Incognito mode is a very important feature not just for our browsers but also for our virtual keyboards. While we want our 3rd party keyboards to learn more about how we type and the language we use, there are times that we don’t want them to remember what we type. SwiftKey is one app that has an incognito mode but you’d have to manually switch to it when you go incognito on your browser as well. Now in the beta version of SwiftKey, it will automatically go into incognito mode as soon as you switch to the same mode in your browser.
Previously, if you switch your browser to incognito, you would also have to manually toggle your SwiftKey to incognito as well. However, there are a lot of times when you would forget to do the second thing. Then the items that you wanted to “hide” from third parties are still there on your virtual keyboard’s memory and the next time you type it might appear and other eyes will be able to see it.
But now, if you’re using the beta version of SwiftKey, every time you would open an incognito tab on your browser, your keyboard will also then automatically go into incognito mode. You’ll know if your keyboard is private based on the grey color and also the overlaid face icon.
If you want to try this out, you’ll have to download the beta version from the Google Play Store. Don’t worry, it won’t replace the main product but just like with other beta apps, it might not work as perfectly as the stable version.
