Google Announces Three New Chrome Security Features

Well, this is the third security feature Google added, and this is the integration of ESET's detection engine with Chrome's sandbox technology. It's important to note that this app is created to only get rid of software that affects the browsing experience.

The browser can now determine whether without the knowledge of the user changed its settings, and offer to revert to the previous version.

Chrome for Windows now notifies users when an extension changes the user's settings without their permission.

The biggest addition is a new option which detects if settings such as the default search engine has been hijacked by a rogue Chrome extension.

"Sometimes when you download software or other content, it might bundle unwanted software as part of the installation process without you knowing". Google says it redesigned the alerts to make it easier to see what software will be removed. Google rushes to take note of that Chrome Cleanup isn't a catch-all antivirus arrangement, however; it will just evacuate augmentations that abuse Google's Unwanted Software Policy, so regardless you'll need to ensure that you are very fearless of customary antivirus programming set.

Almost 300 Rohingya villages torched in Myanmar: HRW
A Rohingya refugee girl poses with a chicken at Balukhali refugee camp near Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh, on Tuesday. This was repeated in "in dozens of villages across Maungdaw, Rathedaung, and Buthidaung townships".

Google also specifies that only programs that do not comply with the rules established for Chromium are considered malicious and are thus removed by the Chrome Cleanup. Unwanted software cause harmful effects like abnormalities in browser redirecting to specific pages never searched for.

However, from now on worries as Google has taken up your side with this latest update of chrome to fighting back such nasty threats and has introduced a clean and safer web experience for its Chrome users.

This feature has been available for the past month, with Google noting that it has helped millions of people restore their settings.

"We've begun to roll this out to Chrome for Windows users now".

Ideally the new changes will imply that Google Chrome clients on Windows will have the capacity to appreciate somewhat more genuine feelings of serenity going ahead.
