Microsoft harasses Google Chrome users with ads

Microsoft decided to play the game not entirely cleanly and displays advertisements for its services to users of Google Chrome in the Windows 10 and 11 versions.

Users of the Google Chrome browser report unusual ads displayed to them in Windows 10 and 11. Although at first glance they look like a scam, the Redmond company confirmed that they are real.

Microsoft encourages you to use its services

The ads are unusual in that they appear while using the Google Chrome browser. Users were also concerned about the fact that they were not of the highest quality. Many people thought it was some kind of scam, but it wasn’t. Microsoft decided to advertise its services to users of a competing browser.

In the ads, Microsoft encourages users to use the Bing search engine as well as GPT-4. If someone agrees to this, the search engine in Chrome will automatically be changed and the Bing Service plug-in will be installed. Interestingly, Chrome has protection against this type of changes, so it will display a message whether you are sure about this decision. Microsoft has also been clever here and displays its own pop-up asking for and saving changes.

This is a one-time notification giving users the option to set Bing as their default search engine in Chrome. We value providing our customers with choice, so you have the option to decline the notification.

– Microsoft informs.

Of course, there is no need to explain why Windows users do not like such ideas. This isn’t the first time Microsoft has tried this type of method. However, it must be honestly admitted that Google also has similar ads, which in turn are intended to persuade Edge users to switch to Chrome.
