Google has decided to take advantage of Face ID to offer even greater protection for your incognito tabs in Chrome on iOS.

As The Verge reports, the latest Chrome Beta for iOS (Version 89.4389.48) includes the option to secure incognito tabs with Apple’s Face ID biometric security. The feature can be turned on in Settings > Privacy > Lock Incognito tabs when you close Chrome.

Once enabled, your incognito tabs will be blurred the next time the Chrome app is opened. To make them visible again, simply allow Face ID to verify it’s you and not someone with access to your device being curious. If your iDevice, be it an iPhone or iPad, is an older model without access to Face ID, Google is also going to support Touch ID to offer a similar level of extra security.

The fact this feature has made it into a beta release means Google won’t keep iOS Chrome users waiting too much longer before it’s rolled out as a feature. That’s most likely to happen next month when Chrome 89 is expected to release for Apple’s mobile OS.
