Google has released a new feature for Chrome on Android that allows users to lock their incognito session with a PIN or fingerprint. This means that anyone who wants to access your private browsing session will need to enter a PIN or use their fingerprint to unlock it.
This new feature is aimed at providing users with an added layer of security and privacy when using Chrome’s incognito mode. It is particularly useful for people who share their device with others, as it prevents anyone else from accessing your private browsing history.
To enable this feature, simply go to Chrome’s settings and select “Privacy” from the menu. From there, you can turn on the option to “Lock incognito tabs” and set a PIN or fingerprint. Once this is done, you will need to enter your PIN or use your fingerprint every time you want to access an incognito tab.
This feature is a great addition to Chrome for Android and it is also expected to be added to Chrome for iOS in future updates. With this, Chrome for Android now becomes one of the most secure browsers available for mobile devices.
As more and more people are concerned about their online privacy, it’s great to see Google taking steps to improve the security and privacy of Chrome for Android. The ability to lock incognito tabs is a valuable addition that will give users peace of mind when using Chrome’s private browsing mode.
