The V69 version previously released by Google Chrome is undoubtedly a very hot topic recently, and the user interface changes and address bar display adjustments have caused a lot of controversies.
The latest change is a strong incentive for privacy-conscious users: Google Chrome does not clear Google’s cookie files by default.
Previously, we have already mentioned that as long as users log in to Google any service using Google Chrome, they will automatically log in to the browser and synchronize the history.
Operation of Google Chrome:
The main reason for the controversy is that Google Chrome automatically uploads user history records, and Google can push certain ads based on historical records.
If the user wants to opt out of their logged-in Google account and tries to clear the cookies, then they will find that Google has modified the cleanup tool’s strategy.
When the user habitually clicks the cleanup button without carefully watching the prompts, the user can continue to track the user even after cleaning the Google countless times.
Because Google does not clean up its cookies by default, Google can continue to record user interest push certain ads through this type of file.
Does Google’s approach not violate GDPR?
Some users say that Google has violated the EU’s latest General Data Protection Regulations, which are mainly designed to protect user privacy.
But obviously, Google’s level of the company will not turn this low-level error, when you install Google Chrome has agreed to Google’s relevant agreement.
Secondly, Google is changing the cleaning strategy but has already marked it with text. Although the text marked is relatively small, it is also impossible to signal the user without seeing it.
Therefore, Google certainly does not take the risk of being punished for bankruptcy to collect information when the user is unknown, so the user will carefully look at the agreement next time.
