YouTube introduces incognito mode in Android app

Switching on the mode blocks the user's search history from being tracked.

YouTube has launched an 'incognito mode' feature in its new update.

This new feature, which is presently available only for Android users, will work similar to the incognito mode in the Google Chrome -browser.

Switching on the mode blocks the user's search history from being tracked.


The 'sign out' button has been replaced by a 'turn on incognito' button.

Similar to the Chrome browser, the background will turn greyish-black.

Users' activities will stay hidden until the mode is turned off. However, some reports have suggested that your employers or service provider can still view it.

Apart from the Home and Trending feeds, no other content feed will be available in this mode.

The application will have no access to the user's personal data and will not use the search history. Video suggestions may also not be available, reports suggest.

To disable the incognito mode, users can click on the avatar button on top right corner and choose to turn it off.
