Google is planning to bring chrome’s enhanced safe browsing option that will help track URLs to monitor dangerous websites on iOS. The new improvements will give users more proactive and tailored protection from phishing malware and other web-based threats to iOs.
Google announced this as part of a collection of browser updates. The feature has previously been available on Android and desktop versions of Chrome, but now Google says it’s coming to iPhone and iPad with its next iOS release.
Alongside the security upgrade, Google is improving the browser’s built-in translation feature on iOS. An updated language identification model will more accurately recognize when visiting a site in a different language that needs to be automatically translated for you to understand it.
Google is also bringing some user interface changes to Chrome Actions, a feature that lets you access options like clearing browsing data or opening an incognito tab by typing (or speaking) into the browser’s address bar. The feature was previously available on Desktop and android and is now rolling out to iOS.
Chrome’s startup page is being updated to prioritize starting a new search or accessing frequently visited sites, in addition to showing recent tabs if you haven’t opened the app in a while. The settings menu is also getting a revamp to make it more scannable and to highlight its most frequently accessed options.
With the latest update for Chrome on iOS, Google lets you set up Google Password Manager as the default Autofill provider on your iPhone. You can then use it to create new passwords and log into any app on your phone. Furthermore, Google is making it easier for users to discover new content or start a fresh search in Chrome for iOS. At the moment, the company has not shared all details about this change, but it says that it will come to Android soon.
