To check whether Incognito Mode in YouTube is enabled or not, check the avatar icon which will be replaced by a Black Incognito symbol. You Would be able to see a Black bar at the bottom with a message ‘You’re incognito’.

If you don’t see the incognito option in your app, get the latest version of YouTube installed on your phone.
