The lock screen also displays the time and local weather and gives you easy access to media controls so you can pause or play a song. You will find your WiFi and battery status in the lower right corner and the option to log out of your account if you wish. You activate the feature by digging into Chrome OS’s settings menu and heading to the Personalization section. Once activated, it will turn on when the operating system detects that your device has been inactive for some time.
The update also introduces a feature that allows you to use your PIN or fingerprint, instead of a password, to sign in to websites that support the WebAuthn Standard. The good thing here is that you can use your PIN or fingerprint as a form of two-factor authentication on websites where you have enabled the extra security measure. Some platforms that support the WebAuthn standard include Dropbox and GitHub. You can expect Chrome OS 88 to roll out to your device in the next few days.
