Google shared some tips on keeping Chrome safe on Data Privacy Day tomorrow, January 28. It also reveals that Chrome for Android is getting a new feature that will allow you to lock incognito tabs when you leave the app.
A new privacy setting lets you use your screen lock to unlock those tags, whether it’s a biometric, PIN, or pattern.

This function is very simple. When you open Chrome and you want to use an incognito tab when your phone is locked, you’ll be prompted to use your preferred screen unlock method and verify that you have access. The public tab will remain publicly available.
This feature is useful for devices that are used by multiple people, where one person does not want the others to know what is being viewed. This is the closest Chrome for Android has come to offering different profiles for different users.
Google says the feature is still rolling out, so some users may have to wait a little longer to get it.
