ESET new tool to keep Chrome clean
Chrome Cleanup protects devices from unwanted software
Hiding in the sites we visit are any number of malicious codes ready to unsuspectingly install on our devices.
ESET wants to prevent this from happening and has launched Chrome Cleanup, a new scanner and cleaner for Google Chrome designed to help users browse the web safely and without interruption. Chrome Cleanup will be available for all Google Chrome users running on Windows.
Chrome Cleanup will alert Google Chrome users to potential threats when it detects unwanted software. Google Chrome will then give users the option to remove the software. Chrome Cleanup operates in the background, without visibility or interruptions to the user. It deletes the software and notifies the user once the clean-up has been successfully completed.
“Using the internet should always be a smooth and safe experience for everyone,” said Juraj Malcho, chief technology officer at ESET. “For three decades, ESET has developed a number of security solutions that allow users to safely enjoy their technology and to mitigate a variety of cyber threats. Chrome Cleanup addresses unwanted software that can negatively influence a users’ experience on the internet.”
Chrome Cleanup is included in the latest version of Google Chrome.
