The Privacy Guide, Google says, has been built at the GSEC or the Google Safety Engineering Center. In the blog, Chrome Product Manager Audrey An adds the guided tour will help users learn the benefits of the privacy features in Chrome. But more importantly, it will help them unravel the potential “implications” and “trade-offs” when they are turned off. The Privacy Guide will take users through the pros and cons of settings such as cookies, history synchronization across devices, Safe Browsing, and the “Make searching and browsing better” option that sends Google a list of all the websites you ever visit.
While the Privacy Guide is currently only making its way to Chrome Desktop, we can expect it to be added to other Google products, including Chrome for mobile and the privacy dashboard in the Google app, though there’s currently no timeline for those product updates.
