The incognito mode for chrome browser cannot be enforced on the devices. Google Chrome's Incognito mode does not work as expected, it's a known issue. We already raised this with Google however they haven't suggested any workaround yet.

  1. I have made a few changes to the device profile but when I hit update Profile on the last screen, it is not proceeding past the screen or processing the update.

It seems you have the Last passcode extension enabled on the Chrome browser. Please disable it once, try to update the profile and then you can turn it back on again if needed. You can keep it enabled all the time. It causes problems only when you want to update the device profile because the dashboard cannot read the passcode for the device profile prior to updating it.
