Warnings about possible phishing attempts and malware that have been detected are turned on automatically.

Some of the messages you can expect to see include, “the site ahead contains malware”.

This means the site you’re trying to access might try to install dubious software onto your device.

If you see “deceptive site ahead,” it’s because there’s suspected phishing on it.

You may also see a “suspicious site” message or “the site ahead contains harmful programs”.

And if the site isn’t secure, you’ll see: “This page is trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources”.

Which ever of the messages appear, think again before dismissing it and proceeding.

If you’re sure the page is safe and wish to ignore the warning, you can tap Details, followed by Visit this unsafe site.

The page will then load.

“Download with caution,” Google says.
