INTERNET USERS ARE BECOMING MUCH MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR PRIVACY AND DATA.
Google Chrome, the most popular web browser, garners a lot of attention for its approach to privacy.
While Google has gotten much better at lifting the hood of Chrome, there is still more you can do yourself.
It’s also quite simple, thanks to downloadable extensions.
Google Chrome extensions for privacy protection
There are several widely used extensions available that will thwart trackers.
To begin, navigate to the Chrome Web Store.
Cookie Autodelete, uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, and HTTPS Everywhere are among the best, according to CNET.
Cookie AutoDelete, for example, claims to give you “control over your cookies.”
It deletes unwanted cookies from closed tabs while keeping the ones you want.
Meanwhile, Privacy Badger claims that it “learns to block invisible trackers automatically.”
It’s worth noting that Chrome extensions only work on the desktop version of Chrome; for mobile, you might want to try DuckDuckGo.
How to Disable Cookies in Chrome
Chrome also has its method for giving you more control over third-party cookies.
- All you need to do is go to Settings, then Privacy and security.
- Find Cookies and other site data under this heading.
- Then click the Block third-party cookies option.
Unfortunately, extensions are not available for mobile devices.
A Google Chrome hack can help you organize your tabs for a more efficient workflow.
