Visiting your favorite websites or just any website can be kind of frustrating when the on-screen text is hard to read. Fortunately, the Google Chrome web browser on the iPhone and iPad has a text-specific zoom feature. You can adjust the default text size on any website by using the Zoom Text function.

It’s easy to get confused as to which browser this applies to. This feature is for your Google Chrome browser, not the default Safari web browser.

What’s neat is that Chrome remembers your preference and will show the designated text size going forward (no need to adjust the text every time).

Let’s explore how to change text size on websites in Chrome for iPhone and iPad.

Browser Extensions May Be Looking At Your Data

Have you ever noticed the message you see when you install a browser extension in Chrome, for example? For most browser extensions, a message appears stating that the extension can “Read and modify all of your information on the websites you visit.”

Have you ever noticed the message you see when you install a browser extension in Chrome, for example? For most browser extensions, a message appears stating that the extension can “Read and modify all of your information on the websites you visit.” Refer to below image where we are looking at DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension, an Internet privacy company, on their permissions:

Extension 1
Viewing a Chrome extension for permissions

What! Does not look secure to me as it reads all data on your device. You want to remove this browser extension and similar extensions for privacy issues.

To review your Chrome browser extensions:

  • Open Chrome, and click the 3-dot hamburger icon in upper-right hand corner.
  • Click on More Tools, then Extensions. They will be listed alphabetically.
  • Find a browser Extension that is enabled. Click on its Details button. Now, scroll down to the Permissions and Site Access sections to view how it is accessing your data.

You may be surprised as to the information the Extension is collecting on you. Let’s explore what this is about.

This is for modern day browsers like Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Screenshots are from Chrome desktop version

This means that the browser extension has full access to all web pages you visit. It can see which web pages you are browsing, read their content and look at everything you write. It can even modify the web pages; for example by inserting additional ads. If the extension is malicious, it can collect all your private information; from web activity and emails you write to your passwords and financial information; and send it to a remote server on the Internet.

I am tired of receiving fake emails, texts, tweets, posts, and so on. Recently I have been receiving media from Thank You, USPS, Wells Fargo, Cox Communications, and so on.

This is primarily due to my accounts being compromised and sold. Another reason is some browser extensions is watching my activity.

If a browser extension is completely reliable and trustworthy, that’s fine. The browser extension may behave responsibly and not capture any data or interfere with your banking information.

We do not say that you have to uninstall every browser extension you have. Instead, you just realize the enormous access you give to the browser extensions you install and act on accordingly.

See below image for a popular Chrome extension, Todolist, permissions allowing access to its web site:

But keep this in mind; if you do not trust the add-on, you may not want to run it in the first place. We recommend you click the Remove button to delete any extension you do not trust. See following image:

How to Turn On Safer Browsing in Google Chrome

Google has some built-in tools in Chrome that attempt to make browsing safer. Enhanced Safe Browsing is one such tool.

With Safe Browsing, you get alerts about malware, risky extensions, phishing, or sites on Google’s list of potentially unsafe sites.

Google has some built-in tools in Chrome that attempt to make browsing safer. Enhanced Safe Browsing is one such tool. Let’s explore how to turn on this feature.

This is for the desktop version of Chrome and Android. Screenshots are from Chrome on Windows 10.

Enhanced Safe Browsing Explained

Safe Browsing is a list of dangerous URLs that is maintained by Google and used to protect users from malicious sites. Enhanced Safe Browsing builds upon this feature with some additional tools.

With Enhanced Safe Browsing enabled, Chrome shares even more browsing data with Google. This allows for threat assessments to be more accurate and proactive, though it does present a privacy concern in itself. You are letting Google monitor your browsing.

Per Google’s description, Enhanced Safe Browsing enables the following:

  • It predicts and warns you about dangerous events before they happen.
  • It keeps you safe on Chrome and may be used to improve your security in other Google apps when you are signed in.
  • It improves security for you and everyone on the web.
  • It warns you if passwords are exposed in a data breach.

Enable This Feature

The feature is available for Chrome on the desktop and Android. It is not available for iPhone and iPad. The process for enabling it is very similar on both platforms.

