Google has brought Incognito Mode to Google Maps for iOS, according to an announcement on the company’s website.
According to the blog post, when Google Maps is in Incognito Mode, “the places you search for or navigate to won’t be saved to your Google Account and you won’t see personalized features within Maps, like restaurant recommendations based on dining spots you’ve been to previously. Using Incognito mode on your phone will not update your Location History, so the places you go won’t be saved to your Timeline.”
Google has been working to address concerns about how it handles users’ private data, unveiling new ways for customers to interact with their data and manage what is stored. Incognito Mode is another step in the right direction, allowing individuals to keep their travels private.
