Web service / Prediction service settings in Chrome ?

  crespo 20:19 31 Aug 2014

As a silver surfer new to Chrome, could someone help and tell me if checking the following 2 boxes in Google Chrome's settings is safe ?

1)Use a prediction service to help complete searches. 2)Use a web service to help resolve spelling errors.

Do i need to tick the boxes to use them or can i do without them ?

1 looks at your browsing habbits to work out what you are most likely looking for

2 uses an online spell checker which again looks at your browsing habbits

I do without them both.
