Google adding anti-phishing feature to Gmail for Android app

The same week that a Google Docs phishing scam made the news, Google has announced new anti-phishing features for the Gmail for Android app.

Google says that it’s implementing anti-phishing security checks in Gmail for Android. When you get an email with a link to a site that Gmail has identified as a forgery, you’ll get a warning message to say that it could be a phishing scam. You can then either go back or continue to the site if you think that it’s safe.

This is a nice addition to the Gmail for Android app. Not only does it help folks to identify potential phishing scams, but it shows them a full-screen warning when a scam is likely so that the user can’t miss it.

These new anti-phishing security checks are now rolling out to users.
