This article explains how to turn “Auto-verify” on or off in the Google Chrome web browser.
Google Chrome is a cross-platform web browser developed by Google. It and Microsoft Edge share the same codebase. They are practically identical in basic functionalities, using browsing activities, including history and other browsing data, to provide personalized ads, search, shopping, and news.
Starting with Chrome version 121 and higher, a new “Auto-verify” feature was added so that sites can help verify you’re not a bot. When turned on, the sites you visit can verify you’re a real person and not a bot.
This is done by saving a small amount of info with Chrome, mainly to validate you’re not a bot.
There are different reasons why someone may want to turn “Auto-verify” on or off in Google Chrome. For instance, if you care about your privacy and don’t want to share your browsing data with websites, you may want to turn off this feature.
On the other hand, if you frequently visit sites that require verification, such as online stores or social media platforms, turning on “Auto-verify” can make your browsing experience more seamless and efficient.
