Given that we type so many sensitive details, such as passwords, OTPs, and other personal information, utilising the mobile keyboard in Incognito mode makes the most sense. In reality, newer keyboards can retrieve one-time passwords (OTPs) sent to you by text message. Additionally, the keyboard app’s clipboard stores any content that has been copied. Here’s where you’ll want your keyboard’s Incognito mode.
Keyboard programmes like Gboard for Android and Apple Keyboard for iOS and iPadOS now have a private browsing mode. Swiftkey, developed by Microsoft, also features a private browsing mode. However, this is not how it is done in practise. Still, they perform adequately under pressure. Here, therefore, is how to make use of keyboards’ anonymous mode.
How to use Incognito mode on mobile keyboard
The incognito mode is included in the default keyboard app on both iOS and Android. But they only function on Safari and Chrome. When you activate the keyboard’s incognito mode, they are activated immediately. Other than that, there is no switch to activate or deactivate it as needed.
When using anonymous mode, the keyboard’s colours also alter. When using incognito mode, the Apple Keyboard goes black while the Gboard displays a border around the keys.
To do this, you can use the Swiftkey. Users have the freedom to switch on and off incognito mode whenever they like.
