How to Automatically Open Specific Web Search in Chrome’s Incognito.
Incognito Filter is a wonderful Chrome extension that automatically launches incognito mode for filtered websites. It uses url and regular expressions to weed out those websites and searches for incognito mode. For example, I have a habit of opening certain websites like my banking sites, Google News, or rather searches for my articles in incognito mode. However, when I have to switch to incognito mode every time it gets tiresome. This is where the incognito filter comes in. It will automate this task for you. Let’s see how it works.

Automatically jump to incognito for some search words
1. First, we would extend Chrome under the name Incognito-Filter. As the name suggests, it allows you to set filters for websites that you want to open in incognito mode.
It also supports “regular expressions”, also known as RegEx. So, instead of typing the full name of the website, you can even resort to using special characters.
For example, if I want “www.example.com” to open in incognito mode, I can leave the filter as “*: //www.example.*”. This RegEx ensures that even if a website has “http” or “https” or the domain name of the website ends with “.org” or “.edu”, it will still open incognito. So RegEx helps to expand the range of filters.
2. The above example was for a web page. But if you want to run incognito on a specific search term, the regex is pretty tricky. Open the settings page for the Incognito-filter extension.
On the Options page, enter the following regular expression in the text box. Post this, click the Add Regular Expression button. / ^. * b (one | two) b. * $ /
This regular expression triggers incognito mode if your search term contains “one” or “two”. This rule is for any search browser or website to try.
Now let’s deal with regular expression. The symbols “/^.*” and “* $ /” mean that you need to scan the entire search term until you reach the end of the line. It will search for at least one occurrence of our keyword, i.e. one or two.
“/ B” means to search the query for the exact keyword “one” or “two” with the same case. You can modify this particular section “(one | two)” to insert the appropriate keyword for which you want to run incognito. For example, if I want to activate incognito mode when searching for “how to”. Below is how my regex would look like. / ^. * b (how to) b. * $ /
So, with this extension and RegEx, you can set up an automatic launch of incognito based on your search keyword. This is useful if you want to find medical data or news for a specific region. Incognito Mode does not provide personalized search results, nor does it provide a certain level of anonymity with respect to third-party websites.
What’s more, you can run these Chrome extensions on Android. So you can have the same setting on your Android smartphone to automatically launch Chrome Incognito. If you have further problems or questions, let me know in the comments below.
