Chrome users ignore warnings when browsing
Who would have thought. When it comes to ignore warnings of the browser, Google Chrome users are far ahead. It does not matter if it is a malware, phishing or SSL warning. You know these warning messages securely, mostly very noticeable and you have to explicitly confirm that you still want to continue with the visit of the landing page. Interesseirt a majority of Chrome users apparently not.
Almost half of the Internet users is on Chrome , this is perhaps also due. It is also interesting that the beta versions of Chrome have the highest click-through rate. Normally one is indeed believe that people who use a beta release, have a little more idea. This phenomenon was to be observed also operating system boundaries.
Google takes this opportunity to max out on the warning page. Even though this could hardly be more striking actually. I can not quite understand it, why you even come up with the idea to ignore such a message. It really is not that only 20 alerts were examined in the study. There were about 25 million, one can say that this is thus quite representative. And even if the warning messages and falsely occur, they do not ignore them, they are finally there for a reason.
The entire study can be in a read 16-page PDF document . What is the situation with you, ignores your warnings this or your going to play it safe and surfs a particular link in this case would prefer not to. You know because people who do not care about those warnings?Viewing:-136
