New Delhi: Technology large Google has stated that it will quickly roll out a brand new security feature that may routinely subject an alert inside the Google app. Users won’t be required to verify e mail or telephones alerts for a suspected hack or a compromise.
The new alerts are immune to spoofing, so the customers can at all times make sure they’re coming from Google.
“Soon we’ll be introducing a redesigned critical alert and a new way of delivering it. When we detect a serious Google Account security issue, we’ll automatically display an alert within the Google app you’re using and help you address it—no need to check email or your phone’s alerts. The new alerts are resistant to spoofing, so you can always be sure they’re coming from us. We’ll begin a limited roll out in the coming weeks and plan to expand more broadly early next year,” Rahul Roy-Chowdhury, Vice President of Product, Privacy at Google wrote in a Google weblog.
Google stated, through the years, it developed new methods to inform individuals about these points and helped considerably enhance their safety.
“In 2015 for example, we started using Android alerts to notify people about critical issues with their Google Accounts, like a suspected hack. Following this change, we saw a 20-fold increase in the number of people that engaged with these new notifications within an hour of receiving them, compared to email,” Roy-Chowdhury wrote.
Currently, Google makes use of Android alerts to inform individuals about critical points with their Google Accounts, like a suspected hack.
“Protecting your online safety requires constant vigilance and innovation. It starts with building the world’s most advanced security infrastructure and pairing it with responsible data practices and privacy tools that put you in control. We’ll continue to advocate for sensible data regulations around the world, including strong, comprehensive federal privacy legislation in the U.S., and make privacy and security advances that keep you safer online,” he added.
