    Hello all,

    Is there a simple solution for preventing the continuous need to apply selections to the Google search permissions - other than signing into Google?

    It is tedious & annoying, can I block it somehow?
    I don't want them snooping, the nosey [email protected][email protected]$


    Thanks

    If you don’t want them snooping the best option is not to use it. I use DDG now.

    If you’ve got something clearing cookies each time you close the tab/browser then yes you’ll have to accept the pop up every time. Even if you sign in, clearing the cookies will sign you out again.

    If nothing is clearing the cookies then you shouldn’t get the pop up each time, even if not signed in.

    There's too many to name. The most common ones are Bing and DuckDuckGo after Google.

    Ok thanks - neither of them track and hassle you as much as Google then?
