With the Chrome 117 version, which is currently in beta, Google has brought a feature that will protect users against add-ons.
Internet users face many dangers. One of them is undoubtedly the add-ons in the browsers. Although most companies are constantly scanning for this issue, this can sometimes be insufficient. Google Chrome, on the other hand, takes an important step in the field of add-ons.
Google Chrome will warn users of dangerous add-ons
With the Chrome 117 version, which is currently in beta, Google has brought a feature that will protect users against add-ons. The internet browser will now also warn users of this extension when an extension is removed from the Chrome Web Store.Extensions are one of the most used ways to make the browser much more useful. However, these extensions sometimes bring a great danger for users. Some extensions offered through the Web Store can occasionally capture users’ personal information.
Google Chrome, on the other hand, keeps the add-on store under constant control in order to protect users from such software. Dangerous extensions are removed from the store in a short time. However, even if these extensions have been removed from the Web Store, the danger remains for people who already download the add-on.
Such applications, which are seen as dangerous, continue to threaten users who have previously downloaded the add-on. In order to be protected from this threat, users need to remove extensions from their browsers. However, most people can continue to use extensions unaware of this danger.
Google Chrome, which takes action at this point, will now warn its users about the add-ons removed from the store. Thus, users who realize the danger will be able to remove these extensions from their computers.
Google Chrome seems to protect its users against malware in a healthier way with its new add-on warning system. So what do you think about Chrome extensions?
