What is Anonymous Browsing on Reddit and how does it work?

Anonymous Browsing is a way for you to browse Reddit without Reddit giving you recommendations and notifications. It is like everything is back from scratch and you won’t be bugged by people in chat too.

While you are browsing Reddit anonymously, the awards you’ve won and the communities you’ve joined won’t be visible as you will get a preview of what it is like to be a new member.

Keep in mind your session will expire when you are inactive for thirty minutes. After all, if you are not planning on doing anything else on Reddit then you may as well log out. When your session expires, you will be redirected to the account that you previously used so you can choose to anonymously browse for just a few minutes.
