If your PC has multiple users, using private (incognito) mode has many benefits. Every browser has it and it’s usually quite simple to access it. However, some users were reporting about getting a certain error from certain websites while using Private mode. The Your browser is not supported for private mode prompt or something along those lines.

We heard you out and will try to provide you with an answer as best as we can below.

Why the browser private mode is not supported on some websites?

First, let’s start with explaining what private (incognito) modes actually do. First of all, there’s no caching or loading any previously locally stored data. Browsers, in their standard mode, will keep the cache from the visited websites locally in a JSON file. Not in private mode. This both prevents revisited websites from identifying your activity and the next user from tracking your online activity.

There are also things like log-in details, browsing history (obviously), and cookies that won’t load and are everything you’ve done during that private session is immediately deleted afterward. Just keep in mind that Private mode is made to keep your privacy uncompromised locally (for other users), not online. There are ways that websites or services will track you even in a private mode.


Open blocked sites and avoid geo-restrictions with one of these impeccable browsers. You’ll like the first pick.


How to resolve issues with private mode and third-party websites

So, once we got that out of the table, let’s answer why some websites give you the Your browser is not supported for private mode. All websites have a way to identify the browser that you use to visit them. And some will require for you to disable your ad-block, others will ask to accept cookies, while the minority won’t accept Private mode.

It’s their right to put certain criteria and it’s your right to go with it or just switch to an alternative website. Simple as that. The way to avoid this is quite self-explanatory. Just disable private mode or try using private mode but in an alternative browser. Some websites have issues with Internet Explorer so switching to Chrome, Firefox, or our favorite, UR Browser is maybe a right thing to do.