First, launch Chrome. Next, select the three-dot menu (the hamburger) icon in the top-right corner of Chrome. Now, choose Settings from the menu. Refer to below image:

Selecting Settings

Next, go to the Privacy and Security section. See below image:

Accessing Privacy and security option

Now, on the desktop, click Security. On the Android, it is called Safe Browsing. See following image:

Browsing 3
Accessing the Security option

Next, click or tap on the radio button to enable Enhanced protection. Refer to below image:

Enabling Enhanced protection

Now, exit Settings. You are finished. You will not notice anything different in your everyday browsing, but you will now have better protection. In the event that something is amiss, Google Chrome will give you a warning.

How to Easily Open Chrome to Incognito Mode

If you do not want Google Chrome to remember your activity, you can browse the web privately in Incognito mode.

If you do not want Google Chrome to remember your activity, you can browse the web privately in Incognito mode.

It is easy to quickly open an Incognito window using a keyboard shortcut. Lets explore how to do this.

This is devices running Google Chrome

Dilbert and Class
Copyright Scott Adams, Inc./Distributed by Universal Uclick for UFS

First, open Chrome. Next, with any Chrome browser window open, press the following keyboard combination to open a new Incognito window:

  • Windows, Linux, or Chrome OS: Press Ctrl + Shift + N.
  • Mac: Press ⌘ + Shift + N.

After pressing the keyboard shortcut, a special Incognito window will open. If you want to block third-party cookies, just toggle the switch to On, the default setting. Refer to below image:

Incognito 1
Your Incognito window

Whenever you are in Incognito mode, you will be able to tell because the Chrome browser window’s toolbar will have a darker color scheme and there will be a small Incognito icon beside the address bar in the toolbar. See below image:

Incognito 2
The icon and text telling you are in Incognito mode

You can switch between Incognito windows and regular Chrome windows. You will only browse in private when you are using an Incognito window.

While browsing within an Incognito window, Chrome will not locally store your browsing history, site data, cookies, or saved form data once you close the Incognito window. However, downloaded files and bookmarks will be saved unless you manually remove them.

At any time, you can press Ctrl+T (or ⌘ + T on Mac) to open a new tab within the Incognito window, and browsing activity within that tab will be locally private as well.

Remember that Incognito mode is not perfect, and it does not protect you from those who might view your activity on the web remotely, such as your employer, school, ISP, or the websites you visit. It is only to prevent local snooping of your browsing history.

If you see a number next to the Incognito text at the top right, you have more than one Incognito window open. See following image:

Incognito 3
Your number of Incognito windows open

When you are ready to stop private browsing, you will need to close the Incognito window(s). To do so using a keyboard shortcut:

  • Windows, Linux, or Chrome OS: Press Alt + F4
  • Mac: Press ⌘ + Shift + W

Or you can just click the “X” in the corner of the window with your mouse.

The iPhone has been out for over a decade, and for most of that time, Apple has only allowed one browser to be the default. Safari, the one they built; till iOS 14 and higher, has been the only supported browser.

This means that Google Chrome fans can finally set the app as their default, and use it for all their browsing.

As long as your device is running the latest version of the operating system, this setting should be available to you.

You can change the default browser in the Settings app. First, though, make sure you have downloaded the latest version of Chrome from the App Store and opened it at least once.

How to Control Text in Google Chrome

If you’re having trouble comfortably reading text that is either too small or too big on a website in Google Chrome, there’s a quick way to change it.

If you’re having trouble comfortably reading text that is either too small or too big on a website in Google Chrome, there’s a quick way to change it. Let’s explore how to do this.

Chrome includes a feature called Zoom that allows you to quickly make text and images bigger or smaller on any website. You can zoom a web page from anywhere between 25% and 500% of its usual size.

When you navigate away from a page, Chrome will remember your zoom level for that website when you come back to it.

This is for devices using Google Chrome

  • Press Ctrl and 0 (zero) to return to the default size, normally 100%

Method 2: Using the Mouse

Press and hold the Ctrl key and rotate the scroll wheel on your mouse. Depending on which direction you spin the wheel, the text will become larger or smaller.
