Use these Google Chrome extensions to protect privacy online.

It’s never too late to protect your privacy, especially with your web browser. Thankfully, Chrome users can customize their privacy options by visiting the Chrome Web Store to access thousands of extensions for better protection. We’re sharing three that are worth checking out and installing.

Keep My Opt-Outs

The Keep My Opt-Outs extension for Chrome works to permanently opt your browser out of online ad personalization via cookies. By now, most of us are quite familiar with entering random online searches only to discover that visits to subsequent websites will serve ads based on your searches. Kinda creepy. Use this Chrome extension to eliminate behavioral tracking.

Don’t Track Me Google

You have to love a Google Chrome extension with a name that says exactly what it does. Get Don’t Track Me Google to eliminate click recordings on links, which prevents other websites from knowing your search terms. Easy to install and simple to set-up.

Privacy Palette

Privacy Palette is almost like an all-in-one privacy dashboard for your Chrome browser. It’s designed to empower you with better control over your online privacy and it comes with a rich line-up of privacy-related features: disable tracking, delete cookies, enable safe browsing and much, much more. What makes Privacy Palette exceptional is that it centralizes a variety of privacy settings in one location. Give it a go!
