Google Caught Logging Users Into Chrome on Google-Owned Sites

It was reported this week that Google had quietly made changes to Chrome that would log the user’s Google identity on Google-owned sites.

Chrome’s Sync system, which previously worked independently from the logged-in state of Google accounts, now automatically logs the user in and synchronizes local browser data to Google’s servers.

Even though Google engineers clarified that the mechanism was added because of shared computers/browsers, and that the synchronization will still require the user to click to allow the process, users were still angered because of the privacy repercussions and Google’s failure to inform them of the update.
