Embedded browser: Disable external web service calls

Jonathon | Last updated: Jul 22, 2020 07:53PM UTC

The embedded browser is a nice step, but it sends many requests out to external Google services, including automatic search queries when typing in the address bar. Please modify the default chromium configuration to disable calls to external services. This is major privacy concern when testing sensitive applications.

Hi Jonathon, This is an issue that we are aware of and we have a feature request in our development backlog to reduce the noise generated when using the embedded browser. I have added your ticket to the request so that our development team can prioritize their resources based upon demand. We will also update this thread when we have some news to share.

Hi Jonathon, We just wanted to let you know that the new Burp 2021.2 release should now reduce the noise from Burp's embedded browser automatically.
