Google Chat adds warning banners to protect against phishing attacks

Date:

Resolved Google Google has announced that it will replace chat hangers with banners warning you of potential phishing and malware attacks coming from personal accounts. This change in Google Chat is the latest extension of Google’s efforts to prevent phishing.

During the 2022 I / O Developer Conference, Google discussed a number of security measures implemented to improve user security, including warnings against potential security issues and suggestions for fixing them.

Google also plans for other security measures, such as extended two-step verification, ad customization, and additional data protection.

New Google Alert banners first appeared on Gmail’s Workspace accounts to indicate attempts to lure someone with a link that could be used for malware, phishing, or ransomware.

In late April, Google expanded its Docs banners, warning users that many Google Workspace apps (documents, sheets, slides and drawings) contain malicious files.

This new feature will be released in the next couple of weeks and will be available for personal Google Accounts and all Google Workspace customers.
