Posted on Feb 10, 2020

It will be possible to download files very quickly from secure pages only in Google's web browser Chrome.

This announcement was made by the company.

According to the company, it will ensure that secure files can be downloaded from secure pages only, while downloads from mixed content files or non-HTTPS pages will be blocked.

The move is intended to enable the downloading of malware-protected content to ensure the protection of users, and to end support for unsafe downloads.

This update will be introduced in Google Chrome 81 and users will first be warned about mixing content and then blocking it, while downloading all the mix content in Chrome 86 version will be downloaded in October this year. , This update will be introduced later on mobile platforms.

According to the company, unsafe downloads are harmful to privacy and security, and anyone can see what a user has downloaded, or a hacker can replace a download with a harmful file.

It said that we expect all unsaved downloads to be stopped but in Chrome, users will not be aware of which files are unsafe, so now they will block such downloads first.
