You can start or stop allowing these reports at any time.

  2. Tap More More.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Under "Advanced", tap Privacy.
  5. Tap Send Usage Data.
  6. Choose Always, Only on Wi-Fi or Never.

What these reports include 

These reports usually won't include any personal information about you, but they might include:

  • Your Chrome settings
  • Where you click
  • How much memory is used by Chrome
  • Web pages that you visit that contain phishing or malware
  • Web pages that you visit where you've entered text using speech
  • Your device's operating system, manufacturer and model. 
  • If Chrome crashes while you're using it, some personal information might be included. This will depend on what was happening at the time of the crash.
