After Google introduced an incognito mode for YouTube at the beginning of 2019, it is now up to the Google Maps mapping service to adapt the requirements of users to data protection and to align it here.
The incognito mode can be activated by the user in the settings menu of Google Maps. As a result, information such as searched and visited places is no longer stored and used for personalized advertising and search results. According to Google, the update comes first for Android, and will soon follow for iOS.
Also, the privacy settings for the language assistant Google Assistant should be easier, said Google. In the future, saved voice commands that were last given can be conveniently deleted. All you have to do is just say: “Ok Google, delete what I said last to you”.
