Google Chrome Malware Scanner

Updated: Jul 9, 2019

Did you know that you can use your Google Chrome web browser to scan your computer for malware and viruses? The online browser, which is one of the most used, has been building and updating Chrome over the nine plus years it has been around with security as the priority.

Google Chrome also looks for things of interest like apps that you have installed that you might not even know about.

Give it a try. Type chrome://settings/cleanup into your Google Chrome browser and you will be on your way, scanning your computer for malicious malware.

Please keep in mind that the scanner built into Google Chrome should not be used as your main virus protection since it is not updated as often as dedicated virus and malware software can do should you have already installed on your computer.

It is nice to know that you have a second scanner on your computer just in case you need or want a second opinion when scanning your computer for threats.

If you do give the Chrome browser Malware Scan a try, please let us know how it worked for you in the comments below. Thanks and happy scanning.
