Chrome for iOS gets biometric authentication for incognito tabs

Google today updated its Chrome app for iOS devices to version 92, and introduced a new feature that allows iPhone and iPad users to protect incognito tabs with Touch ID, Face ID or password.

Locked incognito tabs will not be visible until they are approved after leaving the Chrome app and reopening it, which prevents anyone accessing your device from seeing your Chrome tabs. To enable this feature, go to Settings> Privacy> Lock incognito tabs. Safari does not have a comparable feature for its private tabs.

In addition to incognito protection, Google has also added a feature to take a screenshot of an entire web page. When taking a screenshot, use the “Entire Page” option at the top of the screenshot editor to capture the entire page.

There is also a new Discover design on the New Tab page, and Settings, History, and Bookmarks have been redesigned. Chrome will now ask for confirmation if you want to close all tabs from Tab Switcher to prevent accidents, and individual tabs can be shared, bookmarked and added to a tab list from Tab Switcher.

Chrome can be downloaded from the iOS App Store for free. [Direct Link]
