Apple says, and I quote:"no viruses that can attack OS X have so far been detected 'in the wild', i.e. in anything other than laboratory conditions". So Apple is lying then. Gotcha Apple enthusiast..
Of course.https://www.nsslabs.com/sites/default/files/public-report/files/Browser%20Security%20Comparative%20Analysis%20-%20Socially%20Engineered%20Malware.pdfIt's pretty much in line with this one from the previous year.https://www.nsslabs.com/sites/default/files/public-report/files/CAR%20Browser%20Socially%20Engineered%20Malware.pdf
As soon as you claimed there are Mac viruses, whether from Chrome or not, I knew you were "embellishing" to put it kindly.
Uh, Okaaay then ... Mac viruses from Google Chrome. Gotcha. FWIW recent independent research shows Google Chrome successfully blocking 70% of socially-engineered malware, stuff that a computer user is tricked into downloading while browsing the Web or via a malicious email link or IM. How does Safari do with that same malware? It blocked less than 5%.
Sure it COULD be. What you describe isn't targeting tho, unless you consider auto part advertisements in Car and Driver as targeted ads.Don't fool yourself into thinking Apple is not tracking their users for the benefit of advertisers. Thay have you profiled for income, type of work you do, married or not. Whether you have children and the age ranges if you do. the types of app you like, the time you spend with each to extrapolate your interests. In fact Apple says they...

Google's engineers did a nice job improving it? Eventually I'd think they'll roll this up into Google Translate, but just a guess that makes sense.
You and I have had this exact same discussion before IIRC. No, using Chrome as the browser does not put your company at risk for HIPPA violations anymore than using Apple and its servers and cloud services. It's simply BS.Tell your "IT friend" to visit this webpage for advice on Chrome background services, extensions and how to adjust or disable them.https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/1184722?hl=en
Of course it communicates with Google. Here's why:https://www.mattcutts.com/blog/google-chrome-communication/
There's a lot of similar VPN-type apps available on Google Play that also block 3rd party tracking.https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fsecure.freedome.vpn.security.privacy.android&hl=enWhile the developer may be entirely correct as to the specific reasons Google won't approve his app it could well be for some other detail instead since other apps have been approved that offer most if not all of the same features. Apple will sometimes turn down app for vague...
