Google’s Chrome browser is about to get even more noisy in its quest to keep your computer malware-free.
Google Chrome can be rather proactive when it comes to labelling sites that may be hosting malware style software, and this is very much a deliberate decision that Google’s rather proud of and that will be accelerating in the very near future.
Writing at Google’s Online Security Blog, Google’s Moheeb Abu Rajab and Stephan Somogyi state that
“In the coming weeks, these detection improvements will become more noticeable in Chrome: users will see more warnings about unwanted software than ever before.
We want to be really clear that Google Safe Browsing’s mandate remains unchanged: we’re exclusively focused on protecting users from malware, phishing, unwanted software, and similar harm. You won’t see Safe Browsing warnings for any other reasons.”
