Chrome has introduced a cool feature for browsing to help you stay safe from malicious sites. To enable Safe Browsing in Google Chrome for Android, you need to go to the Settings menu. From there, open the Security and Privacy option and you will see an option to enable Safe Browsing. Enable that option and start Safe Browsing in Chrome.
Hackers can often trick users into opening risky websites that can drop malicious software onto their devices. To protect computers from such malware, the desktop version of Chrome is already equipped with Safe Browsing.
Now, Google has added this feature to the Android version of Chrome. So, Google Chrome for Android has the same secure browsing feature as the desktop version.
Recently, a close friend of mine unknowingly opened a malicious website while surfing the web. Then he received anonymous notifications, and many random websites opened automatically.
Panicked by this, he switched off his phone. He told me about the problem and suggested I turn on Safe Browsing in Chrome.
