Google has announced that it will now also start warning users about deceptive embedded content on websites they visit. In a blog post published yesterday, the company said that it’s expanding Safe Browsing capabilities to protect users from things like « a deceptive download button, or an image ad that falsely claims your system is out of date. »
The Mountain View, California-based company said an embedded content on a web page will be deemed social engineering if it pretends to act, or look and feel, like a trusted entity (like your own device or browser, or the website itself), or tries to trick you into doing something you’d only do for a trusted entity — like sharing a password or calling tech support.
The search giant also shared some examples of what will now be considered as deceptive content. Head to the Source link below to take a look at them.
