Gmail users: New security alerts are coming

In the coming weeks, Google will begin releasing new security alerts for critical issues affecting individual Google accounts, with the alert appearing in the Google app currently in use.

Most importantly, recipients of Google security alerts - which it forwards to users when it detects that their account may have been compromised - do not need to check their email or phone system alerts for alerts.


Instead, the alert will appear exactly in the Google app they are using, possibly reducing the time it takes to respond and secure the account their.

The new system for providing critical security alerts has more possibilities to approach users since they will only pay attention to one of the Google applications.

Users should see an icon notification next to their avatar in the Gmail search bar. Clicking on the alert leads to a "Critical security alert" page with a "Check activity" button that leads to an explanation of why Google issued the alert.

The new mechanism delivery It can be extremely valuable if it eventually works with Google applications that we use frequently, such as YouTube, Google Maps, Google Maps or Waze.

According to Google, the new in-app security alerts for Google applications are "spoofing resistant".

Google plans to release the limited edition feature in the coming weeks and will expand the availability early next year. The company announced the new feature as part of its contribution to National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

Google's Safe Browsing for Chrome and other browsers protects $ XNUMX billion Appliances, while Google blocks more than 100 million attempts Phishing the day. Google Play Protect, the built-in malware protection system for devices Android, scans over 100 billion applications every day.

Google is also introducing a new privacy check to prevent Google Assistant interactions from being stored in a Google Account. A new "Guest mode" can be activated with a voice command that prevents it Save on his account whatever the user says to the Assistant.

This can be useful when interacting with Google Home and Nest smart speakers and you do not want this information stored in your account.

One downside to Guest Mode is that Google Assistant is not personalized when enabled. THE mode based on controls confidentiality introduced last year that allow users to delete recent Assistant activity from a Google Account with voice commands, such as "Hey Google, delete the last thing I told you" or "Hey Google, through everything I said last week".
