3. Hush Private Bookmarking

Hush Private Bookmarking

The only secure way to create and access private bookmarks in incognito mode. We’ve always wanted to be able to save webpages while browsing in incognito mode – but bookmarking would defeat its purpose, and emailing links to ourselves just doesn’t cut it.

Hush is an extension we’ve created to solve this problem. It runs only in incognito mode and so doesn’t disrupt everyday browsing, but when you really need to bookmark your surprise party plans, et cetera, you can do so easily from the address bar. The next time you’re in incognito mode, it’s then really easy to bring up pages you’ve bookmarked in the past. You can also easily make multiple sets of bookmarks by choosing a different password for each set.

We’ve placed a heavy emphasis on security. Your bookmarks are encrypted using the highest standards before they’re stored, and they’re only stored on your computer, so any would-be snoopers will never be able to see what you’re actually planning.

    These extensions are fine for Google, but what about those of us that use Google chrome on an Android tablet? Is there an extension or program that’s available that will password-protect bookmarks?
