Google Chrome 62 is now rolling out with changed security behaviors

Now, when Chrome detects that user settings have been changed without your consent, it will offer to restore the modified settings. "It only removes software that doesn't comply with our unwanted software policy".

Google Chrome 62 is now rolling out to Windows, Linux and Mac computers in the stable channel and as expected, the update comes with a bunch of new features targeting developers as well as changed security behaviors as the search giant continues to push for HTTPS adoption. In the past month, this feature has helped millions of people recover from unwanted settings. "Chrome Cleanup addresses unwanted software that can negatively influence a users' experience on the internet". It shows an alert when the browser detects unwanted software and offers a way to remove it. Chrome users have previously been able to use the standalone Chrome Cleanup Tool to remove harmful software. The "Safe Browsing" feature issues warnings to users when they attempt to enter unsafe sites or download risky files. "What a clever way to scan every piece of software you download to your PC and data collect what you're downloading", said a user commenting on news-sharing site Slashdot. The new tool does not replace any general-purpose antivirus, and instead, uses a detection engine developed by IT security company ESET for Chrome's sandbox, with the aim of delivering a safer browsing experience. It now forms part of Cleanup and acts as a constant monitor in the background.

Aside from their partnership with ESET, Google has also made other changes to the Chrome Cleanup Tool.

"We've begun to roll this out to Chrome for Windows users now". When unwelcome software is detected, Rivard explains, the user will see a pop-up dialogue prompting to remove it with a single click - and, by default, reporting details of the infection back to Google. ESET is best known for offering a range of antivirus and security suite solutions for home and business users. This typically occurs when users download and install browser extensions for Chrome.
