies, information, and other related data that you enter in the forms wouldn’t be saved. Aside from that, Google has also put in another restrictive measure – this mode will stop you from taking screenshots in Chrome Incognito Mode.

While it makes total sense from the security point of view, there can be many instances where you may want to note down an important piece of information or save something for later use. During such moments, taking a screenshot will be the fastest and easiest way to get the job done.

Fortunately, Google knows this and has included an option to take screenshots in Chrome Incognito Mode. Without further ado, this guide will tell you how you can easily capture screenshots in the incognito mode of Google Chrome.
