Google is adding the Chrome Cleanup tool, which is already available in Chrome settings, and allows users to scan and remove unwanted apps from their computers through a “safety check,” according tomedia reports. First, Google introduced the Software Removal tool for Chrome (later renamed Chrome Cleanup), which is available for download as a stand-alone program and scans and fixes unnecessary apps in Chrome browsers.
Chrome Cleanup is now integrated into The Chrome Settings and Sandbox and ESET detection engines to detect more bad behavior that causes damage to Chrome.
Currently, the Cleanup tool is accessible through Settings, Advanced Reset and Clean up, and Clean up your computer (Chrome/ Cleanup/Settings).
If you click Find, the tool will start scanning programs that are harmful to your PC, especially to Chrome settings.
Recently, Google added security checks to Chrome’s redesigned privacy and security settings. The tool scans passwords, extensions, secure browsing technology, and Chrome update status.
Now Google is adding Chrome Cleanup tools to safety checks to scan PUPs on their computers.
