With the start of this week, Google announced an update for the Gmail application. This new update will come with anti-phishing security features added. This update is for all the users of Android devices. From now on, when a Gmail user will click on an external link, Gmail will prompt a warning to make the user conscious about security. A message will display saying that:

“The site you are trying to visit has been identified as forgery, intended to trick you into disclosing financial, personal or other sensitive information.”

Earlier, we have seen that Google has updated many apps including Voice and Maps. All these are due to increased competition among the software developers across the world. The phishing scams have grown a lot, and they confront people with many security concerns. That is why all the developers are working hard to introduce new security features.

Here, it is important to mention that these security measures are not enough to give full-proof security. The users have to think a lot before clicking any link. This warning will serve as an alert, and many users will find it safe not to open the link. Google also makes it clear that all affected emails may not be dangerous. Still, the user should be conscious while clicking the link of which he is not 100% sure.

From now on, all the Gmail users will have a security tool that will save them from phishing and scams. It will not stop them from opening the link but will warn them before opening. It is only released for the Android users. Google has not given any clue about the availability of this update for other operating systems. Hopefully, after receiving positive reviews from the users, it may be available soon for all other platforms.
