Animorphs is a book series by K. A. Applegate featuring several kids who have a special power: they can morph into any animal they want. However, if they stay morphed for over two hours, they will get stuck in that form until they die. Randall pokes fun at this by relating it to incognito mode in a browser (which is used for browsing the internet without storing cookies or browsing information) saying that if you use incognito mode for more than two hours, you get trapped using it forever, which may not be a bad thing.
It is unknown how hypothetically being trapped in incognito mode would extend to real life, perhaps making people unable to identify you and your interactions leaving no memories after you went away.
