Quick launch summary 

We’re adding new capabilities to help protect users in the Advanced Protection Program (APP) who use the Chrome web browser from malware. Specifically, when Chrome detects a potentially suspicious file download, users will see a new prompt asking whether they want to send the file to Google Advanced Protection to check for malware. If they choose to send it, Google Safe Browsing will scan it in real time and will warn the user if it determines the file is unsafe. 

See our Security Blog post for more information on the new malware protection and how it works
The message users will see when a potentially suspicious file download is detected
