SAFE BROWSING WITH SITE SAFETY RATING BROWSER PLUGIN
Every time we come across a new website or URL we often hesitate to open that page because of the fear that it may invite problems.The problem or threat can range from getting a virus,a malware or even landing in phishing website(a fake website made like an original one to hack important information).So we generally drop the idea of going to that website.At such moments we wish for some advise...well now McAfee has come out with a solution..and your wish is granted!!
All you have to do is
1.Copy the webaddress or remember it
2.go to www.siteadvisor.com
3.Paste the url or webaddress in the text box "View a site report" and press Enter
DONE...It will show the report on the website.Also you can read reviews about the website.Almost all the popular websites are tested by it.
But again one more wish..i cant go to this site everytime i want to check.is there an easy way?
YES..All you need to do is download a plugin. from the same site
http://www.siteadvisor.com/download/windows.html "download siteadvisor software"
Next time you open your browser a McAfee plugin safety rating logo will appear in the browser*
Whenever you put a webaddress in the address bar of the browser the safety rating logo will turn GREEN if the site is safe or RED if the site have threat and YELLOW if threat is medium.Also if you are about to enter a site with red McAfee signal.then McAfee will ask your permission before proceeding!!So you wont just jump into that danger.
One more amazing thing about the plugin is that whenever you search,say google search..the links that appear in the search result will be marked automatically by siteadvisor that you can know the site report before clicking then and there itself..Now how that sounds!!!
*SITEADVISOR PLUGIN WILL WORK ONLY WITH INTERNET EXPLORER (WINDOWS) AND FIREFOX (WINDOWS AND MAC)
Other features are
PHISHING PROTECTION (just like a threat it will warn you about phishing site)
RISKY SITE BLOCKING
So altogether the site advisor will make your web surfing completely safe..to read more http://www.siteadvisor.com/howitworks/index.html
