The YouTube mobile app has gained an update that allows users to browse completely anonymously. This means that, with the option activated, it is possible to watch videos without leaving a trace, without worrying that they will be saved in the history or that they intervene in the content suggestions.
At the same time, in anonymous mode, it is not possible to subscribe to channels, enjoy videos or make comments. When you disable the function, the app automatically returns to the last profile you were logged in to.
