Users of mobile Chrome on Android will have the option to hide their anonymous tabs with biometric authentication. That is, to open them, you will need to use the fingerprint scanner, face recognition, or enter a password.

The ability to hide anonymous tabs using biometrics first appeared on Android in 2022 as an experimental feature, more than a year after Google began testing it for iPhone and iPad. Then it had to be activated separately in the engineering menu of the browser. Now it should become available to all users on Android, but not immediately. The company plans to gradually enable the new feature.

But you can check its availability right now by clicking on the menu with three dots in the upper right corner of Chrome. After that, you need to open “Settings”, then go to “Privacy and security”, there should be an option to block incognito tabs.
