Gmail Introduces New Security Measures

Last week Google announced it’s now in the process of rolling out a Gmail update that adds two new security features. If you use Gmail, you will be seeing these changes in your own email inbox in the coming weeks.

 

 

User Authentication
Following the update, Gmail will attempt to authenticate the identity of the email sender. If the authentication software cannot positively identify the sender, a question mark will be placed over the sender’s user icon (see red arrow in image below):

 

 

Link Authentication
Following the update, if you receive a message with a link to a dangerous site known for phishing, malware, and Unwanted Software, you’ll begin to see warnings like the one shown below when you click on the link.
