We are happy to announce availability of Comodo Online Security browser extension for Chromium Based browsers.
What does it do?
This browser extension protects you against malicious and phishing URLs. When it encounter one such URL, it will show warning page as shown in enclosed snap, allowing user to: Continue browsing or Go back
It also allows user to report false-positive and you can also report suspicious sites.
I have Comodo Internet Security - Web-filtering, do i still need it?
In general no. It uses the same cloud based database. But there have been cases where for certain blocked cases CIS has not been able to show proper block page allowing you to continue browsing. Down the road we will be shipping this with Comodo Internet Security/Internet Security Essentials / Comodo Secure Shopping also.
What’s next in it?
We are working on some cool innovation, where we will be able to detect phishing pages on the fly. Phishing is something that is increasing and need default-deny approach, like we have for unknown files. We have our own web site, where you can see latest phishing cases https://phishbank.org/
What about extensions for other browsers?
In works, we hope to release ones for IE, Mozilla and Edge this month.
Why extension, why not application?
Browser applications model is now getting more rigid and allowing to provide additional security via extensions only rather external applications.
If you have any feature request, you may pin under wish-list section.
I had selected “continue anway” the first time and got “this is a test page”. Now I don’t get the alert. The page directly opens to “this is a test page”. I tried cleaning the browser but the same. There is nothing in the filtering logs too.
I think, when you click “go back to safety”, it should take you to “homepage” set by the users.
