After installing the updated software, users are encouraged to review the security warnings that are presented to them and consider revoking permissions as necessary. After this release, users of Google Chrome on Windows, Mac, and Linux will see a security warning appear in the browser whenever they try to interact with a website that has not been explicitly configured by the user. In some cases, this prompt will be displayed in the context of a particular website, and in other cases, it will be displayed in the context of a Google Chrome permissions prompt. After upgrading to Google Chrome 101.0.4951.64, users are encouraged to review the permissions that are being granted to external websites and consider revoking these permissions as necessary.

Google Chrome 101.0.4951.64 released – Important Update

Google Chrome 101.0.4951.64 was released on September 18, 2016, and includes an important update that provides users with more security warnings when they interact with websites that haven't been configured by them. This is a big release for Google Chrome because it seems like many users are being tricked into granting permissions to websites that aren't necessary or even safe for their computers. After installing this new version of Google Chrome, which is available as a Windows, Mac, and Linux download, users will be given prompts about website permissions whenever they try to interact with a website that hasn't been explicitly configured by them.
This action from Google may be in response to the recent hacks involving fake software updates that were used to infect people's computer systems with malware. The update also provides for the display of permission prompts when users visit malicious websites that have not been explicitly configured by them before the user can perform certain actions on these sites. Moreover, this update will also improve the browser's ability to prevent malicious websites from executing code on your computer system without your explicit permission.
