The description of "Incognito Away - Disable Incognito Tabs" app from https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.smajenterprise.incognitoaway&hl=en_US as of 20191214T0612CET. Table below the description says about the app was "Updated December 9, 2017".

Your Incognito Tab Blocker - Incognito Away.
Incognito Away disables and blocks Incognito Tabs from *Google Chrome*, *Microsoft Edge*, *Brave Browser*, and other browsers (see below).

Once installed, you just need to open the app, and enable a quick setting. That’s it!
From then on, ALL Incognito tabs will be blocked as soon as they are opened – it’s instant.

Update: Incognito Away now supports: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Brave Browser, Iron Browser, Ecosia, Yu Browser and Start Internet Browser.

Give the app a try - you've got nothing to lose ✓
Feel free to give the app a try. You can always get an automatic refund within the first 48 hours! ✓✓✓

Activity Logging ✓
Track and log a user’s web activity such as downloads, videos, audio and music played in their web browser.
If someone later clears their browsing history, Incognito Away will still have a copy for you to see!

Uninstall Protection ✓ Worried someone might find this app and just uninstall it?
Worry not. Incognito Away has an Uninstall and Anti Tamper Guard built in.

This prevents users from trying to uninstall Incognito Away or tamper with the device settings it depends upon.

If you ever need to actually uninstall Incognito Away, just enter in your password, and you’re away.

Scheduled Monitoring ✓
Choose to have Incognito Tabs blocked within a specified time frame – for example, from 9PM at night to 8AM in the morning.

You can also enable scheduled activity logging too.

Warning Message Prompts ✓
Configure the app to display a pop up alert when someone tries to open an Incognito Tab. This is a great way to give someone a reminder.

Safe, Secure, Efficient. ✓
This is an offline app – meaning, that this app never ever talks to the internet, and there’s no ads.
This is great because unlike other apps, it means that you can rest assured that information such as web activity only ever stays on your device.

You can confirm that this is an offline app by checking Incognito Away’s data usage in your device settings.
Additionally, this app is tiny, has a minimal footprint and does not hog system resources at all. The Blocking Service and Uninstall Guard service are smart enough to spawn only when necessary – saving your battery life.
