Safer surfing, test surfing settings, report phishing

Google Chrome is currently the most used web browser. With our three tips, you can make it safer, check the function of the security settings and also contribute to the protection of other people. […]

For a while now, Google Chrome has been by far the most used web browser. Would you like to make him safer and try out how he reacts in critical situations?
Secure Chrome more strongly – Open the settings at the top right via the three-dot menu. Go to Privacy and Security, followed by Security. If you have not changed the delivery status of Chrome, the protection level is set to standard protection. Here you can switch to Advanced Safe Browsing for a little more security.

How does your web browser react when it encounters infected files or similar security issues? No one who is at Trost would try this with real pest sites! So that no one has to, there is the testsafebrowsing page. It is prepared with harmless examples that only look to the browser as if they were malware or phishing pages.

Some of the tests also work under Firefox; unfortunately, the website is only available in English:

For example, click on the first blue link at “Should show a phishing warning: link”.

Both Chrome and Firefox detect a phishing attempt in the link and block access to the page with a red warning message.

Google offers not only a web browser and a search engine, but also cloud storage (Google Drive) and other services. The safe browsing insights are incorporated into all Google products. If you come across a phishing link, you can report it to Google.

We particularly recommend doing this if the phishing link refers to a Google-owned service such as Google Docs. Then Google can block the abusive customer and remove their content.
