Google's secure browsing service provides a list of URLs containing malicious software or phishing content to Chrome, Firefox, Safari browsers and ISPs. Google said in September 2017 that its security browsing function protected more than 3 billion devices, up from more than 4 billion last month. It is reported that the service will display warnings before users visit dangerous websites or download dangerous files.
Now, Google is opening up secure browsing to get reports. In fact, the expansion of suspicious website reporters is two-way. When you are on a potentially suspicious site, the extended icon will be displayed. Clicking on the icon will show more explanations of the information that may be suspicious of the site. Users can also report this to Google for further evaluation. If the site is included in the list of suspects for safe browsing, the 4 billion devices mentioned above will be protected.
In addition, Google released Chrome 75 earlier this month. The new version provides a new warning to steer users away from confusing sites. This function compares the URL of the user's current page with that of the page he visited recently. If the URLs look similar but different (such as go0gle.com and google.com), Chrome will display a warning to help users return to the correct domain name.
Emily Schechter, product manager of Chrome, said: "We don't think you should be a security expert to ensure your network security. Many senior Chrome users agree with our mission to make the network safer for everyone."
