Why does Chrome in incognito mode keep all cookies after closing the browser?
To reproduce this, do the following.
- Delete all your cookies and close the browser
- Open new incognito window (close "normal" window in case it is opened)
- Visit some website like twitter.com
- Close browser
Now I would expect all cookies to be deleted while I was browsing in incognito mode, but that is not what happens. Chrome keeps all cookies even if I have visited that website only in incognito mode.
5) Open Chrome, go to Settings -> Advanced settings -> Privacy (Content settings) -> All cookies and site data
And Twitter's cookies are still there although it shouldn't be.
If I set cookies settings to "Keep local data only until I quit my browser" Chrome deletes Cookies, but shouldn't Chrome delete cookies by default in incognito mode without me having to do that? After all, what is the point of incognito mode if it keeps all cookies?
Why is this happening?
