How to Turn Off Incognito Mode on iPhone?

Incognito mode allows you to use a web browser more safely, as it does not save cookies or your browsing history. But you need to turn the incognito mode off to use previously saved cookies or access your history.

However, closing your web browser on your iPhone does not instantly close all the incognito tabs or turn off the incognito mode.

Some browsers on Android automatically close the incognito mode after you close the browser and stop it from running in the background.

You need to do so manually for iPhones. Fortunately, we’ve mentioned easy-to-follow steps in this article to turn off incognito mode for different web browsers on iPhones.
