YouTube refreshed with new design and logo

YouTube App Now Has Incognito Mode

Most of the tech savvy know that Google always tries to do something innovative through new services and within their current services as well. YouTube is known as one of the most popular and most used internet services around the globe. Google constantly change various internals on YouTube to improvise our YouTube experience. Now today, they bought another new feature for us.

We all use ‘Incognito Mode’ in our browsers whenever we want to search something which we want to hide from others, even from the browser. Now Google has bought the same feature on the YouTube mobile app. Users can watch videos without leaving the search history behind. Just watch any video you want, and it will not be shown in your search history. But do note that due to security reasons, your search & watch history can be accessible to internet service providers, and other connectivity heads like school, college, and office Wi-Fi. Below are the steps to turn on the Incognito mode in the YouTube app:

  • Click on Profile option at top-right.
  • Click on ‘Turn on Incognito’, that’s it. The profile picture on top-right will turn into Incognito logo.

To turn off the Incognito mode:

  • Click on Profile option at top-right.
  • Click on ‘Turn off Incognito’.

Do note that once you enter into this Incognito mode, you can only access the Home and Trending section. You cannot go to Subscriptions, Inbox, and Library sections. Also, you cannot like or comment on the videos while being in Incognito mode.

So that’s all the information we have as of now. It would be a good feature for those who watch adult content or some weird content (not me, 😂😂😂). What are your thoughts on this? Will you use Incognito mode on YouTube? Let me know in the comment section below (but not the content you going to watch). Also stay tuned with us for more information.
