Google now lets you reports deceptive sites with a new Chrome extension

Google is leading a campaign for safe browsing as it today launched a new Chrome extension that allows you to flag or report suspicious sites for inclusion in the Google’s Safe Browsing index, which is used by Chrome and a number of third-party browsers.
Google is also adding a new warning feature in chrome which will notify you and puts up a roadblock before you visit a site that may trick you into giving up your credentials or download malware.
This feature adds another layer into Google’s safe browsing program where people can actively contribute to the program by reporting malicious sites they come across. Before this feature, only Google’ crawlers crawled the web and looked for suspicious sites to add to the program. The new extension lets you flag sites that the system hasn’t detected yet. The extension is easy, simple to use and gives you the option to include screenshots, the referrer chain that led you to the site and the DOM content of your browser. You get to choose which one of these to send and the screenshot option is off by default.
The extension shows a flag in your browser bar that changes color based on how legitimate it thinks a given site is. It’s not exactly as useful a warning as it turns orange for any site that isn’t a top 5,000 site.
The warning is available in Chrome 75, as Google notes that it is meant to keep you from visiting sites that are trying to trick you with deceptive URLs like “” for “”. Chrome will now bring up a full-screen roadblock to warn you about these sites.
“This new warning works by comparing the URL of the page you’re currently on to URLs of pages you’ve recently visited, If the URL looks similar, and might cause you to be confused or deceived, we’ll show a warning that helps you get back to safety.” the team explains.
