How to use Chrome securely

  1. Install uBlock Origin extension. (If you’re not from US, check its options to turn on ad block lists for your country)
  2. Do not install any other extensions ever! (exceptions: 1Password, Google Arts & Culture).
  3. Create separate “people” for different activities: e.g. home, work, browsing sketchy websites. (Click on avatar → Manage People.)
  4. If you want to turn on sync, set up encryption passphrase. It’s a separate passphrase from your Google account — your sync data will be encrypted locally with it before hitting Google servers.
  5. Disable saving/auto fill of passwords, payment, and addresses. (https://twitter.com/Sc00bzT/status/1085521985017466881)

That is all (for now).
