Google just added these antivirus features to Chrome for Windows

19 October 2017

The function adds built-in features to combat malicious code. Google's Hijacked Settings Detection alerts you any time something you've downloaded attempts to access a setting it shouldn't have permission to.

Chrome Cleanup is meant to complement the Safe Browsing protection, and help users browse the web safely and without interruption.

Seven killed, 22 injured in roadside blast in Quetta
Mineral-rich Balochistan, where Gwader is located, has been plagued for decades by a separatist insurgency and sectarian killings. Death toll might further rise as seven of the injured people were in critical condition, said hospital sources.

Under the hood, we upgraded the technology we use in Chrome Cleanup to detect and remove unwanted software.

Google also specifies that only programs that do not comply with the rules established for Chromium are considered malicious and are thus removed by the Chrome Cleanup.

This integration of the new "sandboxed engine" doesn't replace antivirus on Windows as it only targets and removes software that violates Google's unwanted software policy. "But in some cases, the changes are so severe that they can make the web unusable-people are redirected to unwanted sites full of ads, and it can be next to impossible to navigate away from these pages", Rivard noted.

Google estimates that the new security feature will help "tens of millions" of Chrome users deal with security problems in the next few days.

The search engine giant said: "We can now detect and remove more unwanted software than ever before, meaning more people can benefit from Chrome Cleanup".

A quick easy way for Chrome Windows users to perform cleanups and stay safer online.
