The Chrome update will make mobile browsing safer

Google plans to introduce additional security measures for users of the Android Chrome version, making mobile web browsing safer.

Mobile phone users will soon have access to some of the security controls currently only available in the Chrome version for desktop.


Currently available only as a hidden setting in the Chrome Canary Experimental version for Android, the Safety Check feature of the browser has been launched in the mobile version of the app. This security tool performs important tests to ensure that your browser settings are optimized.

The feature allows you to perform three checks to ensure that your browser is as secure as possible. The first test checks that you have enabled the Safe Browsing feature to protect yourself from dangerous websites.

Second, Safety Check will scan them passwords stored in the browser to see if they have been compromised.

Finally, it will check if you have the latest version of Chrome installed, so that you have all the latest security updates.

However, the Android version of Safety Check is slightly different from the desktop version. Typically, the scan checks for dangerous software add-ons installed browsing, but since the version for Android phones does not support extensions, this specific function is not necessary.

If you want to try Safety Check on Android for Chrome, you need to download the Canary build of the browser. This experimental version of the browser can be downloaded from Play Store, but Google warns that: “This version has not been tested. It may be unstable or it may not run sometimes. ”

With the Chrome Canary installed, you can enable Safety check by going to chrome: // flags, by searching for "Safety Check" and selecting "Enabled" from the drop-down menu in the "Safety Check on Android" section. After restarting Chrome you can go to "Settings" and you will find that Safety Check is now available - just click the "Check now" button to make the tests you.
