Google Chrome Now Lets You Lock Incognito Tabs

Google has shared some safety tips for using Chrome and announced a new feature for the Android browser to commemorate Data Privacy Day.

When you exit the app, you can lock Incognito tabs and unlock them with a screen lock such as a biometric scan, PIN, or pattern.

When you open Chrome, you will be prompted to use your preferred screen unlock method to access the Incognito tabs, while the public tabs will remain accessible.

This new Chrome on Android feature is extremely useful for shared devices where you want to keep your browsing private. Because the Android version of Chrome still lacks the ability to use multiple profiles, this can be useful in that situation.

However, Google has stated that the feature is still in the process of being rolled out, so some users may have to wait. Meanwhile, keep your Chrome app on Android up to date to ensure that you receive the update as soon as possible.

You can do so by going to the Google Play Store and checking your list of available app updates. You can also look for Google Chrome in the search bar to get there quickly.

Pakistan will most likely receive the update as soon as it is made available globally.
