Google has always dedicated itself to make the internet surfing a lot safer, and they are taking these efforts to the next level. Generally, Google puts a remark “The site ahead contains harmful programs” whenever it sees something malicious. Google is upgrading its Safe Browsing warnings and now it will consider malicious those sites that it calls “repeat offenders”. Google Safe Browsing helps Google users by protecting them from dangerous sites or dangerous download files.
What do you mean by Repeat offenders? According to Google, “Repeat Offenders are websites that repeatedly switch between compliant and policy-violating behavior for the purpose of having a successful review and having warnings removed.”
Google says on its official blog, “Once Safe Browsing has determined that a site is a Repeat Offender, the webmaster will be unable to request additional reviews via the Search Console for 30 days, and warnings will continue to show to users. When a site is established as a Repeat Offender, the webmaster will be notified via email to their registered Search Console email address”.
Google is continuously changing its policies and practices in order to counter emerging cyber threats. This can be considered as Google’s comprehensive step towards protecting their users.
