To prevent users from hacker attacks and phishing attacks, Google announced that warning notifications will be displayed in its Chat application. Several security measures were announced by the tech giant during its recent 2022 I/O developer conference, including warnings about vulnerabilities and recommendations for how to fix them.

In its most recent update, Google added these features to Google Chat to help prevent phishing. The new feature will be available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers and users with personal Google accounts, over the next few weeks. Google implemented new privacy controls to give people more control over how their information is used by its apps. The company also launched its second Beta of its Android 13 operating system, which includes a number of new features and user controls as well as privacy and security updates.

You’ll see banners in Google Chat warning you about phishing and malware messages sent by users with personal Google Accounts. These warning banners, which are already available in Gmail and Google Drive, assist users in protecting their data from malicious actors.

As per the blog post when responding to emails sent from outside your organisation, warning banners appear in Gmail. As you add new external recipients, Android warning banners are now displayed as well. Admins can enable or disable these specific warning labels for their organisation.

For those who are unaware, Google’s new warning banner initially showed up in the workspace account of Gmail to demonstrate attempts to lure those with links and use it for malware, phishing, or ransomware. Google updated the Google Docs banner in late April to warn users that malignant files were believed in some Google Workspace apps that include documents, sheets, slides, and drawings, irrespective of where all the link has been opened.

According to Google, the new security feature of warning banners will be rolling out over a couple of weeks to all users.
