Google is retracting the Chrome feature that prevents cross-site tracking


Google temporarily retracts a feature that was launched using Chrome 80 to make sure that it doesn’t hit websites in the midst of the new Corona virus epidemic.

In February, the tech giant began enforcing a new cookie classification system designed to prevent cross-site tracking on Chrome in an attempt to prevent bad actors from exploiting cookie vulnerabilities.

The feature requires developers to refer to the SameSite attribute of their website’s cookies, which dictate how those small files that the browser saves should behave.

And if you don’t, Google will automatically convert this feature to a safe option that prevents cookies from tracking users across websites, however change can cancel the products and services that need

To track across websites to work.

Google said that most developers were ready for the change, which was first disclosed in mid-2019, but the company still decides to undo its enforcement, because it wants to ensure that access to websites that provide basic services, such as banking services and groceries via Internet, government services and health care are still available in these difficult times.

The tech giant will begin to back down today and pledge to announce when it plans to resume its application on the SameSite updates page.
