    Hi thank you

    Laura Clark: It sounds like you want to remove Chrome from the “Siri Suggestions” area of iOS. To do that go to Settings > Siri & Search, then scroll until you get to the “Chrome” app settings. From there uncheck all the boxes: Learn from this App, Show in Search, Show App

    Same, not working. It seemed to be working just a couple of days ago. Now I see the suggestions again in my phone. Just checked, I have #enable-ntp-remote-suggestions set to “disabled”. Turned off the othrr 3 flags, #enable-homepage-tile and #interest-feed-notifications, and accepted to re-launch the application. Still garbage websites when opening a new tab.

    I agree with Laura 100%

    Things like this wind me up so much that will uninstall crome from all of my devices.

    Best advice.

  6. Laura Clark says:

    The instructions do not work.
    Firstly, in my “advanced settings” and in the entire list of settings I have, in general, there is NO SUCH THING, as this option to modify a setting called “articles for you”. It simply does not exist. Secondly, I have turned off “remote suggestions” via the url chrome://flags/#enable-ntp-remote-suggestions, and it does NOTHING. It’s as if I made absolutely no change, and I still get “suggested articles” on my search page, that I don’t want to see. I am fed up with content being pushed on me, that I don’t want to see. Btw, I also have made modifications to my preferences in Hoigke News, but this has zero effect on the “suggested articles” that relate in NO WAY, *at all* to the actual content that I search for, read, or have any interest in. Am I the only person that is frustrated with this?

      The instructions work exactly as described to remove the suggested articles from Chrome on iPhone, iPad, and Android. I have done this on all of my iPhone and iPads because I too do not want content pushed to me without a specific opt-in.

      Please follow the instructions as described Laura, or perhaps you are using a different operating system.

    There’s another solution: never install Chrome on any device ever.

      Chrome is a great general use web browser and standard kit for any web developer (front and back end)

      I use Safari for a lot of browsing but Chrome for work.
