Google Chrome sees a new update and expansion for its Privacy Sandbox initiative that will bring more security for all users, as well as eliminate the third-party cookies in their use.

Google announced via its official blog that it is expanding the Privacy Sandbox feature’s testing by August, and it will bring more of the offers and experience to more users in the coming month. The initiative will release to developers and collaborators who are under the program and have already received feedback regarding the new feature. 

The testing will help gather more feedback and suggestions regarding the experience, and it will soon support the developers to bring more of what it needs before its actual release. 

The cookies initiative will help avoid gathering information from the user, and it will help protect their identities and data online, a path that Google is taking now.

What will the Privacy Sandbox Expansion Bring? 

The Mountain View company said that all of the efforts in the Privacy Sandbox tests would all matter to its release in Q3 2023 for all Chrome users. Its target date will provide the world with a more secure Chrome that will no longer need to store and collect cookies from the users, with the current expansion to test more from developers and partners. 

Google’s Privacy Sandbox Efforts

Google’s Privacy Sandbox effort is something that it aims to introduce to the world via its Chrome web browser, which would help in offering more security to users in the coming years. Supposedly, it would be released in 2021 or 2022, but its previous announcement last year said it needed more time to work on this feature, hence its delay to 2023.

Nevertheless, Google’s effort to bring more privacy and avoid using third-party cookies for the browsing experience would help protect more of the browser’s information from its users. 

It would not be exclusive for the PC or computer’s Chrome browsers only, as Google said that it is also bringing the Privacy Sandbox features for Android users. Google’s efforts towards security bring one for both the mobile and web versions of Chrome. 

It seems that Google’s new security initiative is shaping up for the world to experience, and it will bring many features to the public soon. There are already those that experience this through the beta testing experience for the Privacy Sandbox, and the Internet company is looking to gather data that would help in improving for its actual release.
