It’s now possible to go ‘incognito’ in Google’s iOS app

Google released an update to its iOS search app that allows users to browse content privately without their keywords and browser history being saved.

The company notes in its version update notes on the App Store that users can enter incognito mode with a 3D shortcut by hard pressing on the Google icon.

What is perhaps even more interesting, however, is that users can enable Touch ID for incognito mode. This will lock down the private browser after you’ve left it, only allowing re-entry if they provide an authorized fingerprint.

Other changes made in the update include a performance improvement that reportedly reduced the crash rate by 50 percent, and the ability to watch YouTube videos directly from search results without being booted to the YouTube app or a webpage.
