Enhanced Protection in Google Chrome protects you from dangerous websites, downloads, and extensions. This is one of the modes available in Google Chrome’s built-in security function called “Safe Browsing”.
The Safe Browsing feature has two modes:
the standard Protection mode, which is turned on by default, and the Enhanced Protection mode, which is a little more advanced.
When Enhanced Protection mode is activated, Chrome can monitor and respond to your online activities. Before you get into trouble, Chrome always checks URLs that aren’t normal, as well as sample pages of the website, and does this in real-time.
Enabling it also makes other Google apps (like Gmail, Drive, and so on) safer. It will offer better protection for your Google account based on a complete view of risks.
Everyone should turn on Chrome’s “enhanced protection” because it is the best way to protect against malware and phishing.
