This warning will be shown when you click on the dangerous link.

Now if you receive a message with a dangerous link i.e. a link for heading to the website which haves malware and unwanted softwares. Then you will see a warning if you click on that link. However, please take a note that it is not necessary that every email or website which is affected by this feature is dangerous. But to remain secure to open these links be very careful and replying to the emails with these types of warnings.

Google says the update might be rolling out in a couple of weeks and it will take 2-3 days to reach each and every user of Gmail on Android or Web.
