Google Maps has been updated to include Incognito Mode; however, this feature is only for Android users for now. The public rollout is expected to be implemented in phases so Android users of Google Maps have to wait “for a few days.”

The Incognito Mode for Google Maps will ensure your activities in Maps, i.e., your location searches and direction enquiries, will not be saved by the Google Account. This is useful when you are using a shared device for your wayfinding needs. Do note that by enabling this mode “does not affect how your activity is used or saved by internet providers, other apps, voice search, and other Google services.”
