Android can’t do that: Google Chrome for iPhone learned to block “Incognito”

Google began testing an interesting innovation for the branded Chrome browser in the version for iPhone and iPad.

In the beta version of Google Chrome for iOS, it became possible to lock tabs in Incognito mode using biometric authorization – Face ID facial recognition system or Touch ID fingerprint scanner.

After activating this option, the user will need to verify their identity using Touch ID or Face ID to see the tabs in Incognito mode. As planned by the developers, this will bring increased security – the “Incognito” tabs will be blurred, hiding the content.

For example, this can be useful if you let someone Google your iPhone or iPad. A stranger will not see what you watched in “Incognito” mode if he wants to politely close his tab – in the page switcher, such tabs will be blurred. Also, the “Incognito” tabs cannot be viewed when switching between applications.

The option is activated in the menu “Settings”> “Privacy”> “Block incognito tabs when closing Chrome.”
