Abstract: Even most privacy-conscious organizations may benefit from leveraging data available to their clients to strengthen security or usability of their offerings. We describe a solution to a practical problem presented by the Chrome browser, which became the first Internet-scale deployment of differential privacy, and share our experience from 2+ years of operating a privacy-preserving telemetry service.
