Google’s Gmail users warn more clearly stands for hackers




Google warns Gmail users now clearly hackers acting on behalf of a government. The new warning should attract more attention than the old, which already showed since 2012 the company.

The new warning comes over to stand the whole page rather than just in a line below the address bar. The old warning remains, but only in conjunction with the more notable new method. Should the user ignore the message than Google warns that it is possible that the attackers spy include the user and can access his or her data.

The warning states that it is possible that attackers government-backed attempt to steal the user’s password. To prevent this, Google recommends to enable two-stage authentication and to set up a security key. Also stated in the message that there is a chance that it is a false alarm, and that less than 0.1 percent of users will see the warning ever.

Google showed since 2012 another warning of the same situation, but considers the company now seems inadequate. The end of 2015 did include Twitter and Facebook users are also known to warn when they suspect that hackers try to gain access to a government-sponsored account.
