Google Maps gets incognito mode on iOS
Google Maps users on the iPhone are finally getting their hands on incognito mode.
The feature – which has been available on Android devices for months – lets user’s travel and brows areas without being tracked. Just yesterday, Google announced that the feature was being rolled out to iOS apps around the world.
Incognito mode stops map data from being stored to Google accounts, which lets you move around anonymously. With this mode activated, you will no longer get tailored recommendations or other customisation features.
Android users have had this too for months now, and are soon to get another privacy feature – the ability to delete their timeline and location history in bulk. As per usual, iPhone users will once again have to wait for the feature.
Android users can look forward to that update in January.
