This code can be given to others and used when you’re located away from a traditional street address. It’s called a “Plus Code,” and it’s available with a tap of the blue circle icon that represents your location in the app.It's a shame the article doesn't give details about the resolution of this Plus Code compared to What Three Words, which gives me different results in different rooms of my home.

Google is building Incognito modes into Maps and search, allowing the apps to be used without having data linked back to a specific person’s account. You could always use these apps privately by opening up a private tab in your browser, but this change will make private modes accessible inside apps as well. Users will be able to tap their profile icon, then choose “turn on Incognito mode,” and the app will stop tracking them.#technology #Google #GoogleMaps #privacy #security
