Chrome 71 will alert you of suspicious charges!

Google will alert users to suspicious sites mobile subscription forms. It seems that whenever users try to access pages that contain suspicious subscription forms, they are costing much more than they thought.

Google will take a number of steps to break down the code of websites that are missing data for extra charges and accounts from users.

From time to time, several forms have been found on the internet, which ask the user to give his personal number and then a charge is charged to his fixed or mobile phone bill every month.

Under normal circumstances and in accordance with consumer protection laws, websites containing such forms are required to refer to any charges.

Chrome 71

However, in recent years, due to the widespread use of smartphones, there is a tendency to lower the aforementioned laws as more and more users are using mobiles to pay. Many websites with mobile subscription pages seduce the user for the exact details of payments using very small letters and a similar color to the background of the page. Also, some websites do not even tell the user how they have been charged.

How to mobilize Google;

After the release of Chrome 71, the Google will attempt to recognize such sites and alert users to any risks whenever they buy or subscribe to a new service. The warning will be by displaying a picture that says «This page ahead may try to charge you money». By the beginning of December, we expect the new security measure.
