The latest version of Chrome, released earlier this month, provides deceptive URL protection that redirects users to the right website. Google also introduces an extension for Suspicious Site Reporter for Chrome to send misleading URLs and other malicious pages directly to Safe Browsing.

One common way that malicious parties try to outsmart users is confusing links. For example, go0gle.com could be confused with google.com and cause users to enter usernames and account passwords. A new Chrome 75 built-in warning marks the misleading URLs on a full-screen page, indicating when an error has occurred.

“The link you opened goes to a site you don’t usually visit. It might be trying to confuse you.”

This warning indicates the correct page and diverted users out of the dangerous situation. Behind the scenes, Chrome analyzes the current browsing patterns to reduce errors and false positives.

This new alert compares the URL of the page you are currently on with the URLs of the pages you recently visited. If the URL looks similar and you are confused or confused, a warning will be displayed to help you return to security.

Safe Browsing warns Google against malicious websites or dangerous file downloads. A bright red warning reminds users that they are safe again. Live on 4 billion devices daily, it’s available in Chrome on all platforms and third-party applications like Gmail.

With Google, you can now flag pages directly with the new Suspicious Site Reporter Chrome extension. After installation, a banner will appear next to the Omnibox when you visit a suspicious link.
