GOOGLE CHROME ACKNOWLEDGE PRIVACY ISSUES AFTER FEEDBACK
After receiving feedback on its latest release Chrome 69, Google made some changes to simplify the way Chrome manages sign-in and uses cookie authentication.
WHY THIS WAS DONE?
Google has made some changes to Chrome sign-in after receiving precious feedback from several users. As Google is one of the most trusted organizations and never lets their users down, they’ve took this initiative, so that every time user login, Chrome Sync doesn’t get enabled. Chrome users who want to sync their data such as browsing history, passwords, and bookmarks on other devices should turn on sync manually.
WHAT CHANGES ARE MADE?
Let us take a look at changes made in Google Chrome:
- To let users have more control over their experience, Google has added sign-in consistency. It will help and allows users to turn-off syncing web-based sign-in with browser-based sign-in. Users after disabling this feature will not be able to login into Chrome, even if they login into Google website.
- Google is also updating Chrome’s UI. This is done so that it becomes better for Google to communicate with user’s sync state. By this, Google will be clear about your sign-in state and whether you’re syncing data to your Google account or not.
- Google in its next Chrome version, that is Chrome 70, will change the way they handle clearing of cookies. In the current Chrome version, they let you to stay logged in even after cookies are deleted. But, in Chrome 70, this will be changed, so after deleting cookies, user will be signed out automatically.
On receiving feedback, Zach Koch, Chrome Product Manager, published a blog post, where he mentioned,
“We deeply appreciate all of the passionate users who have engaged with us on this. Chrome is a diverse, worldwide community, and we’re lucky to have users who care as much as you do. Keep the feedback coming.”
