Every Google Chrome user warned to change setting TODAY to delete data websites hold on you

GOOGLE has released an update to its popular Chrome browser and there are some really important new settings worth your attention.

In fact, if you're worried about what data sites have collected, this change is definitely for you.

Before, Google would allow you to only delete cookies that individual sites have on you.

But now the tech giant has decided to beef up its privacy tools with the chance to delete ALL data a site holds.

It forms part of the latest version, Chrome 97, which is available now.

Once installed, go to Settings to get started.

From there, select Security and privacy, followed by Site settings.

You can then go to View permissions and data stored across sites, where you'll be able to see and delete what you like.
