Disable use of Search Engine Suggestion Services

SUMMARY: Prevent Google Chrome from querying search engine suggestion services when typing text or web addresses into the address bar.

By default, when typing text or web address URLs into Google Chrome's address bar, Google Chrome will query the default search engine's suggestion service to find related queries or matches to your entered URL/search.

If you do not find the suggestion services useful, or are concerned about your privacy when entering searches and URLs into the address bar, make the following tweak:

Typing "president" in Google Chrome's address bar shows related searches and websites

2. Select "Options".

3. When the "Google Chrome Options" dialog box appears, click the "Basics" tab.

4. Next to "Default Search", click the "Manage" button.

5. When the "Search Engines" dialog box appears, uncheck "Use a suggestion service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar".
