Google Maps Incognito Mode is in Testing Phase Now


Google rolled out its new Incognito mode feature to the preview group for testing purposes. Google has announced this feature in its I/O four months back and now the company is all set to test this feature. The main aim of this feature is to maintain proper privacy regarding the locations that you enter into it. If you observe the incognito mode in Chrome, you will see that the details or your search history won’t be stored there. Similarly, the locations that you search for, the destinations that you enter in this incognito mode will remain secret only.

If you want to keep the locations of your activity at a particular time on Google Maps private, all you have to do is go into the incognito mode. Google will not save your activity and keep everything private. The company has launched this feature for YouTube earlier and is planning on launching it for Google Pay too. As of now, you will see it for Google Maps. The testers received an mail from Google stating that they can now check the performance of Google Incognito mode.

When you open maps, you have to click on your profile picture and select the incognito mode. There will be a black bar present on the screen saying that the incognito mode is on. This way you will know when it is on and when it is off. The test group users who are using Maps version 10.26 or above will be able to use the feature. All the other Google Maps users have to wait for some time for this feature. Google hasn’t announced the official date when it will roll out this feature yet.
