As of now, there are hundreds of web browser apps available for the Windows 10 operating system. Out of all those, it was Google Chrome that stands out from the crowd. The web browser is super secure, and it takes security very seriously.
Google Chrome offers few security features that you can turn on from the Settings when it comes to web security. We have already seen features like Password checkup, safe browsing, etc. All of these features make the browser more secure.
Recently, we found another best security feature of Google Chrome that was kept hidden under the settings. The security feature is known as ‘Enhanced Safe Browsing,’ and it predicts and warns you about dangerous events before they happen.
With this feature enabled, your chrome web browser shares even more browsing data with Google. Such extra data helps Google to predict threats better and detect a dangerous event that is likely to happen. However, at the same time, the feature raises a privacy concern.
According to Google, the enhanced safe browsing in Chrome web browser helps you in four different things –
- Predicts and warns you about dangerous events before they happen
- It keeps you safe on Chrome and may be used to improve your security in other Google apps when you are signed in
- Improves security for you and everyone on the web
- Warns you if passwords are exposed in a data breach
