Tip: Use Google Chrome to create strong passwords for websites

  • Disable account-consistency Chrome flag

This move is another step Google has taken in blurring the boundaries between its software and its services, and many people are understandably concerned. Copy and paste this text into your browser's address bar: chrome://flags/#account-consistency. It was first discussed on Hacker News.

"I use a Mac, but was using Chrome for a few websites that didn't work very well on Safari", wrote one user, calling it a "Forced Login Policy".

In short, Google has transformed the question of consenting to data upload from something affirmative that I actually had to put effort into - entering my Google credentials and signing into Chrome - into something I can now do with a single accidental click. He also points to an issue Mashable has discussed before: dark patterns.

It's worth noting that passwords and bookmarks aren't synced by default when you're signed in automatically to Chrome 69, but that might not be enough to allay people's security fears. I could waste a lot more ink wondering about the mismatch between the stated "problem" and the "fix", but I won't bother: "because nobody on the public-facing side of the Chrome team has been able to offer an explanation that squares this circle". The changes include tweaking a section title from "Signed-in Chrome mode" to "Signed-in, Synched Chrome mode" as well as the addition of two sentences: "On desktop versions of Chrome, signing into or out of any Google web service (e.g. google.com) signs you into or out of Chrome". The whole tell-tale story that the browser uploads user data to Google's servers right away, has apparently, been termed as a mere misconception. So the automatic sign-in and sync are different, according to the company. As an example, he pointed to Chrome including a new menu that invites you to sync your browsing data. However, all the data - including your browser history and password autofill information -is sent to Google servers once you're signed in. Google has been in a kind of arms race with Facebook to capture and understand user data for targeting, remarketing and attribution.

Green's social media clout, along with some heated Twitter conversations, did manage to push things at Google's headquarters, and Chrome engineers have told Green that Google will clarify Chrome's Privacy Policy to reflect Chrome's new mode of operation.

When he wrote about his issues with the change, he also anxious that Google's "Sync" feature was automatically being enabled, but it appears that's not the case. And most recently we've seen numerous reports that it's working on a censorship and surveillance-friendly search engine for China - a project that it will only vaguely acknowledge while employees are protesting internally. He writes a personal blog, Screenwerk, about connecting the dots between digital media and real-world consumer behavior.
