Google launched the Chrome 80 stable Android and desktop update recently. Google introduced several additional features as part of the update. The new feature is part of Google’s HTTPS web security strategy.

Google announces that Google will soon block “insecure” downloads in an effort to make downloading files safer. This goal is backed by a comprehensive action plan in which Chrome takes steps to restrict “mixed downloads of content.”

the company announced today that Chrome will increasingly ensure that stable (HTTPS) pages will only download the safe files.

In the first step, users are warned that they will access files from unsafe subsources on secure pages. Chrome actually does not warn users of how the privacy and protection of the consumer may be compromised. It changes with the new Chrome 82 that is set to be released in April.

Google says it will target the most unsafe executables (e.g: .exe,.apk, etc.) for users. Finally, more file forms such as .zip, .iso, .pdf and.mp3 will be protected in subsequent releases.

By October 2020, Google is expected to release its 6th update (Chrome 86) to block all downloads of mixed content. You should check the table above to learn more about Google Chrome’s upcoming releases in order to make downloads easier.

Google says progress is incremental to allow developers to minimize risks and to have ample time to update their sites so that potential constraints are avoided and their users fully protected.
