How to take a screenshot in Incognito Mode on Google Chrome [Android]

If you’ve ever tried taking screenshots of webpages opened in incognito mode, then you should see a notification, “Couldn’t save screenshot”. But there’s a workaround by which you can capture screenshots of webpages opened in incognito mode.

Back in 2018, Google removed the support of taking screenshots in incognito mode. The feature was removed from the incognito mode due to the privacy concerns. But the newer Google Chrome 89 has hidden flag stashed inside developer tools that lets people take screenshot in incognito mode. In this article, we will show you how to take screenshot in Incognito Mode on Google Chrome.

Recently, Google added a bunch of new functions to the Chrome including Tab Search, preview webpages, grid view, and a few more. Now the popular web browser is all set to get yet another feature in the form of incognito screenshot. Though, for the time being, users can only enable it from hidden flags. But we can expect, Google could soon re-introduce the incognito screenshot feature in the coming days.

Now let’s take a look at the steps by which you can take screenshot in Incognito mode on Google Chrome in Android.
