    This helps with preventing a ban on the system right?

    Would be amazing if this "Incognito" mode could become an option on the Rosalina menu.
    I don't know if that would be possible, but maybe OP should get in contact with luma3DS author?

    Idk just a thought :)

    Maybe a boot manager with an option that allows you to enter Incognito Mode?

    Basically yes as long as you don't go to the Activity Log app or follow the tutorial on reverting back from it on the OP. I've kept it active, though still not 100% sure of it preventing a ban. I got one while in this mode, but I think that's because I was online via Pokemon Sun for way too long (5 or so hours), while running NTR CFW, I won't bother testing how doing so without running any homebrew fares.

    I had made two Godmode9 Scripts, one which creates a backup of the activity log file (00000000), and then proceeds to name it to 00000001. Essentially it is a script which does what you stated. The second script ends the incognito mode session.

    EDIT: I might mess around with the script more, so needless to say I will be updating the upload.

    This is for softwares that show up in the activity log, right?
    So that'd mean stuff like FBI would require you to go into Icognito too.

    I use FBI a lot so going into that mode every time would be annoying, I guess I'll just delete my activity log once I'm about to go online.
    On the other hand, wouldn't a clean activity log but a long playtime in a digital online game alarm Nintendo somehow?
    I don't care about steps/playtime, just want to be as safe as possible.

    It doesn't really matter, the local activity log is never sent to Nintendo, they have their own activity log on their servers that logs everything you do while online anyway, so if you want to be more safe from bans, just don't run .cia homebrew or VC injects when online.

    Ah, alright, thanks for explaining. I expected their own activity log to update when you go online again, using the 3DS activity log.
    I wasn't using anything online except for things that do require internet (like the luma updater), should I update offline and manually if possible?

    You can also block them by configuring your router to block their telemetry servers, or by using a custom DNS. Though, your methods are the best for people who are new to modding XD

    If I am not wrong, they also can see the latest or the actual played game when going online. So if this is right, it is a good advice to also play a legit game before going online/ turn Wi-Fi on.

    Yeah, supposedly, if you have no game/app running it shows the last thing you ran.
    I've heard reports of that so I assume it's true, though it wasn't part of the original post I saw where the traffic was sniffed.
