Some extensions, such as the RSS reader, don't install icons, while others add choices to the browser's options dialog. You may not use the Services if you do not accept the Terms. For example, you may want to run some tests against a real web page, create a PDF of it, or just inspect how the browser renders an URL. Archived from the original on April 27, Retrieved October 5, Sublicensee agrees that a breach of this Agreement may compromise the Content Protection Functions of the Adobe Software and may cause unique and lasting harm to the interests of Adobe and owners of digital content that rely on such Content Protection Functions, and that monetary damages may be inadequate to compensate fully for such harm.

Google Chrome Privacy Notice

This allows those Google web services to update their UI accordingly. If you are using a managed device, your system admin may disable the sign in feature or require that data be deleted when you disconnect your account. Google uses your personal synchronized data to provide you a consistent browsing experience across your devices, and to customize features in Chrome. You can manage your synchronized history by going to chrome: You can change your preference any time, and manage individual activities associated with your Google account.

The paragraph above describes the use of your personal browsing history. Google also uses aggregated and anonymized synchronized browsing data to improve other Google products and services. For example, we use this information to improve Google Search by helping to detect mobile friendly pages, pages which have stopped serving content, and downloads of malware.

If you would like to use Google's cloud to store and sync your Chrome data without allowing any personalized and aggregated use by Google as described in the previous paragraphs, you can choose to encrypt all of your synced data with a sync passphrase.

Chrome may help you sign in with credentials you've saved in Android apps on websites that are associated with the respective apps. Likewise, credentials you've saved for websites can be used to help you sign into related Android apps. You can view the credentials you've saved in Chrome and Android by visiting passwords. If you've saved credentials for Android applications, Chrome periodically sends a cookieless request to Google to get an updated list of websites that are associated with those applications.

To stop websites and Android apps from automatically signing in using credentials you previously saved, you can turn off Auto Sign-In on passwords. For more details see this article.

You can read more in the Usage statistics and crash reports section of this Whitepaper. Google Chrome has a form autofill feature that helps you fill out forms on the web more quickly.

If Autofill is enabled and you encounter a web page containing a form, Chrome sends some information about that form to Google. This information helps Chrome match up your locally stored Autofill data with the contents of the form, and it also helps to improve the quality of form-filling over time. If Autofill is enabled when you submit a form, Chrome sends the data types you actually used in the form. This information helps Chrome improve its guesses over time.

The actual text you typed into the form is not sent to Google. Chrome will never store credit card information without explicit confirmation. If you scan your credit card using a phone camera, the recognition is performed locally. Chrome may help you sign in to websites with credentials you've saved to Chrome's password manager or Google Smart Lock by autofilling sign-in forms, by offering you an account picker, or by automatically signing you in.

If you enable password management , the same kind of data about forms as described above is sent to Google to interpret password forms correctly and enable Chrome to offer password generation that meets site-specific requirements. If you are signed into Chrome and syncing credit cards and addresses with Google Pay, Chrome will offer to save your credit cards and related billing addresses to Google Pay and on your local device.

If integration with Google Pay is disabled, credit cards will be saved locally but will not be synced. If integration with Google Pay is enabled, Chrome may offer to autofill forms with credit card data stored in your Google Pay account.

The cards from your Google Pay account not already saved locally are masked until you provide the correct CVV code. When providing your CVV code for verification, you can choose to store the credit card locally as part of your Chrome Autofill data. If you choose not to store the card locally, you will be prompted for your CVV code each time you use the card. If you use a card from Google Pay, Chrome will collect information about your computer and share it with Google Pay to prevent fraudulent use of your card.

When you delete a credit card that's also saved in your Google Pay account, you will be redirected to the Google Pay to complete the deletion. After your card has been deleted from your Google Pay account, Chrome will automatically remove that card from your Autofill suggestions.

Chrome also supports the PaymentRequest API by allowing you to pay for purchases with credit cards from Autofill, Google Pay, and other payment apps already installed on your device.

Google Pay and other payment apps are only available on an Android device. PaymentRequest allows the merchant to request the following information: Information is not shared with the merchant until you agree. Google Chrome supports the Geolocation API , which provides access to fine-grained user location information with your consent.

By default, Chrome will request your permission when a web page asks for your location information, and does not send any location information to the web page unless you explicitly consent.

