YouTube’s Incognito Mode-Now Enjoy Videos Without being traced

Just like web browsers, now YouTube too have added the incognito mode. While watching videos in incognito mode your searches and activities will not be traced, saved or show you in recommended videos in future.

As you are on incognito mode, you are logged out of your account on youtube. In this mode you can only see the Home and Trending sections active. Currently this feature is available for Android users, but hopefully soon iOS users will this update too.

This feature will add a new level of privacy as if any one in your family or friend use your phone. Then your activities will not be shown. So, now you can watch your secret, controversial or any such videos you want without being tracked.

But it still warns users that “your activity might still be visible to your employer, school, or internet service provider.” It means you cannot hide all the traces of being online or surfing within incognito mode also.
