How to turn On and Off Incognito Mode in Google Maps on Android
Incognito mode is a standard option in most modern browsers. This option can be useful in other applications as well. Google Maps contains this option and it can be surprisingly handy.
When you turn on Incognito Mode in Google Maps, a number of things will happen. First, just like in the browsers, everything you search for will not be saved.