Furthermore, whenever you are on a web page which is using your location information, Chrome will display a location icon on the right side of the omnibox. You can click on this icon in order to find out more information or manage location settings. You can also configure exceptions for specific web sites. In the Android version of Chrome, your default search engine automatically receives your location when you conduct a search. On the iOS version of Chrome, by default your location is sent to Google if you conduct a search from the omnibox.

Read more about how your default search engine handles geolocation and how to manage your settings in the Omnibox section of the whitepaper. If you do choose to share your location with a web site, Chrome will send local network information to Google also used by other browsers such as Mozilla Firefox in order to estimate your location.

The requests are logged, and aggregated and anonymized before being used to operate, support, and improve the overall quality of Google Chrome and Google Location Services. It uses Google's servers to perform the conversion. Using the feature sends an audio recording to Google audio data is not sent directly to the page itself , along with the domain of the website using the API, your default browser language and the language settings of the website.

If you opt in to the feature, Chrome OS listens for you to say "Ok Google" and sends the audio of the next thing you say, plus a few seconds before, to Google. Detection of the phrase "Ok Google" is performed locally on your computer, and the audio is only sent to Google after it detects "Ok Google". You can enable or disable this feature in Google Assistant Settings. Enabling this feature in Chrome Settings will cause Chrome to listen whenever the screen is unlocked.

On Chrome OS devices with a local audio processor, the device also listens when the device is asleep. Once the audio has been converted to text, a search with that text is submitted to Google. The Google Cloud Print feature allows you to print documents from your browser over the Internet.

You do not need a direct connection between the machine that executes Chrome and your printer. You can manage your printers and print jobs on the Google Cloud Print website.

Chrome stores locally a list of expected SSL certificate information for a variety of high-value websites, in an effort to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks. For Google websites and other websites that choose to opt in, Chrome will report a possible attack or misconfiguration.

Chrome sends these reports only for certificate chains that use a public root of trust. Chrome also allows users to choose to send information that helps Google improve SSL warnings and error pages. You can opt in to this feature by checking the box on any SSL error page. While you are opted in, each time you see an SSL error page, a report will be sent to Google's security team.

The report contains the SSL certificate chain, the server's hostname, the local time, and relevant details about the validation error and SSL error page type.

Because Chrome sends these reports for all certificate chains, even those that chain to a private root of trust, these chains can contain personally identifiable information. Chrome's Token Binding feature allows a server to validate in a strong way that new HTTPS sessions originate from the same client as a previous session.

This assertion mitigates the risk of session theft because cookies can be cryptographically tied to a particular Token Binding ID. This feature makes it significantly more difficult to convert stolen cookies into stolen sessions.

A Token Binding ID created for one server will be shared with another server only if the original server requests it to be shared. Note that Token Bindings are not used for requests that block cookies. For more technical details and background information, visit browserauth. Users can install external apps and extensions for the desktop versions of Chrome to add features to or customize their Chrome browsers.

Installing an application or extension from the Chrome Web Store directly or via an inline installation flow on a third-party site involves a request to the Chrome Web Store for details about the application. The store uses this information to recommend applications to you in the future, and in aggregate to evaluate application popularity and usage. As noted above, applications and extensions are updated via Google Update. As they're more deeply integrated into Chrome, applications and extensions that you choose to install can request access to additional capabilities, enabling functionality that doesn't make sense on the web at large: These additional permissions may change the way your data is collected and shared, as extensions and applications might have access to data regarding the websites you visit, and might be capable of monitoring or modifying your interactions with the web.

When installing an application or extension, Chrome may first warn you about certain capabilities. Please do take the time to read and evaluate this warning before proceeding with the installation.

Note also that interactions with and data collected by these third-party applications and extensions are governed by their own privacy policies, not Google's privacy policy. The developer may end-to-end encrypt the message data, or may send it in a form such that Google servers process it as plain text.

Websites you visit in Incognito mode are not allowed to send you push messages and therefore cannot get a registration token. When you uninstall an app or extension, revoke the notification permission for a website, or clear cookies for a permitted website, its registration token is revoked and will not be reused, even if the same app or extension is re-installed or the same website is re-visited. Registration tokens used by Chrome components such as Sync are revoked once they are no longer in use for example, when the user disables Sync.

The registration tokens that are passed to entities contain an encrypted device ID, which is used for routing the messages. Google can decrypt the device ID, but other entities cannot, and the encryption is designed so that two registration tokens for the same device ID cannot be correlated.

