I know many of you use Google Chrome. Despite the flaws – I’m talking about how it consumes RAM – it is a good browser with a great ecosystem with extensions.
And it’s pretty sure.
But you can do something to make it safer.
Like clicking on Security check button.

So, where is it Security check button? The easiest way to find it is to type it in the address field and press enter:
chrome: // settings / security Check
Alternatively, you can go to Settings and click Security check on the left side.
The Security check the button is there. Clicking on it does four things:
- Checking for Google Chrome updates
- Checks if any of your stored passwords have been compromised
- Checks if Safe Browsing is enabled and gives you a link to adjust these settings
- Checking for malicious extensions (not a bad idea given the recent debacle with The Great Suspender)
If you want more protection, you can activate Improves protection under Safe surfing, and it will give you much greater security, but it involves agreeing to have your browsing data sent to Google.
Implement one Security check is fast and gives you extra mind.
Do it now.
