How to Enable or Disable Enhanced Safe Browsing in Google Chrome

This brief tutorial shows students and new users how to enhance their privacy and security only by using Google Chrome’s “Enhanced Safe Browsing“.

Google Chrome has many built-in tools and features that provide safe browsing and better privacy online for desktops and mobile devices.

One such tool is Enhanced safe browsing, a feature that comes with Chrome that protects users from malicious sites.

When you’re using this feature, it will predict and warn you about dangerous events before they happen, keep Chrome safe from dangerous apps, and warn you if your passwords are exposed to a data breach.

To get started with enabling Chrome-enhanced safe browsing, follow the steps below:

Enabling enhanced safe browsing

To enable Chrome-enhanced safe browsing, select the three vertical dots menu icon in the top-right corner and choose “Settings” from the menu.

Then go to the “Privacy and Security” section of Settings.

On the desktop computers, click “Security.” On Android mobile devices, it’s called “Safe Browsing.”

When the security page opens, select Enable Enhance protection as shown in the image below.

That should do it!

Enhanced protection provides faster, proactive protection against dangerous websites, downloads, and extensions. Warns you about password breaches. Requires browsing data to be sent to Google.
