Search engine giant Google has introduced a new feature that will allow Web users to block domain names that they expect lead to sites containing spam and malware.
Google hopes the new feature will allow Web users to tailor their searches and reduce their risk of falling victim to cybercrime.
The ‘Block all domain name search results’ feature will outlaw entire websites — regardless of what a user goes on to search for.
All the domain names that a person blocks will be stored in their Google account.
One of the reasons Google has introduced the new feature is that it requires Web users to be logged into their Google accounts constantly.
Michael Santo, contributor to Tech Buzz Examiner said: “This is a great idea for giving people more control over their search results.”
