Google launches Incognito Mode for Google Maps, and more
Google has announced today new privacy-centered updates for three of its services — namely Google Maps, YouTube, and Google Assistant. More specifically, Google Maps will be getting an incognito mode, YouTube is getting a history auto-delete option, and Google Assistant is getting support for voice commands that will help users manage the Assistant’s own privacy settings. In addition, Google also launched a new Password Checkup feature that checks users’ passwords if they’ve been leaked at other online services.
We covered this update in a lot more depth in a separate ZDNet article, in case users want to learn more. Google first announced incognito mode for Google Maps earlier this year in May, at its Google I/O developer conference.
