Google Chrome’s New Update Will Warn Users About Mobile Subscription Scams

Chrome 71 is set to be launched in the month of December 2018.

This primarily applies to mobile services, which may charge additional fees without giving at the same time players have complete information about a particular service.

When at this page, you can view interstitials related to SSL, SafeBrowsing, Captive Portal, and Supervised Users. Apps containing programming code produce a fake system warning that sends you to a website where you are tricked into signing up for a subscription service that could cost you hundreds of dollars a month.

Thankfully, Google has just announced plans to fight these "unclear subscription pages" with an upcoming update to the Chrome browser (Android, iOS) scheduled for a few weeks from now.

There are several websites that often bill users unexpectedly, without any fair warning or information about certain subscriptions that are added without the users' knowledge.

Chrome will automatically detect if the subscription data on a webpage is insufficient and show up a warning page where users will be given option to either go back or proceed to the page. It will bear the headlining message: "the page ahead may try to charge you money".

This warning will be displayed on both desktop and mobile browsers. Google also failed to tell parents that entering the password would then open a 30-minute window during which children could make unlimited charges without authorization, according to the FTC. When Google introduced in-app charges to Google Play in 2011, it started billing customers without password requirements or other methods to obtain account holder authorization, the FTC said. It would be impractical for them to manually evaluate all the web pages that need to conform. For example, Chrome 70 will have different warning interstitials than Chrome 71.

So, what's your take on this new protective feature from USA tech giant - Google?
