Google Search and Maps in line to get Incognito mode

08 May 2019 3

Incognito mode is helpful when the user doesn’t want to be traced back by advertisers or other applications. Google Chrome and many other browsers have this private mode built in and now Google has announced that it is working on incognito modes for Google Maps and Search.

Both these apps will have a user icon, once tapped, they will get an option to “turn on incognito mode” after selecting the incognito mode, the apps will stop tracking the user activities. This feature will be welcomed by users as they often search for many things and places that are sensitive in nature and they do not want these to be tracked.

Google, apart from building the incognito mode, will make it easier for users to check what kind of data the app is collecting. In apps like chrome, search, Assistant, YouTube, News, and Maps users can click on the Profile icon and then tap on “Your Data” under settings. While the incognito mode will take some time coming to your devices, the web and app data will be available starting today.
