Google is adding a new pop-up alert to Chrome in order to protect users from harmful actors over the internet. When any users are about to visit any sites that motivate the users to download unwanted or malicious programs, then it will pop-up new red flag that will warn you.

It also includes the program that changes your browsers Homepage – which is not an uncommon thing and such software can qualify from the Google’s point of view.
The effect on users at home – Users those who have Chrome with latest updates will now start viewing warning message when surfing to a site that are potentially harmful and software downloads. Users will get the large red screen pop-up warning that will inform users about the site that they are about to visit may trick and try them to installing unwanted program. Users will then have option to get more information and they may carry to visit site even after they are aware of the risks or they may get back “to safety” at the Google Homepage.
More than just browsers
In addition to the updates to chrome, Google is working hard for handling malicious software with other parts of its business. The company is going to filter the websites that are harmful from their search results. They are also removing ads that redirect users to sites providing unwanted software.
