How To Activate The More Secure Hidden Mode Of Google Chrome: Developers at Google had released the Google Chrome version 63 a few days ago. One of the key feature added in Chrome 63 was Strict Site Isolation. Well, this is something which is meant to add an extra layer of security compared to the long-time sandbox built into the Chrome.
When it comes to implementing the security measure, Google Chrome was one of the foremost browsers to adopt new security measures. The new feature Strict Site Isolation is mainly for companies that require maximum protection in their navigation.
The feature does some awesome things like whenever we open any content on a web page it is assigned to a new and dedicated process. That simply means that the webpage will no longer share memory or processes, creating an extra barrier between them.
Here’s how Google describes the latest Strict Site Isolation Feature:
“Google’s site isolation feature improves security for Chrome browser users. When you enable site isolation, content for each open website in the Chrome browser is always rendered in a dedicated process, isolated from other sites. This creates an additional security boundary between websites.”
Well, the feature is not enabled by default for users. The main reason behind this is that it “will increase memory usage by approximately 20%”
Here’s how you can enable the Strict Site Isolation Feature:
1) Open Google Chrome browser and then type “chrome://flags” and hit the Enter button.
2) Now find “Strict Site isolation” and then enable it.
3) Restart Google Chrome browser.
