|Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||gvnmcknz||4/22/09 11:39 AM|
I would like not to leave any cookies, history, etc. when I exit Chrome.
I can do this with every other browser I've used.
Please would you implement this?
Thanks in anticipation

the only reason i am not using chrome at this time is because it does not have the option of deleting browser history on exit. i don't care much about the other features, but that is very important to me.
the incognito mode is good, but it's a pain when i have to do that all the time!
and the spell check option on this browser sucks too! it does not recognize most english words! heck not even 'not' or 'the' or 'or'!!! that's just rediculous!!!

i have a internet caffe, so this feature will come in handy since i dont like for customers to see what other customers where doing.

you can open chrome in the incognito mode by default
create a desktop shortcut to chrome if you don't already have one.
right click it and click on properties
in the shortcut tab you will see Target: then this C:\Users\Dwight\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe in a text box.
on the end of C:\Users\Dwight\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe type "-incognito"
here is what it will look like
then you will see Run: select from the dropdown menu if you want chrome to open maximized or not.
click apply then click ok to exit
everytime you open chrome by clicking on that shortcut it will open in the incognito mode
but if you click on another shortcut without -incognito mode it will open in the default mode

You can also press Ctrl + Shift + Del to bring up the browser info clearing toolbox. This is a feature they grabbed from Firefox for cross-computability of keyboard shortcuts.
I find that the incognito mode sometimes doesn't work properly, so this is a nice solution.

Click&Clean allows you to Clear Browsing Data when chrome closes, you can add this feature to your browser at Google Chrome Gallery:

Dwight, I have tried your instructions multiple times, as stated, and with variations in case of an error. A space should be included before "-incognito"? For me it returns an error message that it is an invalid location, with or without the space. Thanks. Are others having success with this?
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||mf-denver||3/19/10 6:09 PM|
Needed to look like this for me: "C:\Users\Dwight\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -incognito (exclamation marks in wrong places)
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||mf-denver||3/19/10 6:16 PM|
Anyone know how to use the Incognito mode by default through the shortcut and still launch the AdBlock extension? It appears to block that extension

The latest version of Google Chrome (4.1 and above) introduces the option to clear cookies and other site data upon exit. Just go to Tools > Options > Under the Hood > Content Settings > Cookies and select Clear cookies and other site data when I close my browser.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||mm66||5/4/10 11:12 PM|
@Toni that does not clear all data. If I open a blank tab it shows pages I have previously opened even thou Chrome has been closed several times since the pages in question were visited.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||rougegoat||6/7/10 12:11 AM|
works in Chromium(installed on OpenSuSE), but does not clear everything in Chrome(both versions up to date as of 6/6/10). any idea when this would be fixed in Chrome? I keep a computer with Chrome installed on it in my living for my friends who are over to use. I prefer Linux, but they prefer Windows, so I want to make sure that when they use Windows and Chrome(the only non-IE browser installed) that it doesn't keep any information(including browsing history) after the window is closed.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||rougegoat||6/7/10 12:20 AM|
er, my bad. doesn't work in Chromium either. browsing history, despite being set to delete after closing, stays in Chrome&&Chromium.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||mm66||8/4/10 6:50 PM|
would love to get an update on this. At the moment I have uninstalled Chrome until it comes with this feature without having to install an extension.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||rahamby||9/12/10 7:20 AM|
Ctrl-Shift-Del does not work on my machine (XP-SP3) for some reason... other Ctrl-Shift- keys work, just not this one.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||mulchbrain||10/11/10 5:51 PM|
So after all these discussions, there is NO option offered by Chrome at this time to automatically delete your browsing history.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||Michael A Griffey||10/27/10 11:08 AM|
It's faster that way.
This option is no longer a feature in today's world. PC attacks are more frequent and more intrusive. Anyone who uses their browser to do anything other than "browse" should remove chrome and/or safari from their PC as soon as possible. Cookies, history and other stored data can easily be used by hackers to compromise your personal information, bank accounts or other critical information. These files should be stored for the length of the session. Ideally (no browser known does this yet) files would be cleaned upon navigation away from the site (ie tab closed, external link loaded). It should not only be an option, it should be the default option.
Note, despite heavy marketing, that chrome is not one of the key players in the browser wars. I expect more from Google. Every other "Me too" software Google have includes more features than it's originator. In fact, Firefox offered this option before the first release of chrome was made available.

I too would like to see this feature implemented.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||derekross||12/8/10 1:10 PM|
I also would like to see this feature implemented or at least implemented via GPO so I can use it in my enterprise environment.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||Contester||2/12/11 12:11 PM|
Google, why don't you just DO IT RIGHT?????
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||ccomren||3/15/11 12:37 PM|
Just implement it already. There's lots of people waiting for it.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||trannnsteven||5/17/11 4:07 PM|
Please add this feature back. If users don't want to automatically clear browsing data, they can disable it in settings.
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||Paul VC||6/11/11 2:41 AM|
Add a new bookmark to your Chrome bookmarks bar with the URL below in it.
Then each time you need to clear your browsing data, click the bookmark.
It's not quite what was asked for yet, but it might help.

This is why Opera is still #1
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||burnabybob||8/28/11 8:10 AM|
I am going to uninstall Chrome. Keeping all the info without no option to clear history is not safe for me. Bye bye Chrome!
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||ITechFan||12/25/11 9:46 AM|
Chrome is best browser, But it isn't option to clear all data history automatically before close Chrome, i found one plugin of Chrome help clean history automatically before start up Chrome.
Nice try with: Auto Clear 0.4 with url : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/achgkjlnkfpcmfiihpapnjpbhcbjncen.
Prevent popup addons Better Pop Up Blocker2.1.6 with https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/nmpeeekfhbmikbdhlpjbfmnpgcbeggic
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||Willman11||3/13/12 8:14 PM|
Yeah, but so many sites aren't completely compatible with Opera... If only Opera, Firefox, and Google all sat down together and talked and made a single, cooperative browser- it would be simply amazing. Chrome's speed and inventive ideas, Firefox's compatibility and popularity, and Opera's Turbo mode and Speed Dial... There are features and qualities each browser has over the other, as well as falls short. If these 3 combined, it would surely make the best browser known to man! I might even be willing to pay for it! ...might...
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||bribat||12/2/12 3:33 PM|
ya no, went to this link clicked add to chrome browser first thing it says THIS CAN ACCESS ALL DATA ON YOUR COMPUTER !!!! no thanks
|Re: Automatically Clear Browsing Data on Closing Chrome||dONALD Blood||12/26/12 4:15 AM|
FYI. the real reason that there isn't a "clear cache on exit option" is that with an existing cache, it's easier to map user interests than without one...
Make no mistake, I like Google, I think it's only one search service worth something in the whole world, everything else is garbage, BUT just because I don't give a shit, it doesn't mean I don't KNOW why they insist on keeping the cache.

Hey People of the Internet!
So if you'd like you're browser to always be in incognito mode so that nothing is saved to the cache or history, theres a way to do that and this handy guide shows you exactly how!
There's also the click and clean extension that Mixe provided above. You go Mixe!
If you'd really like to see this as a new feature, or if you have another question, post a new thread about it!!
