8. April 2022 –
After the release of version 100 of Chrome, Google has now implemented a privacy guide in the browser, which has the task of guiding users step by step through the privacy and security settings.
On the occasion of the publication of the 100th anniversary version, Google has given the Chrome browser a privacy guide. As the company explains in a blog post, the Privacy Guide was developed at the Google Safety Engineering Center (GSEC) in Munich and is a step-by-step guide through some of the existing privacy and security settings in Chrome. The goal is to give users a tool to make and manage the right choice of privacy settings in one place. In this way, they should learn what each setting means and how it affects the use of the browser. First of all, the Privacy Guide, which will be rolled out soon, should contain settings for managing cookies, synchronizing history and secure browsing. Over time, however, Google wants to implement additional settings based on user feedback.
The Privacy Guide will be available in the “Privacy & Security” tab in Chrome’s settings starting with version 100. As Google further explains, you don’t have to complete the tour of the privacy settings all at once, since the progress is saved in the browser. (luc)
