You can use Incognito Mode in Google Maps to protect your privacy by temporarily disabling personal data sharing to Google servers.
Incognito Mode is a relatively new and unknown feature in Google Maps. Like the one in Chrome, this option promises to not save on Google servers the data you generate by using the app.
Here’s how to enter the Incognito Mode in Google Maps:
- Tap your profile picture on the right side of the search bar;
- Now choose the Turn on Incognito Mode option form the menu and close the small window that explains how this feature works.
You can also exit Incognito Mode the same way: by tapping your profile picture to open the menu.
