New! Fingerprint Unlock Feature Available on Incognito Tab of Chrome for Android

The Incognito tab is one of the things that the vast majority of people out there find to be the most helpful. This prohibits other people from viewing our online history or tracking our search terms. Chrome is said to have implemented support for fingerprint unlock in the Incognito tab, which is really exciting news for users who adore the Incognito mode. It is said that the new feature would offer the user increased levels of anonymity. However, in the event that the user locks their smartphone or navigates away to a different application while using the incognito tab, they will be needed to use their fingerprint in order to reopen the tab.

Fingerprint Unlock for Android

It was discovered a year ago that Google was working on a feature that would require the user’s fingerprint in order to access incognito tabs in Chrome for Android. Today, Google made the announcement that it will begin rolling out this functionality. After restarting the Android browser, all that is required of you to activate this feature, which was initially made available on Chrome for iOS in the early months of 2021, is to use your fingerprint to “Unlock Incognito.” You have the option while seeing the Incognito splash screen, to select “See other tabs,” which will bring up an overflow menu that allows you to close any open settings tabs or secret browsing tabs.

How to active this upgrade:

This function is not required, but it can be activated by heading to Chrome’s Settings and selecting the Privacy and security menu item. When you close Chrome, make sure that any open Incognito tabs are locked: Locking the screen will allow you to see any Incognito tabs that are currently open. In addition to verification, you can use your personal identification number (PIN) whenever you enable or disable a feature. When you exit Chrome, the splash screen will appear immediately. It can be handy (as long as the person receiving your phone does not know your passcode) when you give them your phone.

Google made the announcement today, in the context of Data Privacy Day, that the functionality is “currently rolling out to Android users.” In the next few days, a sizable portion of the population will get access to the most recent version of the software.
