You can never be too safe on the Internet, especially when it concerns your private data. That’s why Google, in line with its habit of making user security a top priority, has decided to add even more warnings to Chrome when users visit a webpage that contains nay tricks that may try to convince you to install “programs that harm your browsing experience.”
No matter how hard you work to ensure your private data stays safe, it’s impossible to account for every potential security threat, as most recently illustrated by Lenovo’s bizarre adware catastrophe. Thankfully, there are other technology companies that consider security a priority, which is why Google’s latest Safe Browsing expansion is worth highlighting. In order to protect users from downloading malicious software, Google has added an additional warning in Chrome when users visit any webpage where attackers “might attempt to trick you into installing programs that harm your browsing experience.” This bold, red warning coupled with the dialog box that appears before downloading a program could save a few reckless Chrome users from downloading unwanted software.
