Google has a minor update its pushing to Gmail on both web and mobile platforms. Users will now be notified of potentially harmful incoming emails before you open them.
All incoming emails through Gmail will now be scanner for potential threats and/or harmful material. If a dangerous email is spotted by Google, the avatar of the sender will be replaced with an exclamation mark to notify you of its potentially harmful effects.
At the point, there’s a good a chance the email is unsafe. You should proceed with caution if it’s from somebody you know, or delete it without opening if it’s from somebody you don’t know. There’s a good chance the danger lies in attachments, however, it may also lie in the email’s body itself.
The update is rolling out slowly and may take up to 2 weeks before reaching everyone. More info in detail can be read from the source link down below.
