    In this folder, we need to find the Google Chrome application.
    Mine is located here. We can see the Google Chrome icon, which is a circle made up of different colors. Underneath, it says the word "Chrome". Our Google Chrome application may be in different positions in this folder. Therefore, we will need to find it. Once we've done that, press down on it, to enter the application.

    It will tell us some information about this feature.
    It says, "When this feature is turned on, Chrome will use Google servers to compress pages that you visit before downloading them. SSL and incognito pages will not be included. Chrome's Safe Browsing System will also be used to detect malicious pages and protect you from phishing, malware, and harmful downloads. This feature may interfere with access to premium data services provided by your operator." If we want to learn more about this, we can press "Learn more" at the bottom. This is pretty explanatory. We can get a good idea of what this feature does. This feature is currently off. It says, "Off" and the icon in the top right-hand corner is gray.
