Default Google Chrome Incognito mode history

Is it possible to view the history in Google chrome if someone has been using it in incognito mode?

Dont think so, and just had a quick look around and it confirmed my thoughts it would appear. If it is an ongoing thing set the router to log, or install a third party monitor.

Would kind of defeat the purpose of porn, i mean incognito mode if it was still stored on the computer.

I believe it still records the history in index.dat.

There's a file in Firefox that keeps track of your zoom levels for sites. Apparently, it saves them even in Privacy mode. I thinks it's Places.sqlite (don't quote me).

Chrome might have a similar flaw?

If this is true where would it be located I looked for it, but was not able to find it.

No idea; I was theorizing. Hence the use of the question mark.

Show system and hidden files and do a search for index.dat. Open it with notepad. It has been a few years since I did this and at that time it was a class exercise but if I remember correctly you should see data from all internet browsers. I believe incognito mode just doesn't save cookies or history in the browser.
