Safely Searching with Google

Google has seemingly been working hard on creating a safer environment on their platform. This includes their Chrome browser, Gmail, and the collab with Android.

An application system called “Safe Browsing” was developed by the team to ensure the protection of their users. When an unknown site or app pops up, the system shows a warning message of the potential threat.

“Google Safe Browsing helps protect over four billion devices every day by showing warnings to users when they attempt to navigate to dangerous sites or download dangerous files. Safe Browsing also notifies webmasters when their websites are compromised by malicious actors and helps them diagnose and resolve the problem so that their visitors stay safer. Safe Browsing protections work across Google products and power safer browsing experiences across the Internet.”

Google also shares something called a Transparency Report which shows a list of identities of the threats. It also controls what content on the internet is deemed risky.

The last thing any Google users want is for a vulnerable opportunity to rise so hackers can steal any information they want. Take these warnings into consideration when browsing on Chrome.
