With frequent updates over the past few months, Google has introduced a number of updates around Chrome, the two main themes of efficiency and user experience. The Chromium team has redesigned the browser’s privacy settings, according to a new report by techDows, amedia outlet. Only the two most commonly used options are displayed in the Privacy and Security Settings card in Chrome 80 settings, and then partially integrate them into the “More” secondary page.
New privacy and security settings
On chrome 80’s new settings page, only “Clear Browsing Data” and “Site Settings” are two options, while the other settings options are placed on the “More” secondary pages, including sync and Google services, allowing to log in to Chrome, sending Do Not Track requests, checking payment methods, Preload pages, management certificates, and more. As described in the logo description, the motivation for this change is to “make it (the privacy settings card) more prominent and easy to use.” “
Privacy and security settings currently in use
The new design privacy settings are now enabled by default in the Chrome 80 Beta version, and can be enabled in the Canary channel through the Flag of “Privacy Settings Redesign”.
