With Google I / O 2019 keynote out of the way, there have been many news and highlights to take from the event. Google's big push this year is about privacy and security, and one of these features is a private search mode for incognito for its Maps app, much like the Chrome browser and the YouTube app can do right now.
According to Google, this new incognito mode could be enabled in maps by tapping your profile picture at the top right and pressing "Turn on incognito mode". To put it simply, you could search, navigate and visit places without even Google knowing or associating these sites with your account. You have the theoretical freedom to use Maps all you want without leaving a track behind.
There is no end date for this private search mode in Google Maps, but it will likely be released during the coming months, possibly around the time Android 10 is launched to the public. You can look forward to many other core Google apps and services receiving the same privacy and security treatment as the main focus in the future. It is possible that the incognito mode is displayed on both Android and iOS simultaneously, but you can get it before the other.
Google is so dedicated to checking your data as it recently announced to you "I can automatically delete your location data and activity history, instead of keeping it indefinitely or manually clearing it. You may be able to set it to automatically delete your data every three months, which seems like a fairly long time before it is wiped clean.
When we learn more about how incognito search in Google Maps works and when it is available, we & # 39; ll let you know. will also keep you updated on all the news and cool stuff coming out later this year for Android and your Google account, so stay up to date.
