Google Chrome’s Incognito Tab Will Need Your Fingerprint to Unlock

Google Chrome’s Incognito mode is about to get another layer of security on Android. iOS devices already had a Privacy Screen feature on several Google apps that required Touch or Face ID for authentication. Now Android devices are finally getting it too.

Chrome for Android will let you protect Incognito tabs with fingerprint authentication. If you have private tabs open and close Chrome, the app will automatically lock them behind biometric verification. This could come in handy when you need to hand your phone to someone else and want to keep your private tabs running.

It is already available on other Google apps such as Drive, Search, Fi, Chrome, and more.
