Google alerts Gmail users of “government backed attacks” in new full page warnings


In a public announcement the company explained that it will now additionally provide full-page warning with instructions about how users can stay safe, even against current government attacks. The users that often see these warnings are usually journalists, policy makers or activists. These users are also most likely to take action and protect their own privacy. This recent change and the general expansion of “safe browsing” notifications are just few of the actions took just in the recent months in order to increase security.

These changes come as most of the world’s leading tech companies started backing civil liberties advocates soon after FBI director made a case for iPhone unlocking before Congress over the encrypted iPhone used by an extremist killer. The violation of privacy is not accepted by any of these supporters no matter what the justification really is.
