Experienced PC users may be able to know how to distinguish risky download links, but they also have one or two misjudgments in ten times.

In view of this, Google decided to expand its "Advanced Protection Program". It not only uses two-factor authentication, but also protects users' online security with other security measures.

For public figures such as journalists, corporate executives, government workers, etc., their data security is expected to be more effective. Looking ahead, the program also plans to provide malicious download protection for everyone and enable Chrome's cloud synchronization.

For example, when you click Download in your browser, Chrome will warn you every time you scan for malicious files. At the same time, the browser will analyze whether this download is a direct result of the user's interaction with the website, in order to combat the arrogance of the fake download button.

If Chrome determines that the file is particularly dangerous, it can even block the download completely, but it’s unclear whether and when it’s popular with regular Chrome users.
