Google Maps ‘Incognito mode’ has a new change making it even more private

Google has already brought its popular ‘Incognito mode’ to Maps but now it’s making it even more private.

The tech giant has announced the ability to remove locations from a user’s timeline.

It’s an effort to try and improve Google’s privacy credentials to better compete with Apple – which is extremely vocal on the issue of user privacy.

Google Maps will now allow Apple iOS users to search for and navigate to places without that data being saved to their Google account. And the company is also rolling out the ability for Android users to delete in bulk previously visited locations from their in-app timeline.

Google said the changes were the latest step in a plan to improve user control of their data.

Google Maps product manager Marlo McGriff said: ‘Throughout this year, we’ve focused on making it easier to control, manage and delete your location history information.

‘Location history is off by default and you can choose to delete all or part of your history automatically when you turn it on.

‘We introduced auto-delete controls so you can choose to keep only three or 18-months worth of data – anything older than that will be automatically deleted.’

Social media and internet companies have come under increasing pressure in the past year to give users more control over their data and to improve their own privacy controls.

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU last year gave more powers to users to control how firms use their data, while a number of high-profile data breaches and scandals involving the likes of Facebook have increased scrutiny on the industry.

Incognito mode has previously been available on Android, but its expansion to iOS will increase the number of users able to access it.

Google confirmed that the rollout of Incognito mode to iOS would begin on Tuesday, with the bulk-delete from timeline feature arriving next month.

Incognito Mode was initially launched on Google’s Chrome browser in 2008 and it was introduced to YouTube earlier this year.

You can toggle on Incognito Mode by tapping on your profile picture in Google Maps and enabling the option.

‘When you turn on Incognito mode in Maps, your Maps activity on that device, like the places you search for, won’t be saved to your Google Account and won’t be used to personalize your Maps experience,’ said Eric Miraglia, director of product management in Google’s privacy and data protection office, in a blog post.

‘Our goal has always been to create products that are simple, helpful, and intuitive. It’s no different with privacy and security: managing your data should be just as easy as making a restaurant reservation, or using Maps to find the fastest way back home.

‘Making these controls consistent across our core products will help them become more familiar, and we hope, even easier to use. Today, we’re sharing a few more updates on our progress toward this goal.’

Shocking footage shows a police officer trying to drag his colleague to safety during a New Jersey shooting which left six dead.

Two shooters, a man and a woman, killed one policeman and three civilians on December 10, after first opening fire at Bay View Cemetery, in Jersey City.

The suspects then drove a stolen rental van to another part of the city and sprayed bullets into a kosher supermarket on Martin Luther King Drive.

A video, filmed by a bystander, shows a police officer injured by gunfire lying on the pavement behind a car during the incident.

Another officer can then be seen sprinting over to their colleague and attempting to drag them away.

The pair are believed to be Ray Sanchez and Mariela Fernandez, one of whom who sustained an injury to their body and the other to their shoulder.

They have both since been released from hospital in a good condition.

Both shooters were killed in the gunfire, Jersey City Police Chief Michael Kelly confirmed.

Detective Joseph Seals, 39, who had been in service for 15 years, has now been named as the police officer killed in the attack.

The married father-of-five was a member of the CeaseFire Unit, a special team that tries to deescalate gun violence and get firearms off the streets.

He had approached the two suspects in Bay View Cemetery at around 12.30pm as part of an ongoing investigation, Chief Kelly said.

They then shot him dead before taking off in a stolen rental van and opening fire with ‘high-powered rifles’ at JC Kosher Supermarket.

Last night Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said he believed the supermarket, which has a synagogue next door, could have been targeted deliberately.

He said: ‘Based on our initial investigation (which is ongoing) we now believe the active shooters targeted the location they attacked.

‘Due to an excess of caution the community may see additional police resources in the days/weeks ahead. We have no indication there are any further threats.’

He added that he knew the entire Jersey City community is ‘standing together with the Jewish Community during these challenging times’.

City Public Safety Director James Shea said earlier Tuesday that authorities believe the shooting was not an act of terrorism but that it was still under investigation.

Thousands of protesters have gathered in the heart of Sydney to demand immediate climate action as bushfires continue to burn across the state. 

The activists donned smoke masks and displayed creative signs as they flocked to Town Hall for the climate emergency rally at 5.30pm on Wednesday. 

The protesters have declared a climate emergency in New South Wales, with unprecedented bushfires ravaging the state and Sydney being infiltrated by toxic smoke.  

The group, who navigated around Sydney’s Light Rail test runs on George Street, marched down Park Street and to Hyde Park. One police officer estimated the number of protesters could exceed 7,500.

One activist dressed up dressed up as a koala and carried plush toys of the native animal alongside a banner reading ‘homeless’.

A blanket of ‘unbreathable’ smoke shrouded NSW on Tuesday as temperatures soared past 40C and firefighters battled to control potentially lethal conditions before a southerly change saw the mercury plummet.

Authorities say Tuesday’s air quality in Sydney was among the worst recorded. Smoke across the region was so thick at one point it was 11 times poorer than typically hazardous levels in some suburbs.

Protesters wore P2 masks for the rally and used posters to comment on the lingering smoke haze and disappearance of blue skies.

A former NSW fire chief helping fight unprecedented bushfires across the state says federal government inaction on climate change is ‘galling’ and politicians are continuing to gag debate.

Ex-fire and rescue commissioner Greg Mullins was part of a coalition of former fire bosses who in November said Canberra should declare a climate emergency in the face of a ‘new age of unprecedented bushfire danger’.

A month on, he says political leaders have continued stifling debate because ‘if you don’t have an answer for something you try and divert the conversation’.

‘We’re talking about 100 or more years of pouring greenhouse gases into the atmosphere but it falls to this government to take action.

‘Nobody is saying climate change causes bushfires, it just exacerbates the conditions for them to turn out like this.

‘We have to take note. We must demand our government take real measures so that 30 years or 100 years in the future people have a better chance than they do now.’

More than 720 homes have been destroyed over the fire season so far.

‘Unfortunately the number of homes destroyed in this fire season continues to rise – now 724 homes confirmed lost. 2.7 million hectares burnt,’ RFS deputy commissioner Rob Rogers said on Twitter on Wednesday.

Air quality was on Wednesday morning deemed ‘hazardous’ across Sydney’s east, southwest and northwest, despite improved visibility.

The Bureau of Meteorology says although conditions have eased, the smoke will continue to linger over the next few days. 

‘We are expecting (the smoke) to continue over the next few days … with fires to the southwest and north of Sydney, we need easterly winds to help ease the smoke,’ a BOM forecaster told AAP.

Total fire bans are in place on Wednesday for northwestern NSW, the northern slopes and the central ranges.

The rally, named ‘NSW is Burning, Sydney is Choking – Climate Emergency Rally!’ on Facebook, was organised by Extinction Rebellion, Greens MP David Shoebridge and Uni Students for Climate Change.  

The protest event description reads: ‘For year after year governments have denied the approaching climate emergency and expanded the fossil fuel industry while cutting funding to fire and other essential services and mismanaging vital river and water systems.’

‘Now the result is here: unprecedented drought, bushfires, and now a massive health crisis, with millions choking, with no escape, and severe consequences for people’s immediate and long term health.’ 

The group are demanding no new coal, oil and gas projects, 100 per cent publicly owned renewable energy generation and exports by 2030 and job transition for all fossil-fuel workers. 

They are also calling for the government to reverse the funding cuts to RFS and NSW Fire and Rescue and to address the toxic smoke.
