Are you a Google Maps user on iPhone, but wish there was a way to hide your personal information, especially the places you’ve been to or even the places you’ve searched?

Wish granted! In an article for Mashable, Sasha Lekach reported that starting Monday, iPhone users can go incognito like they do using other apps or social media sites.

The option has already been available to Android users since October.

The possibility of offering incognito mode for Google Maps users on iPhone was first introduced by Google in May at the Google I/O Conference.

Users can turn on incognito mode by clicking one’s profile photo and turning it on.

What’s interesting about it is that the user can control how much information is saved and stored about the places they’ve navigated to and searched.
