Google Updating Gmail With New Security Warnings

By 08:11 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments

Google has announced that it's introducing a couple of recent security warnings in its email service Gmail. Starting this week, an email that can’t be authenticated with either Sender Policy Framework (SPF) or DKIM will contain a red-colored question imprint in place of the sender’s avatar.

Moving on, if the email contains link to a malicious site known for phishing, malware, and Unwanted Software, Google will show you a full-page warning when you click on the link.

While the first change will be available on both the Web and Android, the second warning will only show up on Gmail's Web client. Another thing worth mentioning here is that the search giant makes it clear that a warning should not be taken as an absolute confirmation that the email in question is malicious or dangerous.

"But we encourage you to be extra careful about replying to, or clicking on links in messages that you’re not sure about," the company assumed in a blog post. "And with these updates, you’ll have the tools to create these kinds of decisions."
