(Pictured) Chrome Settings Change: Greatly Optimize Privacy and Security

Google has recently made significant improvements to the privacy and security of Chrome browsers, based on keeping the user interface simple and efficient. In addition to making Chrome more granular about private content, Google has improved the management of extensions and the way cookies are handled in Incognito’s private browsing mode.

In chrome’s new settings, the new “You and Google” section replaces the previous “People” section, but retains all the sync control options. In this settings section, users can customize the categories of data that are shared to Google and saved to their Google Account, and what data can be synced to other devices you sign in to.

The “Clear Browsing Data” option has also become more prominent in the new settings, moving to the top of the Privacy and Security section. Abdel Karim Mardini, Google’s senior product manager, says this is because people have often deleted history recently.

The new version of the settings gives more granular control over the site’s access hardware, allowing users to determine where a given site can access content, cameras, microphones, and notifications based on their needs. There is also a recent access history for these permissions. Enhanced Safe Browsing now has the option to enable it, check ingress with the pages you’re viewing and downloads are safe and warns of potential hazards.

Similarly, Secure DNS will use DNS-over-HTTPS to encrypt DNS queries. This helps prevent you from eavesdropping on websites you visit or redirecting you to phishing sites. This option is enabled by default if your DNS service provider supports it. You can also change the DNS provider (or turn off Secure DNS) in your settings.

For Chrome extensions, the new version of Chrome offers a new way to manage it. Browser plug-ins can be listed in the Chrome toolbar drop-down menu. You can still pin plug-ins on the toolbar for easier access, and you can adjust what each plug-in can access.

History, form information or browser cookies are no longer saved in the Private Browsing Incognito mode. Google will now make Chrome block third-party cookies by default in every Incognito session.

Add a new control that looks like an eye on the new tab that will allow users to select websites where certain third-party cookies are enabled. Google says the feature will be the first to be available on the desktop version of Chrome and will be released to Android later.

Another big change in Google’s new Chrome browser is the addition of security screening options. This is a new feature added to the browser’s settings, and it will be a quick-to-ensure configuration that helps you detect malicious extensions, compromise passwords, and more.

When you run a security check, it automatically checks to see if you have the latest version of Chrome and if Safe Browsing is turned on. If any password saved by Chrome is compromised, it will also be flagged. It also provides instructions on how to change your password.

Finally, if any malicious extensions are installed, Chrome Security recognizes and prompts them to be removed.
