Chrome Warnings Bound To Pop Up When Users Try To Download Insecure Files

For less tech-savvy users, fishy downloads usually outwit them and the new update appears to be a strict safeguarder. 

In order to enhance the overall security, Google Chrome is going to launch a new protection layer that keeps users away from insecure content while they download un-encrypted content via HTTPS via other secure pages. As projected, Chrome 82 will initially be responsible for warning users about the insecure files before they decide to continue downloading them. In the meantime, Google also works on other future updates that will block such download sessions without warning users.

In particular, Chrome will send notifications to users about less dangerous insecure types of downloads following a planned schedule, including warning text and images. These warnings will no longer be available once Chrome releases new updates to shut down insecure downloads by the end of 2020.

Not only will the desktop version of Chrome receive these updates, but the Chrome app on mobile will also get the same. However, Chrome for mobile will be one version behind the version of desktop Chrome. As stated in a blog post, mobile apps come with better security in terms of protecting the device from malicious downloads, and developers will have more time to work on other protection features for desktop users when they have to set face against malware.
