Google has announced a pair of new security upgrades for Gmail and proposed a new industry standard for secure email transport (VentureBeat). The security updates are new full-page safe browsing warnings if you click on an email link that leads to a page in Google’s database of malicious content providers and extra information on what to do if Google detects that a government is trying to access your account, including guides on setting up two-factor authentication.
