Google's Gmail email browser will now feature an embedded function that will help consumers remain alert and aware in case of government monitoring. The added function will establish a much more transparent platform for consumers, with alerts that will be added in case of any government activity as well as extended features to increase overall security to personal accounts.
In an attempt to allow consumers to have a better understanding of what is happening around their online presence, Gmail will allow users to be notified if the government is interested in their affairs. To help increase visibility and transparency, the Gmail platform will have warnings show up when suspicious links are clicked as well as blockers to suspicious sites. This will allow consumers to better monitor their own online trail in case they are being looked into.
