Google Chrome Boosts Security with New Safety Check Feature
Google just spiced things up for Chrome users on desktop with some cool new features, and one of them is a game-changer in the security department.
Meet Safety Check – your virtual guardian angel. This handy feature keeps an eye out for any shady business with your passwords, giving you a heads-up if they’ve been compromised. It’s also got your back on malware, sniffing out any dubious extensions you might have unknowingly installed. Safety Check isn’t a one-time deal; it’s your silent security sidekick, running in the background and popping up whenever there’s something you need to know.
Safety Check takes a page from Android’s book by tidying up your cyber space. It’ll revoke permissions from websites you’ve abandoned, like that ex who won’t stop asking for your location. It’s all about keeping things neat and secure.
Wait, there’s more! Safety Check goes above and beyond, asking if you’re tired of notifications from sites you haven’t visited in ages. It’s like a decluttering guru for your online life.
And Chrome doesn’t stop there. They’ve also given memory saver mode a makeover, providing more deets when you hover over tabs. Plus, there’s a nifty new setting for speedy decisions on which sites can go into hibernation when you’re not using them.
Looking ahead, Google’s got another trick up its sleeve – the ability to save your tab groups, complete with custom names and colors.
In the tech world, where cool features abound, Chrome’s not just about bells and whistles. They recently patched a serious zero-day vulnerability, the eighth one this year!
