Google has something new again: Warning
Google Chrome has a new extension called
"Suspicious Site Reporter"
and flags all sites that they believe are suspicious.
It must lead to a "safer internet".
The flag changes color the moment something strange is going on, according to Google.
- Green is okay
- Orange is suspicious
- Red is Hooo Nooo!
You can send info to Google from sites you believe they are not safe, and send screenshots too. Google says that they will warn visitors when an URL is changed, or when there might be phishing pratices on a website. That's not wrong, I think... but sensitive for frauduleus actions
But Google goes one step further
From now on, with every user of this extension in the browser, all websites are flagged orange via this extension if the website is not one of the
5000 most visited websites
Are we all colored for this moment!
I have activated this extension and removed it again, you can do so too and report this extension as abuse!
