General Privacy: Usage statistics and crash reports


You can let Google Chrome automatically send Google your usage statistics and crash reports, which are files that are created when the browser unexpectedly closes.

Information that's sent to Google includes crash reports and statistics on how often you use Google Chrome features. When you choose to accept a suggested query or URL in the address bar, the text you typed and the corresponding suggestion is sent to Google. Google Chrome doesn't send other personal information, such as name, email address, or Google Account information.

To access this option, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Tools menu tools menu.
  2. Select Options.
  3. Click the Under the Hood tab and find the 'Privacy' section.
  4. Use the 'Help make Google better by automatically sending usage statistics and crash reports to Google' checkbox to turn this feature on or off.
  5. Click Close.

You can also manually locate Google Chrome crash reports on your computer.
