Gmail Anti-Phishing Tools Come to iOS

Posted by at 11:49 am on August 11, 2017

Google today said its Gmail app for iOS devices now relies on similar anti-phishing technology already available to Gmail for Android.

Google began using a new algorithm earlier this to spot possible phishing attacks and emails with suspicious links. Google will spend extra time evaluating emails in transit to see if they are in fact phishing attacks before delivering them to end users’ inboxes.

Google will also warn users of potentially harmful links buried in emails. It will display one warning for suspected bad links and a second warning for known bad links in order to prevent people from clicking.

This change is rolling out to all Gmail users for iOS over the next two weeks.
