How to Enable Google Maps Incognito Mode on Android
The new Google Maps Incognito Mode works just how one would think it does. It triggers the familiar grey theme, with a banner that reads, “Incognito mode is on.”
Once enabled, it functions just like Incognito Mode on Chrome. It does not save browsing history and allows for private use.
Previously, it only worked on Preview Maps, but now it’s available to everyone. Here’s how to turn on Incognito Mode in Google Maps on Android:
- Make sure to download the latest version of Google Maps.
- Open Google Maps on an Android-powered phone.
- Tap on the Profile picture in the top right.
- Select “Turn on Incognito Mode.”
