Google Update: Google Updates “Safe Browsing Mode” to Provide an Additional Layer of Security Against Harmful URLs and Virtual Threats
“Safe Browsing Mode” helps devices by showing warnings to users when they attempt to browse to dangerous sites or download dangerous files.
It also alerts webmasters when their websites are compromised by malicious actors and helps them diagnose and fix the problem.
“Safe browsing protections work across all Google products and provide safer internet browsing experiences,” the technology company said.
“Safe Browsing Mode” not only protects Google’s website, but also other products such as Gmail, Search, Google Play, etc.
According to the tech giant, security teams from Google and Android have collaborated to develop an app that scans the infrastructure that protects Google Play and also powers Verify Apps to protect users who install apps outside of Google Play. .
How do I update Safe Browsing?
1. On your Android device, open Google Chrome
2. Click the More option at the top right, then select Settings
3. Select Privacy & Security
4. Then click Safe Browsing
4. Now select the safe browsing level you want to use
However, Google has yet to add this new feature, “Safe Browsing Mode”, to Chrome for iPhone and iPad users.
This is one of the main security measures already provided in Chrome by Google, which helps users fight against a list of harmful URLs. But enabling this new feature will help you stay safe from sites that are not in Google’s built-in list.
Safe Browsing was originally launched in 2007 by Google to protect users on the web against phishing attacks, and has evolved to give users tools to help protect themselves against web threats such as malware, unwanted software and social engineering on desktop and mobile platforms.