On Android, the lifetime of the device ID is governed by the operating system and is independent of Chrome. Any messages routed to registration tokens containing a revoked device ID will not be delivered.

A Custom Tab may look different from a regular Chrome tab, for example it may have app-specified visual style, and the absence of an editable URL bar. Despite the different visual style a Custom Tab may have, the data sent and received in the Custom Tab, such as cookies, saved passwords and browsing history function the same way they do in a normal Chrome tab. The Custom Tab is an app-customized view using the same underlying user profile.

If you tap on such a button, the address of the current website is shared with the application. An application can request Chrome to pre-render a given URL in the background. This allows Chrome to show you a pre-loaded site instantly when you open it from the app. At the same time it allows an application to set cookies in your browser in the background. To disable pre-rendering, you can uncheck "Prefetch page resources" in the privacy settings. Chrome reloads the tabs you had open and persists session information to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

This feature effectively extends a browsing session across restarts. In this mode, session cookies are no longer deleted when the browser closes; instead, they remain available on restart to keep you logged into your favorite sites. On desktop versions of Chrome, this feature can be enabled or disabled in Chrome settings.

On Chrome OS, it is enabled by default. On OS X, when you restart your device, a checkbox in the OS confirmation dialog asks you whether you want to re-open applications and windows after restart. If you check this box, Chrome restores tabs and windows, as well as the session cookies, even if you have disabled "Continue where you left off" on Chrome. A list of field trials that are currently active on your installation of Chrome will be included in all requests sent to Google.

This Chrome-Variations header X-Client-Data will not contain any personally identifiable information, and will only describe the state of the installation of Chrome itself, including active variations, as well as server-side experiments that may affect the installation. The variations active for a given installation are determined by a seed number which is randomly selected on first run.

If usage statistics and crash reports are disabled, this number is chosen between 0 and 13 bits of entropy. Experiments may be further limited by country determined by your IP address , operating system, Chrome version and other parameters.

The header will not be sent with system traffic such as the geolocation, metrics or device management services. The effect of Do Not Track depends on whether a website responds to the request, and how the request is interpreted. For example, some websites may respond to this request by showing you ads that aren't based on other websites you've visited.

Many websites will still collect and use your browsing data - for example, to improve security; to provide content, services, ads and recommendations on their websites; and to generate reporting statistics.

If you grant this permission, the plugin is granted unsandboxed access. This allows content providers to offer you access to DRM protected content like videos or music but may have security and privacy implications, so consider carefully whether you trust a plugin or website with this privilege. Some websites encrypt media to protect against unauthorized access and copying. When users play media from these sites, they typically log into the site, which authenticates the user, and then digital rights management negotiates a key exchange for the decryption and playback of the media.

The implementation of that API is tightly coupled with the browser to protect user privacy and security, through Content Decryption Modules CDM , which are provided by digital rights management solutions such as Google Widevine or Microsoft PlayReady. When a user asks Chrome to play encrypted HTML5 media for example, watching a movie on Google Play Movies , Chrome will generate a request for a license to decrypt that media.

This license request contains an automatically generated request ID, which is created by the Content Decryption Module, as well as proof that the CDM is legitimate. After generation, the license request is typically sent to a license server managed by either the content website or Google. Neither the license request, the proof, nor the request ID include any personally identifying information. As part of the license request, Chrome also generates a unique session ID which does not contain personally identifying information.

This session ID is sent to the license server, and when the server returns a license the session ID is used to decrypt the media. The session ID may be stored locally even after the site has been closed. The license may also be stored locally for offline consumption of protected content on platforms that support this such as Android and Chrome OS.

When returning a license, the site license server may include a client ID, generated by the site. This client ID is unique to the user and the site, it is not shared between sites. If provided, the client ID is included by Chrome in subsequent license requests to that site. On Chrome OS, the website may additionally request verification that the device is eligible to play HD or other high quality content known as Verified Access.

In this case, Google creates a certificate using a unique hardware identifier for the device. This hardware ID identifies the device, but does not identify the user. Before Chrome sends this hardware ID to Google, the user is prompted asking permission to do so.

If the user agrees, Google receives the hardware ID and generates a certificate verifying the device for the requested site. The certificate does not include the hardware ID or any other information that could permanently identify the device. In order to give you access to licensed music, the Google Play Music app can retrieve a device identifier that is derived from your hard drive partitions or, on a Chrome OS or Linux installation, from a unique file on your disk.

