To clarify, there is a small glitch with this one that might occur with you (happened to some, not others, and only affects the start). Workaround is relatively easy.

The achievement is during the case "The Set Up" during Vice. After you will need to complete a 5 minute tailing section without being noticed OR without taking cover / going incognito

The achievement description highlights "without using cover or incognito, except when starting or picking up the trail". IGNORE THIS ADVICE. You begin the case auto-moving into an incognito position and you should hypothetically be able to stay incognito this one time only. However, when the complete edition came out this glitched and this seems to be a hangover of that. If you complete this as indicated, you probably won't get the achievement. Instead, you will need to not go incognito at all.

The guide on TA's full walkthrough (360) is perfect except for this detail, which they could not have anticipated. I'll hand it over to a quote directly from this amazing source and just cross out the single piece of invalid information.

"Firstly, stay in the first incognito spot spam RT and move away from the bench so you don't go incognito, the SPRINT 90 degrees left to the until you are hidden in the reception area. Candy goes in front of you and walks past the pale wall in the distance. Then, run down the street and hide behind the wall without going into cover. When she has gone past the lorry in front of you, use the lorry as a hiding spot, again, without going into cover. The key is to stand out of eyesight, behind something taller than you are, and you can’t be spotted. Trouble is, Candy has eyes like a hawk.

From the lorry, wait until Candy has got to the street. She looks around for a second, then heads to the right. When she starts walking again, move to the blue car in front of you. Wait until Candy is nearly at the next street and Cole will say something about losing the trail. Move a little up the fence in front of you, until a tree is covering you, then hop over and use the tree to hide. A lorry of some sort will come from the right hand side down the road Candy has just crossed. Run to it and hide behind the tall part. It's difficult to see Candy at this point, as you’re letting her get quite far ahead.

Wait as long as you can, until the lorry pulls off and then run for the building ahead, to the right of Candy. Make sure to move to the right as you run, so that you cover yourself as you run to the building.

Wait for Candy to reach the road and take a right. Cole will say something about being too far away again, and you can move to the corner of the building you’re currently behind, using the pillar as cover. You’ll be stood by an incognito spot, but don’t go incognito

Wait again until Candy is going behind the tree and pillar in front of you, and Cole speaks again. Head for the pillar and you’ll reach it just as Candy disappears behind the buildings. Now run for the building.

Candy heads for the street in front of you, and starts to head left across the main road. Use the thick tree in front of you, and the car just beyond that, then carefully cross the road, using the red house to cover you.

Cole next speaks when Candy starts to take a left, past the houses. Use the car parked in the drive of the house you just hid behind, then when she’s gone safely past, arch around to the right and hide behind the dumpsters that she just took a left at, so you’re behind her again.

Wait until she has nearly crossed the car park, and then run to the second set of dumpsters on the right. Candy starts to head to the right, but stops and looks around before she passes the houses, so make sure you are nicely covered by the dumpster before. She then heads past the white house, so use it and run to the corner to see her again.

Wait until she has gone a bit past the small white outhouse looking thing in front of you, and then make it behind that. Candy heads for the alleyway on the left of your screen, so wait until she’s heading down there and follow her, staying behind the right hand building.

When she reaches the end of the alley, she turns right. Run down the alley when you see her disappear and when you reach the end, the cutscene will trigger, signalling the end of the mission, and an achievement for you."
