Google Maps Unveiled Incognito Mode for iOS

Google has recently announced “Incognito” Mode for Google Maps on iOS.

Google has first introduced the security feature at its I/O Developer Conference in May, and it is already available on Android for Google Maps.


‘Incognito’ Mode works the same as it does in the Chrome Browser. When the mode is kept on, you can search for navigating or location somewhere, but Google won’t save the data to your account.


iPhone users can turn this mode on only by tapping their profile picture in the search bar and then tapping “Turn on Incognito Mode”.


However, Google Maps is not the only app to have unveiled Incognito Mode. Google had already introduced an Incognito Mode to YouTube App on Android in 2018. Incognito Modes are significant ways to offer users the option of more privacy if they prefer using one of its apps over the mobile web.


Google further stated that it would roll out the ability next month for users of Android, assist them to bulk-delete data from their location history and timeline. It is likely that users will also be able to tap on locations they want to delete like that of when bulk-archiving emails.
