Switch Incognito - Remove Identification Information and Prevent Bans

This guide will show you how to set up Incognito on your hacked Nintendo Switch. Incognito will remove your device’s personal identification information; Nintendo servers will no longer be able to connect to your device and you will not be banned for connecting to the internet with your console. Your Switch’s identification information will be saved to a file on your SD and can be restored at any time.

It is advised to have a NAND backup of your Switch that is stored in a safe place, the only the way to restore your Switch’s identification information (prodinfo_.bin) file without a copy is through the use of a full NAND backup.
