Google: Consider Yourself Warned

Posted on 2.23.2015

The Internet has never been known as a terribly "safe" environment, but that's not stopping tech companies like Google from trying to make it so (and as a Web user, you should be thankful).

In addition to its recent efforts to clean up and clear out "unwanted software" from its search results (and advertising), Google has just announced that in addition to showing warnings before users download software when using Chrome, the browser will now show a warning before a user visits a site that may (knowingly or unknowingly) encourage downloads of unwanted software.

Google advised that site owners, SEOs, and websites register their site with Google Webmaster Tools to stay informed of when the engine finds something that leads people to download unwanted software.
