For Android, Chrome has a New Feature for Incognito Tabs

Since Google updated Android, incognito tabs will remain hidden until your fingerprint is used to access them. This new function is comparable to the “Privacy Screen” feature available in Google apps for the iPhone, including Google Authenticator, Drive, Fi, and Google’s iOS app.

While iOS users may also use facial recognition to conceal their incognito tabs, the Android version of Chrome only supports authentication via fingerprint or lock screen PIN. The iOS privacy screen is likewise a regular feature, but Android users will have to wait, at least initially, to access the Chrome feature. Although it will be available, as of the writing of this article, it is only available as a hidden feature. 

Unlike some other upcoming features, if you have the Chrome version 105 update, you can test it on Chrome’s stable version.

To activate the experimental flag:

On your Android device, open Chrome. From the drop-down selection for “Enable device reauthentication for incognito,” choose “Enable.” You must enable this functionality in the app settings after restarting Chrome: To access privacy and security settings, select settings.
