    Default Unique Chrome ID on install

    Apparently when you install Chrome a unique ID is assigned to your installation.

    Does anybody know where this unique ID is installed ...

    If someone does, do they know how to display it ..

    Not a problem (mind you Mr Google might not be too pleased lmao)

    The info is held in the following location ...

    Chrome> User Data> Local State 'user experience metrics' 'client id'

    You need a little thing called UnChrome (or you could do it yourself)

    It simply changes the ID to a null value ...

    You can find it here ... http://www.abelssoft.net/unchrome.php

    Enjoy :-)

    Believe it or not I found this by accident, I was looking to see if there was any free software to hide your IP address....

    By the way congratulations on becoming a Moderator ...
