Not all websites we navigate are safe. Only some ads are populated, not real ads, and some ads are full of malware that can infect your computer at any time. However, the good news is that Google has introduced a modern Chrome extension that allows users to report sites they think are suspicious.
Google can’t actually delete any sites through the reporting site, or at least not deletes sites that don’t host their services and can’t remove them from search results, which means users are less likely to click on their links. Given the sheer size of Google, any changes they make will undoubtedly have an impact on the site and will have an impact on it.
According to Google, By clicking this icon, you can now report an unsafe website to Safe Browsing for more isolated evaluation. If you include the site to the Safe Browsing list, it will not merely support Chrome users. And it equally protects other browsers and users across the network. You can download and install the Site Reporter extension from the Chrome Web Store.
