Early this year, Google introduced a new feature for Chrome desktop version known as ‘Enhanced Safe Browsing’. According to Google, the enhanced safe browsing increases protection from dangerous websites and downloads.

The feature works by sharing ‘uncommon URLs in real-time’ with Google Safe browsing to determine whether the site you are about to visit triggers a red flag or not. With this feature enabled, Google Chrome also sends a small sample of pages and suspicious downloads to discover new threats.

According to Google, the enhanced safe browsing on Chrome reduces the security threats by up to 20% on the desktop. The feature is pretty good for users who don’t have an idea about the internet’s dark side.
