Google India Launched new Initiative for Web Safety

Google India launched a public initiative called #SecurityCheckKiya to protect young and users new to the web from account hijacking, on February 5, 2018.

This is an initiative taken up by Google India to safeguard Android devices from malicious apps and secure personal data of users in case they lose their devices.

“Just like in the physical world, users in India should take precautions while engaging with the online world. While security is built into all of Google services, keeping the web safe for everyone is a shared responsibility,” said Sunita Mohanty, Director, Trust and Safety.

This information will soon be available on the Google homepage, encouraging users to take the first step of Security Check on Safer Internet Day which will be celebrated on February 6.

“Through our initiative, we want to nudge Internet users to take action to safeguard themselves, because the first step to a safer Internet starts with them. We are asking users to get started on their journey by securing their data and devices by asking them #SecurityCheckKiya”, Mohanty added.

Users are required to simply click “Google Security” to automatically have their phones scanned for any vulnerability and also providing them with guidelines to keep their account safe.

Google Play Protect scans all apps for malware before and after you install them and is automatically enabled on any device.
