With this announcement, if you're a developer of Android apps with WebView you no longer have to make changes to gain this protection.
Today, we’re announcing that Google Play Protect is bringing Safe Browsing to WebView by default, starting in April 2018 with the release of WebView 66. Developers of Android apps using WebView no longer have to make any changes to benefit from this protection.

This is one of those apps that all of us Android users have on our devices, but unless we're developers, we never think about. Easy to assume that the apps can automatically browse & display web content.
