Google has updated the Gmail app for Android with a new anti-phishing security feature that’ll ensure additional security on your email client which will notify users of potential harmful links looming in their inbox.
Now on, whenever users click on a suspicious link in an email, the Gmail app will show a warning prompt which will read ‘Warning — phishing (web forgery) suspected’.
Phishing emails lead you to a website — which usually tries to emulate a credible website — that will try to trick you into disclosing your sensitive financial or personal information.
You never know, they might be under attack. It’s always a good idea to confirm what the link is for from the person who has sent it to you in order to ascertain that you aren’t being led into a malicious trap.
Being safe on the internet is your responsibility, just like it is in real life and being precautious hasn’t ever harmed anyone.
