Data breaches and online security concerns are becoming more common over time. To ensure their safety, internet users have begun to look for additional ways to protect their privacy. For this, many users have turned to their preferred browser’s incognito mode. The incognito mode usually hides users’ browsing history and doesn’t save their website cookies or data. The feature is available across almost all the popular browsers, including Google Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.
While desktop users can easily toggle their browser’s incognito mode to veil their browsing activity across the internet, mobile users rely on dedicated apps to view their favourite websites. Many of these apps (YouTube, for example) don’t come packaged with easily-accessible incognito features.
Here’s good news for mobile YouTube users. Google is currently testing an Incognito mode function/feature for the YouTube Android app. YouTube’s incognito mode in mobile app will hide subscriptions and “activity.” This feature will reportedly be accessible through the account menu. Within that, users will find a simple “Turn on Incognito” option.
The feature isn’t available to everyone yet. The company seems to be testing it at random, and strictly among Android users at the moment. Hopefully, we will see the feature for all the higher version of Androids soon. When will the feature rollout for Apple, or will it roll out at all is unknown.
