The capability has been made available to Google Chrome users on Android after previously only being available to iOS users.

How to enable this feature

This feature can be activated by going to Chrome Settings > Privacy & security and turning on the “Lock incognito tabs when Chrome closes” toggle. Therefore, the user’s incognito session will be automatically locked the next time they close Chrome. You can use a biometric unlock, such as a fingerprint unlock, or a phone lock code to open an incognito tab.

Feature rollout has started

Since Google has just recently begun to roll out this functionality, even if you are using the most recent version, it’s conceivable that you won’t have access to the update. If so, you may enable the flag by typing “chrome://flags/#incognito-reauthentication-for-android” and instantly unlock the capability.
