    Google Maps' Incognito Mode won't help to protect your location
    But just like Incognito in Chrome's browser, it doesn't stop your location being recorded

    Sounds on the surface like a useful privacy feature. But truth be known that digital data may show delete on the end user side but you can bet your buttons it's safely stored away in their compartmentalized setups for present or future reference and access.
