Netflix to Enable Secret Streaming Mode

Netflix catalogs and analyzes every movie and episode of TV you watch, but what if you want to keep some of your guilty pleasure viewing a secret? The company has a solution with its new “Privacy Mode,” which it’s currently testing with a small subset of customers. The company confirmed the news to Gigaom, promising that “Privacy Mode” won’t record your viewing history in any way. That means it won’t show up in your list of previously viewed videos, it won’t be shared to Facebook and it won’t have any effect on its own recommendation algorithms. – Jacob Kleinman,TechnoBuffalo http://ift.tt/1nb84dk
