APPLE and Google have worked together to provide iPhone users with a sneaky hack that hides their internet browsing.
It keeps web history and tabs completely locked away.
But this can only be done using Google's Incognito mode.
Incognito mode doesn't keep a record of the websites users have visited or the cookies associated with those sites.
But Apple iPhone users can ramp up their privacy with this key trick.
How do I turn it on?
To turn on the feature, iPhone owners must first open Google Chrome.

The trick only works on Google Chrome, and isn't compatible with Apple's in-built Safari.
Users should then hit the three-dot icon in the bottom right corner, where a menu will appear.
Swipe left on the menu list and hit Settings > Privacy & Security > tap the toggle for Lock Incognito tabs when you close Chrome.
Then click Enable in the confirmation dialogue box, and hit Done.

This means that all the tabs opened under Incognito mode will be locked behind a password or biometrics, such as finger price or face ID.
As soon as users exit Google Chrome, their Incognito tabs will be unviewable without the password.
The trick works on iPhones both old and new – and even iPads.
Users will be able to keep their Incognito tabs hidden whether they're on an iPhone 6 or iPhone 14.
