Stay Safer Online With Chrome, Here Are 5 Tips

Photo Source: Androidheadlines - Chrome, which was first released in 2008, is a cross-platform web browser developed by Google.

As online risks increase, Chrome's "privacy by design" approach will keep you safer online.

Built-in features, such as Google Password Manager, make signing in secure and seamless across your devices and help catch compromised passwords.

Along with providing strong security default protections, Google makes privacy controls easy to find, understand and use in Chrome.

While many of these features are well-known, Chrome includes many privacy settings and security features that may be new to you.

Launching the Google Blog, here are 5 (five) ways to stay safer online with Chrome.

1. Need help? Browse the Privacy Guide

Chrome introduces the Privacy Guide and step by step key privacy and security controls in Chrome.

Those steps are to guide you through the privacy options when you enable history sync or select Enhanced Safe Browsing.

This is intended for faster and more proactive protection against malicious websites, downloads and extensions.

To access the Privacy Guide, simply click on the three dot menu in the top right corner of Chrome and select "Settings".

Then, navigate to the "Privacy and Security" tab. You will see a Privacy Guide option under "Clear Browsing Data".

2. More proactive Security Checks

We recommend that you regularly run Chrome's security check on desktop and mobile devices.

Safety Check will notify you if it detects compromised passwords or malicious extensions.

It also alerts you when there are updates to install and stays protected with the latest proactive protection.

To deepen its commitment to your online security, Chrome is expanding Security Checkup.

This Safety Checkup launches even more personalized recommendations and reminders.

Personalized recommendations and reminders of what you've previously shared with websites and find those controls in one place to revoke permissions and protect your privacy.

3. Clear your browsing data anytime

You can delete Chrome browsing data including history, cookies and cache, from a certain time or all at once.

If you want more granular control, you can delete items individually, from the pages you visit to the autofill entries.

Use the Chrome shortcut by typing, "clear browsing data" in Chrome's address bar.

4. Lock your incognito session when you leave Chrome

You can require biometric authentication when you resume an interrupted Incognito session. It is available for all Chrome users on iOS and currently rolling out for Android users.

Just go to Chrome Settings, click Privacy & Security, click Enable "Lock incognito tabs when you close Chrome".

5. Use Google Password Manager on iOS, Android and desktop

A strong, unique password is key to helping keep your information safe online.

That's why Google Password Manager can help you create, remember, and autofill passwords on your computer or phone.

It's built right into Chrome, and if you sync your passwords through a Google Account, you can use saved passwords in Chrome on your phone and laptop, and also in Android and iOS apps.

Here are five ways to stay safer online with Chrome. I hope this information is helpful. (*)
