What is Feed.incognitosearches.com?

If you notice the URL of Feed.incognitosearches.com in your address bar flash before you are redirected to search.yahoo.com (Yahoo Search), it is most likely that Incognito Searches is installed on your Google Chrome browser. This extension might be introduced to you as a tool that can keep your searches anonymous, but it looks like it was created for the purpose of spying on users and redirecting them to a third-party search engine. The strangest thing about this potentially unwanted program (PUP) is that its services are useless. The only thing it can do is open the “incognito” window, but you do not need any add-on or program for that because “incognito” is a feature that you already have if you use Google Chrome. You do not need to install anything to browse the web without leaving any traces behind. All you need to do is open Google Chrome, tap Alt+F, and select “New incognito window.” You can also tap keys Ctrl+Shift+N to access incognito mode. Needless to say, that is a good reason to remove Incognito Searches, but we recommend getting rid of it because you want to delete Feed.incognitosearches.com.
