Here’s how to protect yourself from rogue redirect ads right now in ChromeCorbin Davenport / Android Police - 2 years ago
  • Earlier today, Google formally announced a feature that would keep rogue advertisements from taking over the browser and redirecting you to another page.
  • The company said the feature would go live in Chrome 64, which is currently in the Canary and Dev channels, and not expected to be completed until January 2018.
  • The process only involves toggling a flag in Chrome’s settings to ‘Enabled,’ and it works on both desktop and mobile.
  • It’s worth noting that on Chrome 62 (the current stable version) these redirects are blocked, but there is no message telling you about them. On Chrome 64, currently in the Dev and Canary channels, there is a message informing you that a redirect was blocked.
