Google scraps Chrome 79 update over critical data bug

A number of users reported experiencing the loss of crucial login data in third-party apps after installing Chrome 79 on their devices.

The tech giant confirmed any app that accesses Chrome via Android's built-in WebView system could be affected and said it could take a week to resolve.

The update has already been rolled out to 50% of Android users worldwide.

A number of apps rely heavily on WebView, while some - including Twitter Lite, a scaled-down version of the social media platform - are run entirely using the system.
