Google has added a useful feature to Chrome for iOS that allows you to quickly open external links from other apps in Incognito mode. It is particularly useful on shared devices. The default behavior loads links alongside other open tabs that share your cookies and account sign-ins. You are not logged in to anything by opening in Incognito mode.
Taping a link in an external app will first take you to a fullscreen prompt if you enable “Ask Open Links from Other Apps in Incognito” in Chrome Settings > Privacy and Security.
lists the URL you picked and provides instructions for trying to hide this browsing session from the history and “other users of this device.” Furthermore, you won’t be compelled to save the data you enter in the forms. Enabling this setting is useful for shared family iPads and signing in to other accounts.
The best thing about this feature is that it has no effect on in-Chrome browsing. Meanwhile, Chrome for iOS version 108 is now available:
- favicons will appear next to site credentials in Google Password Manager and credential provider extensions.
- Improvements in stability and performance.
Although Google has been working on Incognito Chrome Custom Tabs, this feature is not available on Android.
