How to enable Google Maps ‘Incognito Mode’?

“When you turn on Incognito mode in Maps, your activity—like the places you search or get directions to—won’t be saved to your Google Account...” - Google (tweet)

To enable/disable:
 - Tap your profile photo in the upper right corner of 'Google Maps' app
 - Hit "Turn on incognito mode" / " Turn off Incognito mode"
(Will see your profile photo turn into a little spy icon and Maps will display a black bar on top, indicating that Incognito mode is ON)
