Google Sign-In Page Requires JavaScript Be Turned On for Security

A recent post on the Google Security Blog says that the internet giant will require that users enable JavaScript to use the Google sign-in page. This will allow Google to run a risk assessment and only allow a sign-in if nothing looks suspicious. The blog post also discusses new Google account data sharing features where the user is notified of when an app is granted access to their Google account. If your account is compromised, Google has a new step-by-step process that they will trigger if they detect potential unauthorized activity.

It's Halloween and the last day of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, so we're celebrating these occasions with security improvements across your account journey: before you sign in, as soon as you've entered your account, when you share information with other apps and sites, and the rare event in which your account is compromised.
