    Google announced earlier this week plans to enable Safe Browsing support for the Android WebView component, a stripped-down browser that comes with all Android versions.

    The Safe Browsing API is a blacklist of malicious links that host malware, phishing pages, or other deceptive sites. Google launched Safe Browsing more than a decade ago, when it integrated the API with Chrome, becoming a staple feature of Google's main browser.
