How to Hide Chrome Suggested Articles on iPhone and Android

Don’t misunderstand me! Chrome continues to be my preferred online browser across all operating systems (macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android), but there are some features, like article suggestions, that frequently force me to hunt for Chrome alternatives. Too many suggested articles seem to clog the entire UI every time I open a new tab. Even if some of the suggested tales do attract my attention, the majority seem to be repetitious. That’s the same reason I looked into a technique to make Chrome’s suggested articles disappear on iPhone and Android. Jump right in as I demonstrate how you can easily turn off article suggestions in Chrome if you also like to keep a clean tab.

Hide Chrome Suggested Articles on iPhone and Android

On iOS (and iPadOS) devices, Chrome provides a rather simple method to disable article recommendations. For a reason that only Google knows, the web browser shockingly does not include a native feature to stop this capability on Android devices. There is a straightforward way to get through the line, so there is no need to be disappointed. I’ve tested this hack on my Android phone, so I can attest to its dependability. So with that said, let’s begin!

Disable Article Suggestions in Chrome on iOS and iPadOS

  1. Open the Chrome app on your iPhone or iPad.

2. Next, select Settings from the menu by tapping the three horizontal dots at the bottom of the screen.

3. The next step is to deactivate Article Suggestions. Then, to finish, make sure you tap on Doneat in the top right.

Turn off Chrome Article Suggestions Using Chrome Flags on Android

Many puzzles have been known to be solved via chrome flags. And guess what? They did a good job of taking down the suggested tales as well.

  1. Open Chrome app on your Android device and then enter chrome://flags into the URL bar and hit Return/Go.

2. Type #enable-ntp-remote-suggestions in the search bar now, then press Return once again.

3. After that, select Disabled from the drop-down box next to Show Server-Side Suggestions.

4. To implement the modifications, tap Relaunch Now. Chrome will restart in order to immediately implement the modifications. When you use the app in the future, those undesired articles won’t be all over the place (as you can see in the image below).


Keep Chrome s Unwanted Articles Hidden Away

That’s a simple method for handling Chrome’s suggested articles and keeping the interface clean. Like many of you, I also wonder why Google doesn’t provide a straightforward mechanism to turn off this feature in the app’s Android version. Hopefully the search engine behemoth gets it right as soon as possible. Do you have any comments for us, by the way? Post it in the section below.
