Incognito mode has been introduced by Google for years in its Chrome browser. This mode pauses search history so that whatever website you visit in that mode won’t be included in your history. It also will not link the generated data during the browsing session to your Google account.

The company has expanded Incognito Mode to other services and has confirmed recently that it will soon be available on Google Maps.

“Coming soon to @googlemaps, when you turn on Incognito mode in Maps, your activity —like the places you search or get directions to—won’t be saved to your Google Account. Just tap from your profile picture to easily turn it on or off. #io19″, said by Google on their tweet

YouTube itself has received Incognito Mode moments ago and now Maps has changed.

The company confirmed at the Google I / O 2019 conference that Google Maps will receive Incognito Mode in the near future.

This feature will accessible via the new Google Account menu in the application. This menu appears when you tap your display image.

When Incognito Mode is activated, the place you are looking for and navigating to will not be linked to your Google account.

The gray bar at the top will notify users that they are looking for a place in Incognito Mode, so users who want their privacy can take advantage of this mode.

This is a neat little feature and certainly has its own fan base in the Chrome browser. It’s good to see that Google takes it to Maps too.

Unfortunately, Google does not provide a definite date for Incognito Mode in Maps, only saying that it will be launched soon.
