Google rolls out Chrome 71, which takes aim at scam websites

It has been announced by Google that the latest version of Google Chrome the Chrome 71, is now being released for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems, the objective of which is to keep deceptive/scam websites away from users.

The latest version of Google’s browser was being worked on over the past few months and has just left the beta programme. The Chrome team is delighted to announce the promotion of Chrome 71 to the stable version for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. This will be released in the coming days/weeks.

The tech giants wrote in a blog that:

“Chrome 71.0.3578.80 contains a number of fixes and improvements — a list of changes is available in the log. Watch out for upcoming Chrome and Chromium blog posts about new features and big efforts delivered in 71”

In the latest version of Google Chrome, users are going to be notified when a site appears to be a scam or abusive or hiding the real costs and terms for a transaction.

With Chrome 71, users don’t have to worry about scam/deceptive websites because the websites that fall under Google’s criteria of abusive would be filtered out.

These include web experiences that are not only limited to ads, such as auto-redirects that occur without users doing anything and takes the user to some other website or trick-to-click experiences like a warning notification that actually leads to an ad or another website’s landing page.

However, this new version of Chrome 71 is going to help users a lot as it is going to protect users from any kind of scam or something like that.
