Google has always been introducing new technologies and come up with new softwares for the public. This time, Google’s cybersecurity unit “Jigsaw” has launched a new application called “Intra” to the Google Play Store.
This app has been rolled out to protect users from Domain Name System (DNS) manipulation attacks. Talking about DNS, it is basically the phonebook of the Internet from where users access information online through domain names. It converts domain names to IP addresses so browsers can load Internet resources.
“DNS manipulation attack is used to block access to news sites, social media platforms and messaging apps says Jigsaw, and this new application is expected to prevent that,” Android Headlines said.
The new app Intra is also expected to protect users against phishing and malware attacks. It also comes with no limit on data usage and does not slow down the Internet connection.
Intra is an open source app and the company claims that users’ information would be kept private and protected.
