Google wants to reassure you about government-backed hackers

Just a reminder!



Google wants to reassure users about the warnings it issues about government-backed hackers.

The company hasn’t changed anything about its policies or its practices, but Google wanted to remind its users in a blog post how the warnings work.

Some context: Since the presidential election, journalists have reported receiving messages from Google notifying them that “government-backed hackers may be trying to steal your password.”

The Atlantic’s Julia Ioffe and Vox’s Ezra Klein, both political journalists, reported receiving the message in November.

Another batch of folks, many of them journalists, raised concerns on Twitter this week. The timing coincides with an investigation into possible links between the campaign of President Donald Trump and the Russian government.
