Google Ensures Safe Browsing For Users With The New Repeat Offenders Violation
Do you notice the warnings being displayed on your screen about malicious or dangerous sites? Google's Safe Browsing is protecting users from such sites since 2005. Now, the tech company has added the new Repeat Offenders violation that will make browsing even more secure.
Safe Browsing's Repeat Offenders
Normally, a user gets a warning when it tries to access dangerous sites and malicious download files. Google's Safe Browsing also allows webmasters to know if their websites are being compromised. Such knowledge will help them identify the problem and eventually resolve it. In turn, the visitors of their sites will be able to browse it safely.
Google explained that Repeat Offenders are those sites that repeatedly switch between compliant and noncompliant behavior within a short window time.
How Does It Work?
According to the Computer World, a site labeled as Repeat Offender will continue to display in-Chrome warnings for a minimum of 30 days. Webmasters have to wait for the 30 days to elapse before they could request a review to their websites.
The benefit of this is to protect users from harmful sites. It will also encourage sites to play by the rule. There will be a risk once they violate it. This will answer the previous problem who took advantage of Google's less strict rule.

The next browser in the ranking is Microsoft's Internet Explorer with 23.13 percent. The trend for Internet Explorer continues to decline. This is contrary to the rise of Chrome browser users. It is followed by Firefox at 11.14 percent. Microsoft's more recent browser Edge is only at 5.26 percent.
