Some of Google's apps come with an incognito mode that basically doesn't track what you do, so if you're using a browser on a public computer, switching to incognito mode on Chrome will help give you some semblance of privacy.

The next version of Android, known as Android P, will let users keep tabs on which apps they spend the most time in, number of times you've unlocked your device and more.

YouTube already has a "Pause Watch History" function in case you don't want YouTube logging your history, but it's a little hard to find (you have to scroll all the way to the bottom and navigate through your history). Speaking of which, it seems that the Switch Accounts and Sign Out items will be merged to make room for the toggle.

Incognito Mode has become quite popular over the years for those who are trying to hide online activity from being tracked. It's as if you were signed out without being so, and there's a neat incognito icon replacing your avatar.

We're seeing this feature live in Canada, so go hit up YouTube for iOS on your Apple device and let us know if you're going to turn this on.

I haven't seen the option on my device yet, so it could be a test of sorts, with a few users selected at random.

Thankfully, that's all of us: a quick survey in the TNW newsroom revealed all manner of unnecessary viewing, like this ancient Vine, this way-too-slick clip of beetleweight fighting robots, this primate peeing into its own mouth, and this dude delivering the most profound monologue ever while enjoying an LSD trip in the Thar desert.
