One of the downsides when browsing the Web is the sharing of data with those sites that we are visiting. Chrome has a handful of awesome tools that can help minimize those data we’re sharing with the world, and it also features an oft-forgotten tool of its own to provide you more control over what information a website can collect. This article will show you how easy it is to use, and that it doesn’t require plugins or setup.
STEP 1: Launch your Chrome browser, then visit any website that comes to your mind.
STEP 2: On the browser’s address bar, click the information icon (the letter i) to bring up the control menu.
NOTE: Here you can control what information is being shared as well as verifying whether or not the site is on a secure (https) connection.
STEP 3: Next, click the Cookies link to see what services are tracking you.
STEP 4: If you want to delete a tracking cookie, just click it, then click the Block or Remove button.
NOTE: Block is a more permanent solution, while the Remove option will place the cookie again once you revisit the site.
STEP 5: Once you’re done, click the Close button.
STEP 6: To set permissions, simply click the up or down arrow next to each of the settings and choose the permission you prefer.
