Google Chrome introduces step-by-step Privacy Guide settings

Google Chrome.

Google worked with its in-house Google Safety Engineering Centre (GSEC) to develop better privacy controls for web browsing.

Starting from version 100 of Google Chrome for desktops is a brand-new Privacy Guide panel inside the browser’s “Privacy and Security” tab.

According to Google’s announcement, the Privacy Guide option is a step-by-step, guided tour of privacy controls for Google Chrome. Instead of picking out your settings across your cookies, history sync, safe browsing, etc., Google opted to put all the features into one tour, and each step is explained to the user as they make their preferred selections.

The tour is also designed to be easy to start and continue. So, for example, if you’re halfway through the settings and have to resume at a later time, Privacy Guide can pick it up from where you left off.

Note: If you don’t have the Privacy Guide option even after updating your desktop’s Google Chrome to version 100, don’t fret. After updating, we didn’t have the feature, and Google did say the rollout will happen in the coming weeks.
