Google will blocking deceptive download buttons

Google announced on its blog that it will be blocking websites which use deceptive content like fake download buttons that appear right next to the real download button. Note that this will be only available on the desktop version of Chrome. Google will also be targeting pop-ups which claim that phones are affected by malware. The blocking will occur via Google’s Safe Browsing tech. In November 2015, Google started blocking sites that used “social engineering attacks” to get you to install unwanted software or reveal sensitive information. “If visitors to your web site consistently see social engineering content, Google Safe Browsing may warn users when they visit the site. If your site is flagged for containing social engineering content, you should troubleshoot with Search Console,” Google added on the blog.
