Google is testing a new feature for Chrome for iOS as a security measure, with which incognito tabs can be locked behind Face ID in iOS devices. Even though Apple has its own face recognition system for its recent devices, some apps consider adding extra security by offering their own Face ID support.

Google Chrome’s Face ID support for iOS is on its way too, and is likely to roll out in the coming months. The feature is still in its early testing stage and will be supported in the latest Chrome 89 beta on iOS. For older devices, Google is also providing support for Touch ID.
While Chrome 89 is expected to be officially released some time in early March, it isn’t certain whether the Face ID security feature will be ready by then.
