Last week, the official version of Chrome 79 released a download update for desktop and mobile platform users, which was supposed to be a happy thing, but it came as a surprise. Some Android users complained that some other apps installed on the machine had data loss that was emptied after installing Chrome 79.
After inspection, Chrome typically takes over system permissions and becomes the default webView rendering component. In the v79 version, the developer updated the location where the web data was stored, but the data in the original local storage and webSQL was not migrated correctly. In the current Android ecosystem, a few apps are almost entirely run on webView, such as Twitter Lite, many community APPS, and so on.
In fact, the data for these APPS is not deleted, but is inaccessible to the current storage location.
This serious BUG, which the Chromium BUG Tracker labels as a catastrophic problem, has prompted Google to stop pushing Chrome 79.
Chrome 79 is known to enhance the protection of phishing.
