Snapchat uses information from Google’s Safe Browsing service to help warn Snapchatters about suspected phishing, malware and other dangerous websites.
Here’s how it works:
When you open a link, Snapchat uses information from Google’s Safe Browsing service to check if the link is associated with spam, abuse, phishing, or other harmful activity. These sites may try to do things like steal your credentials or install malicious software on your device! If you open a link of this nature, you'll see an alert that lets you back out, or learn more about Google’s Safe Browsing service. The URL itself will not be shared with Google.
Important ⚠️ If your website is being incorrectly categorised by Google, please visit one of the following for more information:
Please understand that Google's Safe Browsing service might not be perfect. Google works to provide the most accurate and up-to-date phishing, malware, and unwanted software information. However, Google can't guarantee that the information will be comprehensive and error-free: some risky sites may not be identified, and some safe sites may be identified in error.
