Let's assume you are referring to the privacy modes on the various browsers, yes?

No, this mode will not protect from a government agency or other authority or criminals, for that matter, from logging your web activity. However, it will keep your spouse from seeing the history of "adult" websites that you have visited.

A Virtual Private Network will better help you from snooping entities but they are not perfect.
