You can improve your browsing experience with privacy settings. For example, when you visit a web page, Chromium can use a web service to automatically load pages based on the page’s links.

Most of these settings are turned on by default, but you can choose which you'd like to turn on or off.

  1. Open Chromium.
  2. At the top right, click More img img Settings.
  3. Under "Privacy and security," choose what settings to turn off.
    • To control how Chromium handles content and permissions for a site, click Site settings.
    • To delete information from your browsing activity, like your history, cookies, or saved passwords, click Clear browsing data.
    • To control how Chromium handles cookies and tracking, click Cookies and other site data.
    • To manage safe browsing and protection, click Security.

Learn about each privacy option from the list below:

  • Preload pages for faster browsing and searching: Browsers use an IP address to load a webpage. When you visit a webpage, Chromium can look up the IP addresses of all the page's links and load the ones you might navigate to next. If you turn this setting on, websites and any embedded content that are preloaded can set and read their own cookies as if you had visited them, even if you don't.
  • Send a "Do Not Track" request with your browsing traffic: You can include a "Do Not Track" request with your browsing traffic. However, many websites will still collect and use your browsing data to improve security, provide content, services, ads and recommendations on their websites, and generate reporting statistics.
