Google's new notifications for Gmail warn you of security risks
In Chrome, attempting to visit a less-than-savory Website earns you a notification screen, and Google is bringing that to Gmail. Now when you try to click a link Google knows is bad from your Gmail inbox, it will warn you before you even get to the browser; a helpful feature for those who may not be using Chrome.
For incidents of possible state-sponsored hacks, Gmail has a dedicated pop-up notification. Though it admits that less than 0.1 percent of users ever run into these attacks, Google feels it warrants immediate action on our part to better protect ourselves.
