Google is introducing new security features in the upcoming release of Chrome to help users stay safe online. Nowadays, keeping privacy while surfing the internet has become a serious issue. Google chrome’s new feature intends to ensure a malware-free user experience when surfing the internet.
How the new security features work:
- Proactive alerts for removed or malicious extensions: Chrome will now proactively alert users when an extension is not in the Chrome Web Store, or if it has been removed or marked as malware. This will help users stay on top of their extensions and keep their browsing experience secure.
- Automatic upgrade of HTTP to HTTPS: Chrome will now automatically upgrade all HTTP URLs to the more secure HTTPS version. This will encrypt user traffic and enhance their online safety.
- Warnings for downloading high-risk files on insecure connections: Chrome will soon display warnings when attempting to download “high-risk files” on insecure connections. This will help users avoid downloading malicious files that could compromise their security.
These new security features are part of Google’s ongoing commitment to keeping Google Chrome users safe online. By proactively alerting users to potential threats and taking steps to protect their browsing experience, Chrome is helping users stay one step ahead of cybercriminals.
