Google Chrome to Change SameSite Cookie Behavior in its upcoming Release in February 2020

Written by Mukul Kaushik

Background on the Google Chrome announcement:In May 2019, Chrome announced the next updates to its browser’s privacy and identity features. They announced changes to impose a stricter requirement on cookies, in particular, indicators for better classification of cross-site behaviour and understanding of the end-user. We expect this to be the first of many security and privacy updates to Google Chrome. The Google update will significantly reduce the risk of cross-information leakage, including defending against Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. 

How can this impact you?
