Google has just recently announced its newest update to its browser software, and to the chrome apps on all mobile device operating systems. Included in the list of software updates are changes encompassing updates to further enforce the protection of its users that may potentially be entering dangerous or malicious websites. The software will take a more proactive approach in prompting alerts to combat and minimize the risk of coming across scammy websites.
Moreover, Google has revamped some features in its interface, including a new Google password manager system, more options for selecting different languages, and more.
While some of these changes have already been implemented on most devices most of these updates are making their premiere on the IOS devices.
Google will be implementing Enhanced Safe Browsing to IOS devices, a feature that has been available for android and pc devices for a while. This Enhanced Safe Browsing collects data from a wide range of users in order to more effectively predict whether a website poses a risk to a user’s personal data before entering. Enhanced Safe Browsing will protect users from malware, phishing, and almost all viruses.
Further updates to password recovery and account access have been made more convenient for users who have lost or have had their credentials compromised.
Enhanced Safe Browsing can be accessed on IOS devices by taking the following steps:
From Google Chrome > Settings > Enhanced Safe Browsing.
Another benefit offered by the most recent version of Google coming to all IOS devices is the ability to search for software actions directly without having to maneuver through multiple menus and steps to get to the desired action. This feature is referred to as “Chrome Actions”. It gives the software operator a search bar to look for actions directly. Examples of these actions include “Clear Browsing Data” and “Open a New Tab.” After clicking on the action it will transport the user directly to the intended page. Another convenient feature of the “Chrome Actions” is the software’s ability to recognize what the user is likely searching for. In this scenario, the search bar will automatically fill the inquiry and direct the user to the most likely action they desire.
Moreover, the update includes revision and reboots to the chrome browser main page when first opening the browser. In addition to the list of recent and frequently used tabs, Google will display more media covering recent news and tailored content derived from the user’s search habits to fill in the blank spaces providing more value and websites to visit the users.
Furthermore, updates to the translation feature offered by Google progresses the software’s ability to recognize the user’s preferred language and implement it across any and all sites the user finds themselves entering without having to manually click the translate setting itself. This makes it easier to navigate through websites that use different languages than the operator.
Other convenient changes to the google chrome experience include being able to better manage camera and microphone accessibility in the address bar itself. The ability to transfer iCalendar data directly into your google calendar so that there is a shared stream of data across the platforms. Moreover, popular actions like the bookmarks tab and reading list have now been made a little more obvious in positioning so that users will not have to navigate as much to reach these options.
Overall the new updates and reboots From Google will just serve to make a few small things a bit more convenient for the user. Finally, the update’s primary purpose is to further protect users from malicious interactions and strive to make data theft a thing of the past. Stay tuned to learn about more software updates across the world’s top digital platforms.
