Google Focuses on Security With New Chrome Feature For Android Users

Google has a big problem with security, this is something that most users as well as tech industry commentators are well aware of. Google is also aware of this, but their attempts to create a vast reaching tech empire often clash with their desire for increased security, and it’s fair to say that Google has a pretty big tendency to prefer the former over the latter in spite of the fact that this causes a lot of problems and makes consumers trust Google a lot less than might have been the case otherwise.

It seems like Google is taking a step towards improved security, at least as far as the new feature that Chrome for Android is getting is concerned. This new feature is similar to what people have been seeing in Chrome for desktop, and it basically involves a safety check, however, its still in development phase n Canary version. If you do a safety check, you will get a lot of information that will enable you to boost how secure you are while you are surfing the internet, something that a lot of different users are probably going to end up appreciating quite a bit at the end of the day.

If you do a safety check, you will be told whether or not your Safe Browsing feature has been turned on. You would also get a verification regarding how up to date your browser is, something that can have a pretty serious impact on your overall security all in all. Perhaps the most important thing to note here is that if you perform a security check you will get a scan of all of your passwords and you will be informed if any of them have been compromised, and if this does end up being the case you will be given a number of options that you can look into that would make it easier to figure out how you can get this problem fixed without any trouble.
