(CTN News) – Google’s Chrome commitment to enhancing the security measures of its products is evident in its latest development, the introduction of the Safety Check feature for Chrome.
This feature goes beyond just password checks and includes a comprehensive background check of the internet to identify any compromised passwords among the user’s saved credentials.
By continuously monitoring for compromised passwords, Safety Check promptly notifies users about passwords that require immediate change, ensuring that they are alerted sooner than before.
But Safety Check doesn’t stop at password checks. It also monitors for potentially harmful extensions or site permissions that users should review.
This added layer of security ensures that users are aware of any potential risks associated with their browsing experience. Users can easily take action on Safety Check alerts through Chrome’s three-dot menu, making it convenient and user-friendly.
One notable feature of Safety Check is its ability to revoke a site’s permissions if users have not visited it for an extended period.
This feature adds an extra level of security by automatically removing permissions from sites that users may have forgotten about or no longer use. By doing so, Google ensures that users have full control over their browsing experience and minimizes the risk of unauthorized access.
In addition to the Safety Check feature, Google has also announced an upcoming feature for Chrome’s tab groups on desktop. This feature will allow users to save tab groups, making it easier for them to access these groups across different devices.
This functionality is particularly useful for individuals who switch between a home PC and a laptop while traveling, as it provides a seamless browsing experience.
Users can now organize their tabs into groups and save them for later use, eliminating the need to manually reopen each tab every time they switch devices.
Google has stated that this tab group feature will be gradually rolled out over the next few weeks, ensuring that users can benefit from it on time.
Meanwhile, the automatic Safety Check feature is currently being deployed to Chrome desktop users worldwide, further strengthening the security of their browsing experience.
With these new developments, Google continues to prioritize user security and convenience, making Chrome a safer and more efficient browser for its users.
