As data breaches and online security concerns become more common over time, internet users have begun to look for additional ways to protect their privacy. Previously, only browsers had built in incognito mode functionality, but now, some Android apps offer an Incognito Mode as well.

Going Incognito works in the same way as it does on Chrome, preventing any activity from showing up in the browsing history. This would mean that as of the moment, not everyone can enjoy the feature since it is not available on the Google Play Store just yet.

A new YouTube TV "Voice Remote" feature is now available to some Android devices.

There's good news for mobile YouTube fans now, though.


When the incognito mode is enabled, YouTube users will receive a notification explains their activity rom the session will be cleared. This feature is said to be accessible via a floating action button on the screen.

Android Police has posted screenshots of an easy-to-find option to "Turn on Incognito" within the account settings in the YouTube app. According to Android Police, however, a "turn on incognito" option will soon appear in the drop-down that appears when users tap their account avatars.

This feature seems to be in very early testing, so keep an eye out for it in the near future. The feature will be added without a specific app update, but it is not now available to all users.
