How Google Chrome's New Privacy Feature Can Protect Your Online Privacy
Advertisements

Google Chrome has added a new feature to protect your privacy. This feature prevents websites from tracking you across different websites. It does this by disabling third-party cookies.

Third-party cookies are small files that websites can store on your device. They are used to track your browsing activity and show you personalized ads.

Google Chrome will start rolling out this feature to a small number of users in January 2024. The company plans to make it available to all users by the end of the year.

This is a significant change for Google Chrome. It is the first major browser to disable third-party cookies by default.

Google says that if a site doesn’t work without third-party cookies and Chrome notices that you are having trouble, then we will give you the option to temporarily re-enable third-party cookies for that website.

Google says that it is working to make the internet more private, but from the perspective of many websites, cookies are an important part of how they sell ads.

Cookies are small files that websites can store on your device. They can be used to track your browsing activity, including:
The pages you visit
The links you click
The products you view
Your location

Cookies can also be used to target you with ads. For example, if you visit a website for shoes, you may see ads for shoes on other websites later.
