Google allows Chrome user to demystify warnings when browsing unsafe sites


Recommended Posts


If you're a Chrome user and have traveled to a potentially compromised site, you've most likely encountered a dramatic warning message. Google has offered these warnings since 2006, but making sense of them was introduced much later in 2008. In a small update, Google is adding a page to its 'Transparency Report' that will allow users to demystify the warnings, using an improved interface and simpler explanations.

According to Google, the newly added page will offer a "clearer interface and simpler explanations of the issues, such as details for sites that host unwanted software." Much like the previous webpage, curious users will be able to navigate to the newly established support page to find out what the potential issues might be with the site they are trying to visit. Naturally, if you want to still travel to the potentially compromised page, you are welcome to do so, but there could be consequences.

For those curious, be sure to hit the source link below as it will allow you to check to see if your favorite site has some anomalies. Source: Google
