Now you can feel safer while using Gmail. Suspicious links are circulating through phishing emails in the recent days.
Google took few more security steps to make Gmail safer for the users and introduced two new features which alert us before clicking bad links.
Gmail verify and authenticate senders by following various checks. Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is one of them. Gmail uses SPF to identify and record spam messages. Once Google found any unwanted mail from a suspicious sender, it will warn us by displaying a question mark symbol as the profile photo of the originator.
The second feature Google introduced in Gmail is while accessing the Gmail from a web browser if Google found any risky links in the emails you receive, immediately it displays a warning message. You will get “Warning – visiting this web site may harm your computer!” message on the screen. The warning will show in full page.
In recent days people frequently facing trouble with spam and phishing links. Sometimes they are becoming victims of financial frauds and ransomware attacks. In this context, the latest measures taken by Google will protect the users to a maximum extent.
