Google Maps now introduces incognito mode in their app

Incognito mode comes in very handy in our day to day life because it helps us to browse the internet without leaving any kind of trace. Now people can use the Google Maps application the same way and there will be no trace left because of the incognito mode.

The incognito mode in the Google Maps was announced at the Google I/O which was today. There are a lot of people who do not want to share the location they are in with the other applications of their phone and this mode will come in handy for them.

The best example to demonstrate this is when someone is searching for a sexual health clinic in their phones, they do not want their phone to pop up places of sexual wellness when their friends are looking at their phone and searching for bars nearby with a happy hour scheme.

This app will help people look for alcoholism support groups and gay bars without the fear of ads popping out in their day to day life. The incognito mode is very simple to use. You can simply tap on your profile picture which is present in the top right-hand corner and you will get to see the incognito mode option. A tap will both turn on and turn off the mode for the users. The mode is not exactly effective because the phone carrier will definitely track your location. All you can do is simply keep the searches on your maps discreet. This mode will not affect any applications which are accessing the maps from your device. You can look for all the restaurants that are close to your location without any kind of issue.

This mode in Google Maps is absolutely new and over time it will be improved by Google and new features will be added. The update for the Google Maps will roll out soon and users can use the incognito mode in their day to day life. Google is now taking extra measures to improve the privacy of all its applications.
