# ** Kaspersky expert: Stop using Chrome, we just discovered something “scary” that Google is doing** **”There’s nothing you can do about it” – Experts Kaspersky’s warning.** Kaspersky technology experts recently warned that Google Chrome doesn’t take data privacy seriously like other browsers. They recommend that users choose to use another browser. A recent post on Kaspersky’s website states that Google Chrome collects most of its user data to make money from advertising sales. The post states: *”If you’re using Google Chrome, Google can see everything you visit online. There’s nothing you can do against that: Just delete as many cookies as you want or browse the web. in incognito mode it won’t make much of a difference – Google will still collect data about your Internet activity.* *Don’t forget that, besides Google, hundreds of other companies are also tracking your behavior. your actions in cyberspace, and Chrome really doesn’t do much to prevent this.”* Kaspersky’s post goes on to suggest users use other browsers that value more privacy and take action. act to prevent other companies from collecting too much data. The list of recommended browsers includes: Apple, Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Vivaldi, DuckDuckGo, Tor Browser and Mullvad Browser. However, according to The Sun, it is not a coincidence that Google Chrome has become extremely popular today and in fact, this browser also has many features that help limit data collection. Users of all device platforms can use incognito mode to access the web, while Android users can use “Do Not Track” mode. In a post on the support site, Google says: *”When browsing the web on your computer or Android device, you can send requests to websites so that they don’t track and collect your browsing data. “.* To use Google Chrome’s incognito mode on a computer, click on the 3 vertical dots in the top right corner of the browser. Then, from the drop-down menu, select “New Incognito Window”. A new window will appear indicating that you have switched to incognito mode. Google did not immediately respond to Kaspersky’s recommendation to stop using Google Chrome. Chrome is currently the most popular browser in the world. A recent report said that Google’s browser is being used by more than 3.2 billion people around the world. At the time of its launch in September 2018, this browser only accounted for less than 1% of the market share. The largest market share belongs to FireFox and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. However, Chrome quickly gained a large number of users. In the past few years, Microsoft Edge and FireFox have gradually regained the advantage when consuming less RAM and CPU than Chrome during operation. However, Chrome still maintains a certain level of popularity due to its friendly design and fast software support. While FireFox retains the title of “most private” browser, Chrome, with its “dominant position” on Android devices, continues to be popular with users as many people want to synchronize their data on memory card, browser history and passwords from the computer to the web browser on the phone or vice versa. Most recently, to support users, Google has added two features to save memory and save energy. In particular, the memory saving feature (Memory Saver) will automatically free memory from inactive tabs, thereby freeing up more resources for other websites and applications on the computer. Meanwhile, the energy saver (Energy Saver) helps Chrome save battery by limiting background activity and visual effects. It optimizes animations and scrolling effects, as well as reduces video frame rates. You may notice changes in game and video performance when Energy Saver is active, which will have a leaf icon to the right of the Address Bar.
