Here's a way to help protect your browser from Google Chrome's latest privacy snafu
Google's Chrome 69 hides a disturbing twist: if you log into Gmail or another Google service, Chrome seems to automatically log you into the browser as well. Theoretically, that means that you will automatically begin sharing data with Google, like it or not.

The confusion comes from a new way in which Google shows your "logged in" status. Previously, if you were signed in to Chrome, an icon would appear in the upper right-hand corner, indicating that you were signed in and sharing data. The same icon now appears if you're logged into a Google service like Google.com or Gmail, but not necessarily to Chrome. 

What does all this mean? Most people associate signing in to your Google account with signing into the Chrome browser, but that's not always the case.

US trade war with China intensifies as planned talks 'are axed' amid largest ever tariffs
The US has hit China with its largest round of tariffs yet in an escalating trade war, as planned talks between the two nations have reportedly been cancelled. The Chinese government accused Donald Trump's administration of "trade bullying practices" and "intimidating other countries through economic measures" after the US levied tariffs of 10 per cent on $200bn of Chinese products. The latest round of tariffs arrived after $50bn worth were previously applied by both China and the US on each other's products.

China's Catholic Church pledges loyalty to Party after Vatican deal
China's Catholic Church reaffirmed its loyalty to the country's ruling Communist Party on Sunday, while welcoming a landmark deal struck with the Vatican on appointing new bishops.

China comes out ahead in Vatican deal: analysts
The landmark deal between China and the Vatican is a win for Beijing, giving official recognition to bishops appointed by the government despite a crackdown on religion, and potentially softening the ground for full diplomatic relations after 67 years of estrangement, analysts said. The two sides signed a provisional agreement on Saturday on who gets to name senior churchmen, an issue that has bedevilled ties for decades, and China quickly said it hoped for an improvement in relations. With its outsized international influence, the Vatican is the most important of Taiwan's 17 remaining friends, and its only European partner.

What's in the latest Chrome update?
A decade after Google launched the first iteration of Chrome, this week the company updated the browser to version 69, touting a freshened user interface (UI), an enhanced password manager and a more informative address bar.

Google also patched 40 security vulnerabilities in the browser and paid bug bounties to researchers who reported the flaws.

Apple upgrades its Safari browser on macOS and iOS just once a year, making the refresh more strategic than most of its rivals, notably Google, which last year had eight separate opportunities to add features or functionality to Chrome.

The next Safari, which will be bundled with macOS 10.14 'Mojave' and iOS 12, and offered as a separate download for those who stick with macOS High Sierra (10.13) and Sierra (10.12), thus must make its enhancements count.

IoT privacy: 30 ways to build a security culture
Much work still must be done before the industrial and municipal Internet of Things (IoT) becomes widely adopted outside of the circle of innovators. One field, privacy, well understood by the public and private sector in the context of the cloud, PCs and mobile, is in the early stage of adaptation for the IoT.

The sheer volume of data that will be collected and the new more granular architecture of the IoT present new privacy concerns that need to be resolved on an equal scale as the platform's forecasted growth.

A demonstration of this new aspect of privacy and compliance is the Privacy Guidelines for Internet of Things: Cheat Sheet, Technical Report (pdf) by Charith Perera, researcher at the Newcastle University in the U.K. The nine-page report details 30 points about implementing strong privacy protections. This report is summarized below.
