Google Maps: Incognito mode lands on iOS


Google Maps users who have an iOS device now have access to a tool that Android users have had for months: the incognito mode.

In October, Google began deploying an Android Maps mode allowing users to perform geographic searches without the information being saved. On December 9, the company announced that the feature had begun to be deployed on the iOS versions of the application.

This mode allows you to not keep the Maps data in the user’s Google Account and move anonymously. When the feature is enabled, the user no longer benefits from custom recommendations and preferences.

Android users, now familiar with this mode, will soon have access to another privacy feature in Maps. As of January, they will be able to erase the chronological elements and the history of the places visited.
