Google has always been about keeping their users informed and educated and today they announced another way that they’re planning to do this. Google is now going to begin educating users about web security though some more conventional methods, actual advertisements displayed throughout the country. This is a big step from Google and may be exactly what everyone needs.
Google has begun buying advertisements on city busses, subways, and dozens of other locations in multiple cities to educate people. Google is already responsible for saving millions of users from visiting known malicious sites and now they’re taking it a step further. Google is going to do anything and everything they can to show users the correct way to avoid malicious attacks online. Proper education is always the key to protecting users and if anybody can spread the word effectively Google is definitely the company to do so.
Keep an eye out for Google advertisements in your city, they are all there to help you understand what is and what isn’t safe online. We don’t know exactly what Google is going to be advertising or how they’re going to be spreading the word but it is definitely good news that Google is going to be doing their best to educate the masses. Next time you are using Google make sure to remember just how much they do to help you and the rest of the internet stay safe from unwanted attacks.
