As you know, Google Chrome, the latest web browser introduced by Google, has introduced a new feature which takes care of your privacy in an excellent way. I am talking about the “Incognito Mode” which deletes your footprint and every kind of trace during your Internet surfing. However, this may not be sufficent. In fact, Google Chrome uses a client_id variable which is unique for every Chrome user, and which can be used to create exact user profiles of a user’s actions while using Google Chrome.

Chrome Privacy Protector is a simple, free tool which deletes the unique Client ID before each run of Google Chrome. This Client ID is used for the user metrics service which sends usage statistics to Google so that we can learn how Google Chrome is being used for the sake of making improvements. If you do not like the idea that Google may spy you, even to improve its software, just launch Chrome Privacy Protector, and then click the “Remove unique ID now” button to anonymize your Google Chrome!
