Google Chrome getting killer upgrade — and it’s an iPhone exclusive

If you’re an iPhone Chrome user, soon you’ll be able to hide your Incognito pages behind Face ID.

If you have Chrome tabs open that you’d rather others not see, then this feature means your secrets will be safe even if you hand over your phone to someone else. As the patch notes on the TestFlight app (via 9to5Google) explain: “When you return to the Chrome app, your incognito tabs will be blurred until you confirm it’s you.”

The latest Chrome iOS beta gives the option for you to hide your private browser pages behind your iPhone’s unlocking system. You can use Touch ID or Face ID to do it, so you won’t need an iPhone 12 or iPad Pro specifically to use this feature.

To activate the feature, you need to go to the Privacy section of the settings menu, and enable the option “Lock Incognito tabs”.
