It's not immediately clear in this example that the user will be charged after subscribing to the site with their phone number.
Chrome will automatically detect if the subscription data on a webpage is insufficient and show up a warning page where users will be given option to either go back or proceed to the page. Apps containing programming code produce a fake system warning that sends you to a website where you are tricked into signing up for a subscription service that could cost you hundreds of dollars a month.
While Android security is generally much tighter than it is on Windows, despite both platforms being quite prevalent, that doesn't stop sketchy mobile developers from trying new and interesting ways to fraudulently separate you from your hard-earned money. The new feature will arrive in December with the launch of Chrome 71, where Google would be able to inform you when a website has unclear mobile billing practices.

Visible and obvious billing information: Subscription information must not be hidden or omitted from the page. Fee structures need to be easily understandable, and websites need to clearly show what kinds of charges they'll apply before consumers accept the terms of carrier billing. The warning will show up on Chrome desktop, Chrome mobile, and Android WebView. When Google introduced in-app charges to Google Play in 2011, it started billing customers without password requirements or other methods to obtain account holder authorization, the FTC said.
Recall that recently Google Chrome updated to version 69. In the worst case scenarios, some websites don't even bother telling users they're being charged, disguising forms as "enter phone number to access site" gateways.
