Without the user’s knowledge, Google Chrome extensions and downloads can frequently turn out to be dangerous. Google has been working to make Chrome more secure against malware downloads and extensions.
It is introducing new tools that should make it easier for consumers to identify malicious Google Chrome downloads and extensions. The new features are part of Google’s Enhanced Safe Browsing, which was introduced last year.
If you download a potentially hazardous file, Chrome will prompt you to report it to Google for additional scanning.
Google Chrome will now provide extra security while downloading dangerous files thanks to Enhanced Safe Browsing. If you download a potentially hazardous file, Chrome will prompt you to report it to Google for additional scanning.
The file will be sent to Google Safe Browsing for further examination. Chrome will notify you if the file is indeed hazardous. This is not required, though, as you can avoid scanning. However, it is preferable if you do not do so.
Google will begin handing out the new features to all users with Chrome 91. These are features of Chrome’s Enhanced Enhanced Safe Browsing, which is already available. According to Google, “users are successfully phished 35 percent less than other users” when using Enhanced Safe Browsing.
Chrome’s Enhanced Safe Browsing can be enabled by:
Step 1: Going to Settings.
Step 2: Privacy and security.
Step 3: Security on PC, and Settings.
Step 4: Privacy and security.
Step 5: Safe Browsing on Android.
