Default to Guest: The new feature of Google Chrome

Google has announced that a new feature, the "Default to Guest mode", is now available to users Windows, Linux and MacOS from the Chrome web browser. The new Google Chrome feature can be activated using a command-line switch or enterprise policy, while allowing users to configure the web browser to always run Guest Mode. In this browser mode, Chrome will delete all browsing activities from the computer after the user exits the browser.

The guest to guest mode (Default to Guest mode) allows others to use your computer to browse or surf the Internet on someone else's device without access to a Chrome profile. The difference between Guest mode and Incognito mode (incognito mode) is that users will be able to access all of their profile information while using it.Incognito chrome mode Default to Guest

While browsing Default to Guest mode, Chrome will not store information about them websites visited by users, including advertisements and the sources used therein, as well as information about the websites to which users link. In addition, it will not store information about the employer, school or anyone else controlling / providing the network that a user is using. Information that will not be stored includes the service provider Internet user and search engines.

  • They right click on the "Chrome" shortcut.
  • They choose properties.
  • At the end of the line "Target:" add the following: chrome.exe -guest
  • When completed, they use the shortcut to launch Chrome.

Windows users can also open the application Command Prompt ή PowerShell (or any other Port program), browse to Google Chrome and launch the browser with the -guest parameter.

For macOS and Linux users should follow this procedure:

  • Exit all Chrome snapshots.
  • Run your favorite Terminal application.
  • At the terminal, users will need to find the Chrome application and add it –Guest as a command line parameter and press ENTER to launch Chrome.
  • To return to their Chrome profile, users will have to close all Chrome snapshots and restart the web browser without the –guest command. Windows users who edited the shortcut should change the "Target:" line to its previous format.
