With the keynote address for Google I / O 2019 out of the way, there were plenty of news and highlights from the event. Google's big concern this year is privacy and security. One of these features is a private incognito search mode for the Maps app, much like the Chrome browser and the YouTube app currently can.
According to Google You can activate this new incognito mode in Google Maps by tapping on the top right of your profile picture and then on "Activate incognito mode". Simply put, you can search, navigate, and visit places without Google knowing these locations or assigning them to your account. Theoretically, you have the freedom to use all the cards you want without leaving a trace.
There is no definitive release date for this private search on Google Maps, but it is likely to be published in the coming months, possibly at the time that Android 10 is released to the public. You can look forward to treating many other important Google apps and services in the future, with privacy and security in the foreground. It is possible that the incognito mode will be displayed on Android and iOS at the same time, but one could be displayed before the other.
Google works so hard to keep control over your information. You can automatically delete your location data and Activity Log instead of saving it indefinitely or manually deleting it. You may be able to set your data to be automatically deleted every three months. This seems to take a long time to clear.
As soon as we get more information on the functionality and availability of incognito search on Google Maps, we'll let you know. We'll also keep you up to date on the latest news and cool news coming out this year for Android and your Google Account.
