Privacy news x2 at Google

Google announced new policies for Chrome Extensions and new settings for Smart features this week.

Changes to Chrome will require developers to 1) be more transparent with consumers about data that's requested, 2) show what data is collected, and 3) provide detailed information about the extension's privacy practices.
