The tech giant announced that its browser is getting an automatic download blocking feature for malware. Google confirmed that the new functionality will appear in the Chrome version Canary.
Google also reported that all versions of its Chrome will soon automatically block downloads while notifying users in a message at the bottom of their screen. People will be able to “dismiss” the abovementioned message in case the search giant is wrong about the suspicious website, but it unclear whether Internet users will be allowed to stop or revert the block.
Google explained that criminals regularly make attempts to trick users into installing and running malicious software. Normally it is done by bundling malware with free screensavers, video plugins, or even fake security updates. In all those cases, Google Chrome is increasingly being targeted, as its audience is rapidly growing.
The malware often block users’ ability to change their settings back and make themselves hard to uninstall, thus keeping people trapped in an undesired state. The tech giant called Canary “the most bleeding-edge official version of Google Chrome and a kind of a mix between Chrome dev and the Chromium snapshot builds”.
In other words, it seems that Google is very serious about integrating this feature into the browser. The very fact that Google has officially announced it means that it will be headed there at some point, rather than disappearing as vaporware.
