Chrome recently issued an update to notify their users that version 80 will include this same update and was set to go live Feb. 4th, 2020.
What does this mean to Pendo Users?
This update affected Pendo or Pendo Adopt partners while launching the Designer for Pages, Features or Guides starting February 3rd, 2020. Pendo also implemented changes to their cookies so Chromium updates doesn't interrupt users during tagging or Guide building experiences.
