We investigate whether the QCD crossover gets stronger as the chemical potential is increased. To this end, we study the chiral condensate and susceptibility in a finite volume scaling study at zero and small chemical potentials. We achieve this by extrapolating these quantities from imaginary $\mu_B$ maintaining strangeness neutrality. We also extrapolate low order fluctuations of conserved charges in various volumes and explore the range of validity of the ideal hadron resonance gas model at finite density.
