Google’s iOS App Now Lets You Browse Privately “Incognito Mode”

Just like Google chrome, Google has introduced incognito mode into its iOS app. You are now free from embarrassment and can have a peaceful and private search on your iPhone.

Incognito mode

Before we go all techki, What’s incognito mode?

Incognito mode is one of the best privacy features in some web browsers. It allows you disable browser history along side with web cache, using incognito mode helps you browse any website without storing any form of data that could be retrieved later. Such types of data include password.

What’s so cool about this feature to Google’s iOS app?

One interesting part of this update is that Google now lets you lock private searches with the aid of Touch ID, so in case someone decides to hold your phone, they just won’t be able to see what has been open inside your private tabs within the app simply because you’ve turned on incognito.

It looks just like that on Google chrome; whenever you turn on incognito mode, it will switch to a custom dark theme – signifying that you’re no longer in the regular browser mode.

Incognito privacy

If you own an iPhone 6s, 6s plus, 7 or 7 plus, you can switch to the incognito mode by 3D touch. All you need to do is press the app icon for a long time.

It’s worth mentioning that Google’s iOS app update also comes with a feature that allows you to view YouTube videos directly from its search result, I guess this will save a lot of us the stress of opening a different application just to watch clips.

This update may not sound like a dig deal, but I know a couple of people who are obsessed with their privacy, this update should calm them down.

If you like the Google’s iOS app, feel free to download it from the App Store
