Manage suggested articles

When you open a new tab, you may find shortcuts to sites you’ve visited lately as suggested by Discover articles. If you're signed in and synced to Chrome, suggested articles are based on your recent Web & App activity.

To find the latest articles in the “Following” section on your Android device or iPhone and iPad, you can manually follow sites. Learn how to use tabs in Chrome.

When you’re signed in and synced to Chrome, you can get article suggestions based on your preferences and interests. For example, if you indicate that you’re not interested in a topic or publisher, you don’t get suggestions from that topic or publisher again.

Suggestions are also based on your interactions with the suggested articles, like when you tap on or scroll past an article.

To get better suggestions provided to you in the future, your preferences are stored in your Google Account. Learn more about your Web & App activity.