This identifier can be reset by reinstalling your operating system. When you sign into a Chrome OS device, Chrome on Android, or a desktop Chrome profile with an account associated with a Google Apps domain, Chrome checks whether the domain has configured enterprise policies. If so, the Chrome OS user session or Chrome profile is assigned a unique ID, and registered as belonging to that domain. Any configured policies are applied to the profile. In order to revoke the registration, you'll need to remove the Chrome OS user profile, sign out of Chrome on Android, or remove the desktop profile.

This will enforce enterprise policies for the entire device, such as providing shared network configurations and restricting access to developer mode. When a Chrome OS device is enrolled to a domain, then a unique device ID is registered to the device.

In order to revoke the registration, the admin will need to wipe the entire Chrome OS device. Registered profiles and devices check for policy changes periodically every 3 hours by default.

In some cases, the server pushes policy changes to the client without waiting for Chrome's periodic check. Unregistered profiles check whether a policy has been turned on for their domain each time Chrome starts up. The policy list contains details about the types of configurations that are available via Cloud Policy.

This option reduces the amount of data downloaded, and protects you against malware and phishing via the Safe Browsing service. You can find more information about the data compression benefits on the Chromium blog. These connections are not routed through Google's servers. Cookies and If-None-Match headers are stripped from the logs. Additionally, the content of proxied pages is also cached but not logged. The logs are not associated with your Google Account, and the entire log entry is removed within 6 months.

These logs are also governed by standard Google search logging policies. Google uses the logged and cached data to improve both Data Saver and Safe Browsing; for example, more effective optimizations can be uncovered by analyzing timing data for pages loaded through the proxy service, and malware can be detected more rapidly by analyzing response data in realtime.

The Data Saver service is a transparent proxy, not an anonymization service. By default, the connection between the browser and the Data Saver proxy is over an encrypted channel. However, a network administrator can disable the use of an encrypted channel to Data Saver.

You can access the browsing activity of your supervised users at chrome. Chrome for Android offers features to be used when signed in with a kid's Google Account and automatically signs in a kid's account if they've signed into the Android device.

You can read about how Sync data is used in the Sign in section of this Whitepaper. Browsing history can still be removed in the Chrome section of the Google Dashboard.

Parents can go to chrome. Incognito mode in Chrome is a temporary browsing mode. The browsing history and cookies are deleted only once you have closed the last incognito window. Incognito mode cannot make you invisible on the internet.

Websites that you navigate to may record your visits. Browsing as a Guest in Chrome allows you to use somebody else's computer without modifying their profile. For example, no bookmarks or passwords get stored on their computer. Note that Guest mode does not protect you for example, if the computer you are using is infected by a keylogger that records what you type.

While browsing in a standard i. This information is only sent to Apple devices that are paired with your iOS device, and the data is encrypted in transit. Chrome support for this feature can be disabled in Chrome settings. This mitigates the risk of various kinds of man-in-the-middle attacks in which websites try to steal your password and use it later. To prevent abuse, a website is required to be delivered over a secure connection HTTPS , and to register the security key before it can be used for identification.

Once a website is registered with a specific security key, that security key will provide a persistent identifier, regardless of which computer it is plugged into, or whether you're in incognito or guest mode, but you must physically interact with the security key to give a website access to an identifier by, for example, touching it, or plugging it in.

The Physical Web lets you see a list of URLs being broadcast by objects in the environment around you. For each URL, the PWS obtains the title of the web page, filters out unsafe results, and returns a ranking based on non-personalized signals about the quality and relevance of the web page. Users will need to turn on Bluetooth to use the feature. If Android users have location settings enabled on both their device and in Chrome, they will receive a notification the first time they are near a beacon that will give them the option to turn on the Physical Web feature.

Users can also enable or disable the feature in the Privacy settings. Once a user enables the feature, Chrome scans for nearby devices for a few seconds each time the user unlocks the mobile device in use and sends them to the PWS in order to obtain more information about the beacon. The user receives a silent notification when Chrome finds a nearby URL.

On iOS devices, users can enable or disable the feature in the Privacy settings or by adding the Chrome widget to their Today view in the notification center. Additionally, the feature is automatically enabled for users who have location enabled on their device, granted Chrome the location permission, and have granted Google the geolocation permission.

