Chrome for iOS has added the ability to take full-page screenshots and lock incognito tabs with Face ID or Touch ID

Points Highlighted:

  • This new feature is a step forwards to more secure browsing. With this option, you will be able to hide your Incognito tabs so they can be accessible only by you, locked with Face ID or Touch ID, or your iPhone passcode.

  • You can now lock Incognito tabs with Face ID or Touch ID

This way, if you leave Incognito tabs open in Chrome and come back, you will need to authenticate with your security method before you can access them or view them. To enable the new feature, you can go to Settings > Privacy > Lock Incognito tabs.

It works similarly to Safari. After taking a screenshot in Chrome and tapping to view it, you will see the “Full Page” tab to capture the entire page, alongside customization features, sharing, and saving options.

The second change, introduced with the update, is the possibility to take full-page screenshots of a webpage. Until now, this feature was available only if you were using the default Safari browser on your iPhone, and unavailable in Chrome.

Incognito tabs can now be locked with more security, and you can take a full page screenshot

Other changes brought by the update include a small redesign of Settings, History, and Bookmarks pages. Entries there now appear on rounded cards while no longer stretching across the screen edge-to-edge. On top of that, the browser now asks for confirmation before closing all tabs from the Tab Switcher. This feature helps prevent you from accidentally closing everything.

And last but not least, the Tab Switcher now lets you share and bookmark tabs to your reading list. You just need to long-press or hold the tab in question so the options will appear.

The new version of Chrome for iOS is now live for the public, and you can download it from the App Store.
