By default, Google Chrome does not run extensions (extensions) in Incognito mode. The reason is simple: These add-ons can invade a user’s privacy. However, if you want to, you can still grant permission for an extension to work in private Chrome browsing, by following the simple steps below:

First, open the “Chrome” browser. Click the “Add-ons” icon in the toolbar, which looks like a puzzle piece. When the add-ons menu pops up, select “Manage add-ons”.

Warning: Extensions you enable in incognito mode may record your browsing history or other private details, and be able to share that data with third parties. They will work just like they would in standard browsing mode. Make sure you trust the extension completely before granting it access to your private browser.

Repeat the same steps for extensions that you allow to operate in incognito mode.

Once done, close the “Extensions” tab and the settings you just made will take effect immediately. You can now fully use your enabled extensions in incognito mode.
