Chrome itself does not save your browser history or any data you type into web forms in this mode. Google Chrome will not sync your private browsing history across your account, assuming you’re signed into Chrome.

9to5Google has shared all details about this ability. They mentioned that in Chrome 105’s stable channel, they found a new setting that allows them to lock incognito tabs and can be opened with the fingerprint.

When you have Incognito tabs open, exiting Chrome will instantly lock those pages behind fingerprint authentication.

Launching the browser to return to those tabs will show a gray screen with the Incognito logo at the center. Tapping “Unlock Incognito” opens the system fingerprint sheet to “Verify it’s you.” The ability to “Use PIN” is also available in the bottom-left corner.

Other available options include returning to regular tabs, while the overflow menu remains in its usual position to “Close Incognito tabs.” (It would probably be better for that to be placed behind the fingerprint lock.)

And the option of “Unlock Incognito,” there is also an option to use another tab, which might be related to using a normal tab or might be for a new Incognito tab section.

When it Will Be Rolled Out

Currently, there is no detail about whether it is coming to iOS or not, but we can confirm its arrival in android smartphones. And it is not likely to be coming very later.

This means it is coming very soon to the stable version of the Chrome browser, as it is already available in Chrome 105’s stable channel.

If you want to close the locked incognito tabs, you can do so using the ‘Close all incognito tabs’ notification. It is interesting to note that the feature was first spotted back in Chrome 94.

While Google is yet to roll out the feature, it can be easily enabled on recent Android versions by typing ‘chrome://flags/#incognito-reauthentication-for-android’ in the Chrome address bar and enabling the flag. But Google might enable the feature in a future release since the flag is already present in the stable Chrome channel.

The directory of this option is Settings > Privacy and security > Lock Incognito tabs, and you are probably thinking about which fingerprint it is going to use for open the locked Incognito tabs.

So it will detect the primarily selected fingerprint of the smartphone. Besides, there might also be an ability to unlock them with a PIN as the three dots given above.
