Google Chrome latest update brings advanced security to iOS, Discover Feed, and more

Washington: Several new features will be added to the most recent version of Chrome for iOS, Google announced today as part of a major update to the Chrome web browser.

According to techcrunchThe Google Enhanced Safe Browsing feature, which proactively alerts you to risky web pages, is one of the major new features of the Chrome app. Other updates include changes to the user interface, the option to designate Google’s password manager as the source for autofill, a new language recognition model, and more.

Some of these adjustments have been made for desktop computers on Android and Chrome for months or even years, but they are only being made available on iOS for now.

For example, in this update, Enhanced Safe Browsing, which is accessible on Android and Chrome for desktop computers, is now available on the iPhone and iPad. By sending real-time data to Google Safe Browsing for scanning for threats such as malware, phishing and other threats, the feature can anticipate and alert users to risky websites.

Users of iOS devices will also receive notifications about compromised credentials from Chrome, allowing them to change their username and password as needed.

Users can activate Enhanced Safe Browsing on their iPhone or iPad via Chrome > More > Settings > Enhanced Safe Browsing once the app is updated.

Another iOS feature is “Chrome Actions,” which makes it easy to complete specific tasks without tinkering with the app’s settings. For example, you can type commands such as “Clear browsing data”, “Open incognito tab” or “Set Chrome as default browser” in the browser’s address bar. After that, the app will immediately direct you to the appropriate page.

You don’t need to know the correct command because the Chrome address bar can predict when a user might benefit from a Chrome action based on the words being typed. Both its desktop and Android versions are available from April 2020.

As well as providing the option of a built-in password management system, the update will also enable users to designate Google Password Manager as their autofill provider, competing with other password utilities such as 1Password or Dashlane.

When enabled, Chrome can help users manage and fill in their passwords for any mobile app or website on their iOS device. Before now, this feature was available on Chrome for Android and desktop.

The main screen of Chrome’s interface has been updated to display more than just your latest tabs. You’ll notice that the app now provides access to the same Discover feed of customized content that can typically be found on the home page of the Google mobile app. Google mentions that it will eventually be available on Android Chrome.

Google is also enhancing Chrome’s website translation function, which uses on-device machine learning to make websites available in the language of your choice. As reported by TechCrunch, on iOS, an improved language detection model will be released that correctly determines the language of the page you’re viewing and whether or not it requires translation.

Finally, based on the Chrome 103 App Store release notes, additional minor changes have been found. Additionally, you can now download and add iCalendar files to your calendar, remove duplicate New Tab Page tabs in the background, and manage camera and microphone permissions for specific websites using the camera and microphone icons in the address bar. Huh.

A few changes have been made to Chrome’s three-dot (overflow) menu to better highlight the Reading List and Bookmarks tabs, which are now located at the top of the list.
