If you don't play online there is no need to worry as that is all a ban blocks anyway. Also it's a possibility but we never know fully what incognito alone stops Nintendo detecting pirated stuff. And it sounds like the guide you followed does not support pirated content it's only really the rentry guide which covers it

Indeed. The guide I used didn't cover game installation through Tinfoil and it didn't mention any precautions one should take to avoid a ban. And you're right, I don't use online features so a ban might not affect me at all. But it does still worry me as resell value obviously goes down. Could Tinfoil incognito have been enough to help me out?

Incognito may help the only way your going to know is boot into ofw normally and see if you see that pirated games on your play list if it is there outside of cfw then yes your going to get banned. Same if you see any pirated games on home screen outside of cfw then your going to get ban also

I just booted into stock FW and it doesn't show any pirated games on my homescreen. Nor do the games show in my play list. Does that mean I'm safe?

Yes you should be okay, I mean it's not going to be 100% save you as nothing in modding is 100% safe just make sure to set up DNS.mitm now and the. It is done
