Here’s a fun new feature for Chrome for Android: Fingerprint-protected incognito tabs. 9to5Google discovered the feature in Chrome stable channel 105, though you’ll have to dig deeper into settings to enable it at this point.
If you want to add a little more protection to your private browsing sessions, type “chrome://flags/#incognito-reauthentication-for-android” in the address bar and hit enter. After enabling the flag and restarting Chrome, you should see an option to “Block incognito tabs when I exit Chrome”. If you leave your incognito session and return, an “incognito unlock” screen will appear instead of your tabs, and you’ll be prompted to scan your fingerprint.
Chrome on iOS has had a biometric-backed incognito feature, called “Privacy Screen,” for a few years. However, this is the first time for Android. Chrome’s “flags” menu is technically for experiments and features in development, so it’s not guaranteed to become a user-friendly feature, but making it to the stable channel, plus the feature that already exists in iOS , It is a good signal.
