How to use Google Chrome instead of antivirus?
Over the past 9 plus years, Google Chrome has become one of the best and most popular web browsers in the world. One reason for its rapid growth was Google’s attention to security.

Toll-free numbers for receiving SMS, manage to be the first to register for social networks.

Protecting Chrome users from malware remains a priority today. You may not have understood that Chrome’s ability to protect you from ransomware, copyists, and other malware extends beyond just the browser itself.

Believe it or not, Chrome can actually scan your entire computer for malware ... just like a stand-alone antivirus program does.

How to do it?

Open Chrome (or open a new tab if Chrome is already running) and enter the following line in the address bar at the top: chrome: // settings / cleanup.

When you do this, you should see the following picture (image above).

Click the bottom button and Chrome will start scanning your computer. Background malware detection is actually carried out by ESET, a recognized information security company from Slovakia.

It is worth knowing that the scanner is not just looking for things like ransomware and other trojans or viruses. Google’s policy is to search for all kinds of “unwanted software,” which may include applications that you may not know what you installed, applications that upload your data to remote servers without your knowledge, or even applications that not honest in what they do.

Google lists its criteria on this page if you need more information.

Chrome Cleanup is a convenient additional layer of protection against malware. If you use Chrome to browse the web, it’s worth checking from time to time to just get an independent opinion on the security status of your computer.

Remember that Chrome Cleanup is an on-demand scanner. It does not provide real-time protection like a traditional antivirus application does.
