Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety - Ben Franklin.


without the autoplay audio and video

tl;dr after reading Google's blog post (https://blog.google/technology/safety-security/advanced-prot...):

Google Chrome will now detect, if you have sync turned on, if your account is enrolled in Google's Advanced Protection Program (https://landing.google.com/advancedprotection/), and in case you are, give you stronger protection from malicious downloads.

The ZDNet article adds a lot of fluff around this, and weirdly calls the Advanced Protection Program "Gmail Advanced Protection Program".
