Google has announced that it will expand its Chrome browser’s safety check feature to protect users better. The feature, which was first introduced in 2018, allows users to check if their browser and extensions are up to date and if any potentially harmful settings are enabled.
Using Google’s Safe Browsing technology, the expanded safety check will now include a real-time check for unsafe websites. This technology checks websites against a constantly updated list of known malicious sites and warns users if they attempt to visit one. The safety check will also include a new feature that checks if a user’s password has been compromised in a data breach. If a password is found to be compromised, the user will be prompted to change it and enable two-factor authentication.
Google has also announced that the safety check will now be available in incognito mode, allowing users to run the check without logging out of their accounts. Additionally, the safety check will now be available in more languages, including Spanish, French, German, and Chinese.
The expanded safety check is being rolled out to users in the Google Chrome browser’s stable channel and will be available to all users in the coming weeks. This move is part of Google’s ongoing efforts to improvise the security of products and protect its users from online threats.
The expanded safety check is a welcomed addition to the Google Chrome browser and will help users stay safe online. By incorporating real-time checks for unsafe websites and allowing users to check if their passwords have been compromised, Google is taking a proactive approach to protecting its users. With the expanded safety check now available in incognito mode and in more languages, more users will be able to take advantage of this useful feature.
