The app scans for potentially suspicious links in emails. If the user clicks such a suspicious link, a warning is shown before the page is opened.

It’s not entirely clear how the technology works, but likely Google uses its Safebrowsing database with malcious websites to determine whether the email links to a malcious page.

It’s unknown when and if the feature becomes available for the iOS version of the Gmail app.
