Google’s latest tweak for Chrome is focused on security and it is exclusive for iOS users, including iPad users. This app update upgrades Chrome to its 92nd app version that allows Apple devices to secure its incognito tabs with either a password, face ID, or fingerprint verification.
This feature improves the privacy system of your browser and your device entirely whereby someone else can’t just pry into your activities without your consent — especially when you aren’t with your phone.
For context, the surreptitious nature of incognito tabs is now developed to be more stealthy whereby reopening Chrome after minimizing your browser will not display any content until authentication is approved.
Aside from security improvements on Chrome for iOS, Google also designed Chrome’s New Tab Page with Discovery now has a new look. The entire Chrome for iOS has been revamped — specifically, it includes, bookmarks, Settings, and History.
It is worth noting that, Chrome v92 for iOS will require authentication to confirm you want to close your tabs via Tab Switcher to avoid mistakes, while single tabs can as well be added to read later, bookmarked, and shared via Tab Switcher.
Chrome v92 now has a button for screenshots that are expected to capture the entire page. Unlike your typical screenshot technique, this feature allows you to capture the top to the bottom of a page — to access this click “Full Page” on the screenshot editor.
However, note that the iPhone’s inbuilt web browser, Safari has a surreptitious mode for surfing the internet but it does not have a security system to bolster privacy. Without further ado, to enable customized security on your incognito tabs, go to Settings >> Privacy >> then Lock Incognito Tabs.
