NEW DELHI: Tech giant Google has started rolling out the new Privacy Screen feature for Google Drive on iOS and iPadOS. This new feature allows users to use Face ID or Touch ID authentication whenever anyone tries to open your app on your device. This new feature enables users to keep their documents and sensitive information safe.

Moreover, users can choose to activate the Privacy Screen feature immediately after they switch to another app. After this whenever the user will return to Google Drive then they will be greeted by the Face ID or Touch ID popup. However, if you are multitasking on your device then you can delay this popup by 10 seconds, 1 minute, or 10 minutes.

As reported by The Verge, the Privacy Screen feature from Google is completely foolproof. The company, however, notifies the user that this feature might not protect your Drive notifications.


According to Digital Trends, Google first introduced the feature last month. But it the company made it widely available starting today.
