Choose your privacy settings

You can improve your browsing experience using web services. For example, Chrome can use a web service to automatically offer completions for search terms or website addresses that you type in the address bar.

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

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. At the bottom right, tap More More and then Settings Settings.
  3. Tap Privacy.
  4. Tap the feature that you want to update:
    • Under 'Other Devices', turn Handoff on or off. Handoff lets you switch between browsing on your mobile device and browsing on your Mac computer. 
    • Under 'Web Services', choose whether Chrome will show you suggestions or send usage statistics and crash reports.
To clear your browsing data, tap Clear Browsing Data and then select the data to clear and tap Clear Browsing Data.
