Chrome is more than just a browser. By adding its own application launcher and Google Now to OS X, the software has become a small embedded operating system – a good or bad thing depending on whether or not you like Google’s services. A depth that also passes through a fairly complete profile manager.

A function to be activated manually allows you to mimic the behavior of an operating system even more: it is possible to lock your Chrome session with your Google password. To do this, type chrome://flags/#enable-new-profile-management in the address bar and then activate the new profile management system.

Protect Your Chrome Session With Your Google Password

On rebooting, a button appears in the top right corner of the browser. Clicking on it opens a small window with the user’s photo, name and a padlock. Clicking on this padlock locks the session. You need to type in the Google Account password to access the software’s features again. Alternatively, you can browse “as a guest”, which is the same as browsing incognito, since the history and other navigation data are not stored.

Session is locked

This function is very practical on a family computer where you don’t necessarily want the children (or parents) to have access to your profile and all the data linked to it (passwords, history, favourites…). If this system of new profiles has to be activated manually, it is because it is not yet finalized. It is therefore still subject to change and it is not known when Google will offer it by default.
