Privacy not thorough?


Searching for a replacement for Pale Moon for Android, I installed Brave yesterday, went through the settings, and then proceeded to check what Panopticlick says it can find: a lot, it turns out. But there are other posts about that and related subjects, so I moved on to checking the efficacy of the Incognito mode.

Since I used only the Incognito mode so far, I was expecting chrome://site-engagement to be empty but… all the addresses I accessed directly are there!

Same with chrome://cache (even after using ‘Clear browsing data’ with ‘Cached images and files’ checked) except that one contains even more ancillary stuff, of course.

Are these oversights?
