If you like to store all passwords on Chrome and use an iPhone to sign in to many apps, there will be good news from its app update. The new update of the browser for iOS (version M104) allows you to set Chrome as your Autofill provider. There’s also an “enhanced safe browsing” and Chrome Actions to the app for iOS and iPad OS users.
Fortunately, these features have already available for Android users, like the Password Manager, which uses data you’ve elected to store in the browser when you log into apps on your phone. Enhanced Safe Browsing can be activated manually in iOS and iPad OS to protect you from dangerous websites, and Chrome will prevent a third-party data breach that can steal your data and password.
According to Google’s blog post, they try to make some easier way for users when they want to discover new content or start a fresh search in Chrome for iOS when you’ve been away for a while. This feature can help users to start a new Search or quickly get back to their most frequently visited sites while still letting you locate your recent tabs. The company will roll out these features for Android users soon.
Those who rely on Chrome’s built-in translation tools might find the updated language identification model helpful. Google says this new on-device version will help you “accurately figure out the language of the page you’re visiting, and whether it needs to be translated to match your preferences.”
Meanwhile, Chrome Actions will make doing things like clearing your browsing data or opening an incognito tab easier on iOS. You won’t have to go into the three-dot menu to hunt for those options anymore — you can just type a search term for the setting into the URL bar. “Delete history,” for example, will bring you to the page to clear your browsing data. And if you were looking for info on that setting online, you’ll still see the suggested search results below the suggested Action.
Finally, Google also tweaked the three-dot menu “to be scannable and to highlight the most important destinations, such as your history, passwords, and settings. The company said “your most commonly used destinations will be available at the top of the menu” and actions like creating Bookmarks or adding stuff to Reading List will be located higher up in the vertical menu.
