the first thing that bad apps (at least some) do is syphon out data 
right when u open them.
if u need to go to setting to turn the "incognito" option on, there is a 
risk the damage is already done by the time u get to the settings.
I may exaggerate a little of course... but that suggests an installation 
screen with "set default incoginito yes/no" prompt could be of use...
it might degrade usability (an extra screen to interact with), user may 
default to the OK button (so incognito maybe should be default).
On starting the app from grid, maybe a toast informing the "incognito" 
status may also be useful...

well, just thoughts...
