Google Company provides new updates to Android’s Chrome. Users receive more freedom in managing permissions on every site they watch. It rolls out new security features that have to keep users safe from any suspicious websites. Apart from Android, Google extends its services for iOS, protecting users’ privacy.

Updates on Chrome Android

Chrome users on the Android platform will be more secure with the new updates. Google reveals new control of permissions you provide just by tapping the icon of the lock on the left side of the address bar at Chrome. With this feature, you can also control which website and content you want to see. The same feature you may have already seen on Windows Chrome and macOS laptops.

Users can now choose whether they want to share access to the location and their camera with the lock feature. Moreover, Google releases a new option on the Android platform, which is to “Forget” the website from your history in Chrome. One tap, and you clear the entire website’s data from your phone and cookies. You don’t have to clean your phone by entering Settings after that.

According to Google officials, these updates will be released on Chrome for the Android platform at first, but later will be provided for other platforms as well. With the new, improved privacy settings, Google offers a Site Isolation option for Android phones and tablets. It takes care of any malicious content on websites users open.

Google Updates on Chrome iOS

Chrome reveals the updates in the processing of images for the iOS mobile platform as well. It speeds up phishing detection and saves the batter. For iOS owners, Chrome has new biometric authentication in the Incognito service. With this feature, you can add Face ID, or Touch ID, or Passcode to Lock Incognito tabs, protecting the data, making the tabs invisible for anyone until you allow it.
