How to customize your Chromebook’s lock screen

owned by Google released The latest version of Chrome OS with a few new features for Chromebook owners to try. If you own a Chromebook, your device should have the latest version now or soon.

First off, it can now work as a smart display (like Google’s Nest Hub Max) when you’re not actively using your Chromebook. Like the Nest Hub, it can act as a digital photo album and display pictures on the lock screen. You can choose a photo album for your screensaver or choose from a gallery of pre-loaded images.

You can now use the lock screen for other smart viewing tasks as well. For example, you can play and pause music and check the weather without unlocking the Chromebook.

To turn on the personalized lock screen feature, go to your Chrome OS settings and select Personalization > Screen Saver.

Another new addition is called Web Authentication or WebAuthn. This feature allows you to sign in to certain websites with the PIN or fingerprint you use to sign in to your Chromebook, instead of your password on those sites. You can also add WebAuthn as an additional layer of security for two-step verification. According to Google’s blog post, supported websites include Dropbox, GitHub, and Okta.

You don’t need to do anything special to use Web Authentication. When you visit a supported website, you are prompted to switch.
