We’re used to running antivirus scans on our computers, but this doesn’t cover your online safety. Google Chrome has a tool that you can use to do similar checks to make sure you are browsing the web safely. How to do a security check in Chrome.
Open the Google Chrome web browser on your Windows 10, Mac, Chrome OS, or Linux computer and tap the three-dot menu button in the top corner.
Go to “Settings” in the drop-down menu.
Scroll down to find the Security Clearance option. Click the “Check Now” option in blue.
Google Chrome starts the “Safety Check” test. It can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes.
Make sure the browser app is up to date to protect yourself from the latest internet viruses and that any third-party extensions installed are harmless.
When the security check is complete, Chrome will bring up shortcuts for anything that needs your urgent attention, such as: B. Verification of compromised credentials.
You can also run the security check again after following the recommended steps to ensure that your new security settings are in place.
