The upcoming stable version of Google Chrome for desktop PCs and laptops will have a “Privacy Guide”, which will help the web browser’s users understand and implement privacy, safety, and online security settings. While Chrome has always had most of these settings, Google claims privacy and security controls should be easier to understand.

Privacy Guide is supposed to be a simplified, step-by-step guided tour of the existing privacy and security controls in Chrome. Google has developed the new guide at its Google Safety Engineering Center (GSEC). The primary intention behind this new guided approach to safety and privacy settings is to help users understand the “Why” behind each setting, explained Google in a blog post that announced the feature.
