What is Incognito Mode on YouTube?
Turning on Incognito Mode on YouTube allows you to browse and watch videos anonymously, without reflecting the results in your search and watch history. The videos you watch will not have any effect on your YouTube feed and suggestions, which is a big plus. Similarly, if you want to have a look at the general YouTube feed outside of your suggestions, log into incognito mode.
Earlier, you would have to log out of your YouTube account to view a neutral feed and watch videos without being bombarded with similar suggestions. Now you can simply turn on incognito mode for a private viewing session. It goes without saying but you cannot like a video or comment on it while you’re in incognito mode. You cannot subscribe to a YouTube channel either.
Here’s how you can turn on Incognito Mode on YouTube
Step 1: Launch the YouTube app on your smartphone.
Step 2: Tap on your profile icon at the top right corner of the screen.
Step 3: Select ‘Turn on Incognito’ and confirm your selection in the popup box.
Step 4: Incognito mode will now be turned on for YouTube.
Step 5: To turn off Incognito Mode, simply tap on your profile icon again and select ‘Turn off incognito’.
