How to Always Launch Chrome in Incognito on a Mac

Google Chrome features an "incognito" mode that erases specified Web pages from its browser history and automatically deletes cookies when the incognito window is closed. While opening an incognito window usually requires a keyboard shortcut, some users have figured out how to launch Google Chrome in incognito mode by default.

Step

Open your Applications menu and click "Apple Script Editor."

Step

Click "File," then click "New." A blank window called "Untitled" appears.

Step

Type the following code in the box:

Step

do shell script "open -a Google\ Chrome --new --args -incognito"

Step

Click "Compile," then click "Run." When you launch Google Chrome, it will permanently begin in incognito mode.
