Google has announced new steps to combat the placement of fraudulent tech support ads on its platform. The company will roll out a verification program in the next few months to ensure that only legitimate third-party tech support providers can place Google ads. There are many legitimate tech support providers that offer local or regional services, or affordable support for out-of-warranty products, Google pointed out. Its goal is to separate those providers from bad actors. However, enforcement actions are challenging.