Chrome scans for nearby devices whenever it is open in the foreground. When Chrome finds nearby URLs, users will see them as omnibox suggestions. Additionally, Chrome scans for nearby devices for a few seconds when the Today widget is displayed in the notification center.

Chrome does not let any page communicate with a device unless you explicitly consent. When a web page asks to pair with a device, Chrome will ask you to choose which device the web page should access, if any. Selecting a device for one page does not give other pages access to the device you have chosen, and does not allow that page to access other devices. Currently, permission for a page to communicate with a device is usually revoked when the page is reloaded, and is always revoked when Chrome is restarted.

The data collection and usage described in this section is handled by Android and governed by the Google Privacy Policy.

If the Android Backup Service is enabled on your device, some of your Chrome preferences will be saved and stored on Google servers. For other Android devices, you may be able to find help by looking up your device on this page. When setting up a new Android device, you may request that it copies the preferences from a previously set up device.

If you do so, Android may restore backed up Chrome preferences when Chrome is first installed. This will only happen if automatic restore is enabled and the device is signed into the account that Chrome was signed into when the backup was made.

Google Chrome Privacy Whitepaper Last modified: September 4, Current as of Chrome Redesigned Sync and Google service settings In version 69, we will begin rolling out a new structure for Chrome settings for a small population of users. Network predictions Chrome uses a prediction service to load pages more quickly. Chrome supports four types of prefetching: Chrome prefetching - can be initiated by Chrome itself whenever it detects a search query typed in the omnibox or a likely beginning of a URL you type often Webpage prefetching - requested by one web page to prefetch another AMP prefetching - can be requested only by the Google Search App on Android to prefetch several accelerated mobile pages AMP articles and display them later in a Chrome Custom Tab CustomTabs prefetching - any Android app can request to prefetch several URLs to speed up displaying them later in a Chrome Custom Tab Controlling the feature.

Google search locale If Google is set as your default search engine, Chrome will try to determine the most appropriate locale for Google search queries conducted from the omnibox in order to give you relevant search results based on your location.

New Tab page The Chrome New Tab page may display suggestions for websites that you might want to visit. Safe Browsing protection Google Chrome includes an optional feature called "Safe Browsing" to help protect you against phishing, social engineering, malware, unwanted software , malicious ads, intrusive ads, and abusive websites or extensions.

Unwanted software protection The Windows version of Chrome is able to detect and remove certain types of software that violate Google's Unwanted Software Policy.

Navigation error tips Google Chrome can show tips to help guide you to the page you were trying to reach in cases where the web address cannot be found, a connection cannot be made, the server returns a very short under byte error message, or you've navigated to a parked domain. Software updates Desktop versions of Chrome and the Google Chrome Apps Launcher use Google Update to keep you up to date with the latest and most secure versions of software.

Network time On desktop platforms, Chrome uses network time to verify SSL certificates, which are valid only for a specified time. Counting installations In order to measure the success rate of Google Chrome downloads and installations of the Windows version of Google Chrome, a randomly-generated token is included with Google Chrome's installer. The extension allows you to set a specific time restriction on certain websites, with 10 minutes being the default option.

Heading over to Dictionary. Sidenotes is an excellent tool for jotting things down quickly as you peruse the Web. As its name implies, the extension launches a blank notepad in a sidebar alongside a website so that you can take notes without having to switch between apps or windows. Those notes are then saved to Dropbox so you can access them later. The extension will show you a new flash card each time you launch a new tab in Chrome, providing an opportunity to study as you go about your other daily tasks.

No one likes it when retailers spam your email with updates and newsletters, even if they do include coupons. Honey eliminates that annoyance by pulling up discount codes with the press of a button so you no longer have to sift through promotional emails. Once the extension is installed, simply hit the Honey button during checkout and a list of codes will appear alongside your shopping cart. Boomerang is a helpful tool for scheduling emails and keeping track of sent messages.

The extension gives you the option to send emails at a later time, with preset choices ranging from a few hours to a month. If you want to get more specific, you can set your own custom time and date as well. Tami Reiss, the CEO of the company behind the extension Cyrus Innovation, explained her motivation for creating the tool in a post on Medium. Closed tabs are easy to recover, too; just click the Tab Wrangler icon to see a list of closed sites.
