Enhanced safe browsing is a familiar thing for Chrome desktop users. Now, Google has brought this advanced feature security feature to Android. This feature from Chrome minimizes the security risk by 20% on the desktop and 25% on Android which is also a pretty significant number. So, here we check the steps involved in enabling the enhanced safe browsing feature.
Enable Enhanced Safe Browsing In Simple Steps
- As a first thing, you need to keep your Chrome application up to date. For that head to the Google Play store and update your Chrome to the latest version.
- Now, open chrome://flags and search for “safe browsing”. Here enable two Chrome Flags, “Safe Browsing Enhanced Protection on Android” and “Security Section on Android”. Once you are done with that, then tap on the ‘relaunch’ option.
- Now head to Chrome’s settings page, and move to ‘Privacy and Security’. Here you will find the safe browsing option at the end. Open it.
- Here, you will find three options in this, Enhanced, Standard, and No Protection. Tap on Enhanced Protection and that is it, you are done with the setup.
- After enabling it, check the URLs in real-time and it will improve your overall security across Google products.
- You also have another option named Standard Protection. It is enabled by default. But one thing with this website is that it won’t check the website within Chrome’s blocklist.
