I can not run google chrome without –no-sandbox argument

I have this version of kali linux :

Linux kali 5.7.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.7.6-1kali2 (2020-07-01) x86_64 GNU/Linux

I have downloaded google chrome from chrome’s website, then I have installed it with this command

dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

When I try to launch google chrome by typing google-chrome in the terminal, that is what I obtain

[1984:1984:0726/112742.739106:ERROR:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(89)] Running as root without --no-sandbox is not supm/638180.

But when I try to launch it by typing google-chrome --no-sandbox it works correctly. But sometimes chrome notifies me that there is a lack of security because it works without sandbox.

What does that mean, and what should I do in order to run chrome without --no-sandbox?
