Chrome to have more intuitive privacy and security controls

Google have started rolling out new tools and a redesign of Chrome’s privacy and security settings on desktop, to help you control your safety on the web.

With new design it will be easier to:

  • manage cookies,
  • find the most sensitive website permissions in Site Settings,
  • control what data is stored in Google Account and made available across all your devices,
  • clear browsing data as “Clear browsing data” option moved to top of Privacy & Security section.

With our new safety check in settings, you can quickly confirm the safety of your experience in Chrome. Enhanced Safe Browsing gives you more proactive and tailored protections from phishing, malware and other web-based threats. If you’re signed in to Chrome, then Chrome and other Google apps you use (Gmail, Drive, etc.) will further protect you based on a holistic view of threats you encounter on the web and attacks against your Google Account.

Google is also launching Secure DNS, a feature designed to improve your security and privacy while browsing the web.
