In Google Chrome appeared antivirus

The most useful functionality of this new service integrated with Google Chrome is no doubt in the ability of the browser to detect if the search engine has been changed by an extension to be malicious. Google's Hijacked Settings Detection alerts you any time something you've downloaded attempts to access a setting it shouldn't have permission to.

Each of this will prevent you from getting into any illegal links, unwanted and undetectable software download will now immediately trigger alerts for its users.

"We can now detect and remove more unwanted software than ever before, meaning more people can benefit from Chrome Cleanup".

Some extensions may change your settings without notifying the user. If unwanted content is identified during the installation process, a notification gives the user the option to remove the unwanted content, cancel, or see details about what has been identified as a threat, the post noted.

Outside of a redesign, Chrome Cleanup got a technology upgrade.

The company is targeting malware and malicious extensions that modify search results to redirect users to unintended pages, inject ads, and lock users on ad-filled sites. "It only removes software that doesn't comply with our unwanted software policy". Google rushes to take note of that Chrome Cleanup isn't a catch-all antivirus arrangement, however; it will just evacuate augmentations that abuse Google's Unwanted Software Policy, so regardless you'll need to ensure that you are very fearless of customary antivirus programming set.

The new features didn't excite some users, though.

Google has released an updated desktop version of the Chrome browser for Windows.

A quick easy way for Chrome Windows users to perform cleanups and stay safer online.


If you are using Google Chrome 62 on macOS, you'll notice that various buttons now match the native style of the OS with a fresh color in the background, border radius as well as padding.

This feature has been available for the past month, with Google noting that it has helped millions of people restore their settings.
