Video: Incognito On The Go With Google Maps: So You Leave No Traces
2023 Author: Sheila Hailey | [email protected]. Last modified: 2023-11-26 15:18
As soon as you use Google Maps on an Android smartphone, you are automatically logged in to Google. As long as you have not switched off the recording of location history, search history and the web and app activities in the data protection settings of your account, your actions will also be recorded in Google Maps. You can switch this directly through the incognito mode in Google Maps.
At the moment (October 2019) Google has announced the new feature. In the next few weeks, the app should also reach us and then you can quickly switch incognito mode on and off with two finger tips.
How your incognito works in Google Maps:
- Opens the Google Maps app.
- Your profile picture can be seen at the top right. Tap on it.
- Now a small menu opens in which you can activate or deactivate incognito mode.
From that moment on, your searches will no longer be recorded. Google Maps treats you as if you weren't signed in. Among other things, this means that your personal places are no longer particularly emphasized and you do not receive any personalized recommendations in the maps.
Incognito mode will appear first on Google Maps for Android, but Google has already announced that iOS should follow quickly.
