Google has always been one of the promptest and most effective tech companies when it comes to managing product security. One of their creations that is getting an important security refresh this week is G Suite. According to the G Suite developers blog, the team behind the project are constantly working on securing user data. This can be seen in how often the security system of G Suite is getting update. Well, G Suite just received brand new security protections, and their main goal is to reduce unverified apps-related risks. Keep reading to find out more.
Say Goodbye to Unverified App Risks
Unverified apps are quite risky, but some of them are actually good and it’s worth to install them. So, how can we protect ourselves from those few harmful ones? Well, in the case of G Suite, developers saw it fitting to employ a system based on new pop up screen warnings that replace the ‘error’ one that used to precede unverified apps. Now, there is a screen that asks for permission to proceed and lets users know that the app is unverified.
So, you proceed with the app at your own risk. G Suite is doing its due diligence to let you know, the rest is up to you. The best choice would be never to proceed opening an unverified app, but as we said above it’s all up to you. Of course, this warning screen might not be enough to protect us, but there is little else that can be done in this case. So, G Suite users better take notice and act accordingly.
What about you? Do you use G Suite, and if yes, what do you think about this new security protection? Let us know in the comment section below, we’d love to hear as many opinions as possible.
