In this challenging moment, Google’s team is fully involved in applying and testing the new security policy on Chrome, so that they could win the trust of the users forever.
In this tactic, the chrome will only display the name of the domain as an approach to assist people in identifying fake websites.

Domain names and web URLs are one of the most significant basic forms of a web platform that allow us quickly to know about the business and location. Sometimes, these URLS become the way to mislead and the scammers and hackers often build up fake websites that seem probable through URLs with typos (For example unusual subdomains ( or hyphenated domains ( Innocent users visit these URLs considering these URLs refer to the lawful companies before being trapped into providing their secret credentials like USER name, Password, and mobile number etc.

Indeed, internet attacks have been muddying the web oceans now these days. Cyber hackers generally use different tactics to change a web URL imperceptibly, by adding the extra letter here and there or replacing letters for characters such as Cyrillic or Greek types. Hence, the change in Chrome is required.

Needy users can have the complete URL of malicious websites.

As mentioned above, this special feature of Chrome will be intended to restrict phishing and sting attempts by cyber hackers who satire websites of world-famous brands and companies in what is a verified tactic for influencing many audiences into wrong-trust that the sites are legal.
In a recent survey organized by Google and Illinois University, around 70% of users were hoodwinked when a misleading brand name was part of the URL.

Wrapping Up
