How to escape Google’s forced logins on Chrome 69

According to security researcher S. Bálint, any time someone using Chrome 69 logs into a Google service or site, they are also logged into Chrome-as-a-browser with that user account. Essentially, Google is forcefully logging users into Chrome. Chrome browser’s privacy policy notes that if you are is not signed in, all the information is locally stored on your system. However, all the data – including your browser history and password autofill information –is sent to Google servers once you’re signed in.

49ers report card: Garoppolo, Sherman injuries cause gloom, doom

George Kittle #85 of the San ...

KANSAS CITY — Here is how the 49ers (1-2) graded in Sunday’s 38-27, injury-laden loss to the Chiefs (3-0).

PASS OFFENSE: D

George Kittle #85 of the San Francisco 49ers checks on injured teammate Jimmy Garoppolo #10 after a play in the fourth quarter of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Sept. 23rd, 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Jimmy Garoppolo sustained a torn ACL on a third-and-goal scramble, but that came about only because he had to escape a collapsing pocket and avoid getting sacked on a third straight play. Justin Houston zoomed past right tackle Mike McGlinchey to flush Garoppolo from the pocket and Chris Jones, after an initial block by Mike Person, chased the QB toward the sideline. Joe Staley gave up a third-down sack in a first quarter that also saw George Kittle and Pierre Garcon unable to catch catch-able passes. Marquise Goodwin and Kyle Juszczyk caught wide-open touchdowns, and Kittle got robbed of one by a ticky-tack penalty against Juszczyk.

Let’s be real, the 49ers rushing attack is going to face eight- and nine-men boxes now that Garoppolo is gone. So rushing for 178 yards against the Chiefs — after 190 vs. the Lions — might be the last land grab until C.J. Beathard establishes a passing threat with a suspect corps. Matt Breida (10 carries, 90 yards) played through a hyperextended knee and is averaging an amazing 8.6 yards per carry this season. Alfred Morris scored his first touchdown as a 49er and ran for 67 yards on …read more
