Android users may now lock their incognito sessions with a password code or biometric data when they exit the app thanks to a new Chrome version that is currently rolling out. The feature has long been accessible to iOS users, but it is now also being made available to Android Chrome users.
By selecting the “Lock incognito tabs when you close Chrome” toggle under Chrome Settings > Privacy & Security, users can enable this feature. So, the next time a user closes Chrome, their incognito session will be locked automatically. You can use the phone’s biometric unlock, such as a fingerprint unlock or lock code, to open the incognito tabs.
When looking for a subject that you don’t want to show up in your recommendations or history, this function works nicely.
Even if you are running the most recent version of Google, the update might not yet be available to you since the company has only recently begun spreading it out. If so, you can enable the flag by typing “chrome:/flags/#incognito-reauthentication-for-android” and instantly unlock the capability.
Google announced that it is also improving its Safety Check function as part of a larger upgrade to provide consumers more targeted recommendations about the permissions they have shared with particular sites. For instance, Safety Check will ask you to modify notification access settings if a site is sending out too many messages.
