Hello, I’m trying to figure out the best product to protect a user from phishing sites.
This is in addition to the phishing protection built into most modern browsers. I am also advising that people use WOT, which also offers phishing protection. However, I am trying to find a third layer of protection which will help to warn users against phishing websites.
I tried K9 and found that it drastically slows down YouTube videos. I disabled the Force YouTube Safety Mode, but this has already made me a little wary of this product. Has anyone else had bad experiences with it, or is this likely the only negative issue, assuming I disable most of the filters?
By the way, does anyone know of any other services?
Ad-Aware Security Toolbar protects you from dangerous websites. By checking in real-time URL against a constantly updated list of suspected malware and phishing sites, Ad-Aware Toolbar lets you explore the web safely.
I’ll keep on looking and see what I can find and let you know okay
The only time you would need to worry about a phishing site is if you perform online banking or purchase products online where personal financial data will be transmitted so using a toolbar or whatever would seem like overkill to me.
There are ways you can identify a phishing site manually on the site itself.
I never perform financial transactions of any kind on the internet so phishing protection is not needed.
