About Google Chrome unique ID

More information about Chrome unique ID, there is an article from Google official document:

General privacy: Privacy, unique IDs, and RLZ

Unique IDs: The Privacy Policy for Google Chrome mentions several unique application numbers. Those include the following:

  • The installation ID (IID) is created at install time to remove duplicate installation reports from Google servers. This is necessary to accurately count the number of successful installations of Google Chrome that have occurred. The IID is generated randomly (not based on any other information) and is deleted in the next update check after first run.
  • The client ID is used for the user metrics service. This is an opt-in service that lets users send usage statistics to Google so that we can learn how Google Chrome is being used for the sake of making improvements. It helps us answer questions like, "Are people using the back button?" and "How common is it that people click the back button repeatedly?" Users can always update their preference about sending usage statistics.
