Once again, Google has rankled privacy-focused people with a product change that appears to limit users' options.
This update automatically signs users in if you use any other Google services. Green says the new update makes Chrome opt-out instead, reversing the decade-long policy obsolete.
In case you are one of those who want to continue using Chrome, but don't want Chrome to automatically log you in and sync your settings via your Google login, you can turn it off using the account-consistency Chrome flag. On the plus side, if you sign in to Chrome on a different computer, all your stuff - including extensions, bookmarks, browsing history and saved passwords - will show up, ready to use. With the massive amount of data that Google already has due to usage of maps and other apps linked to your Google account on your phone, adding browser data may spell trouble.
Chrome is among the most widely used browsers in the market. As a result, sharing all the information with Google is only one click away which can happen accidently at any point in time.
Before Chrome 69, this sync feature was already there for a long period. They could add an additional checkbox there to ask if a user doesn't want Google Cookies to be removed.
The Brave browser aims to "reset the web" by blocking advertisements by default and instead giving users the ability to opt-in to unobtrusive ads that are native to the user's browser, do not track them as they traverse the web, and - according to the company - provide publishers and content creators with a greater revenue share than they now receive. This allowed users to surf the web while logged into a Google account but not upload any Chrome browsing data to Google's servers, data that may be tied to their accounts. This essentially means that the in-browser account fetches your Google details on its own, to enable the "Sync" feature. Adrienne Porter Felt, a Google Chrome engineer, stepped in on Twitter to confirm the automatic-login change, but said that users still have to manually enable Sync.
We've learned that Android phones were sending location data to Google even when location history was disabled.
Eric Lawrence, a former Google employee who worked on Chrome but is now employed by rival Microsoft, said he doesn't see any reason to be alarmed. But there is also a change that seems like an assault on your privacy.
Up until Matt Green wrote about the new login requirements, Google had said nothing about it. While Google has been quick to respond and explain why these issues are occurring, they need to start giving control back to their users.
Sync is nothing new - it's been around for quite some time.
