Can anyone tell me what this icon on Chrome in my taskbar is?

It has only appeared today, I think chrome updated this morning but I can't be 100% sure.

enter image description here

It seems as if it's being triggered when I login somewhere (Facebook, Salesforce, etc...) using an incognito tab.

  • check your version of Chrome and check what is current official build to see weather it is updateed or not? – malakrsnaslava Dec 11 '14 at 15:02

That is the icon that's associated with your Google Chrome profile. Chrome - People

You'll see the icon in the taskbar as well.

Yes, it is an update of Google chrome. It is the icon to create Google chrome account, which help to sync your bookmarks, history, etc., across all your devices.
