So over the past few months since I have released Incognito Gone, I have received an overwhelming amount of feedback via email. For all of the positive feedback, I say THANKS! This program has been downloaded over 3,000 times from my personal site, and countless times on other file sharing sites. I was not expecting to receive such a response from the general public. I give kudos to my wife, who was the original brain child behind the idea. I threw this software together as a fun side project, never thinking it would gain any popularity.
However, as it has, I think it’s appropriate to clarify a few things about the software that I have received repeated questions about.
Q: How do I undo or reverse Incognito Gone after I have run it on my computer?
A: The effects of Incognito Gone are permanent. Before you are allowed to run the program on your computer a warning box pops up that you must respond to. It looks as shown below:
As I created this program with the intent to help families that wanted to block harmful websites and pornography, I realized that if there was an “Enable” option provided, it would be too easy for individuals to simply enable private browsing when no one was looking. I do not recommend my program for any individuals who wish to enable and disable the private browsing feature at their leisure. This program is simply for those individuals who wish to be rid of the option.
2) Why doesn’t Incognito Gone work in Mozilla Firefox?
A: After releasing Incognito Gone, Firefox released an update that made my current program unable to disable private browsing.
