How Bitdefender Web Protection Ensures a Safe Browsing Experience

A common misconception among internet users is that basic cyber hygiene is enough to protect against malicious threats. This couldn”t be more wrong.

Cyber threats are evolving rapidly at the hands of their puppeteers, and it”s impossible for users to hone their cybersecurity skills at the same rate.

Every browsing session and online activity you indulge in could be harmful. It”s easy to get lost in the minefield of unsafe web surfing that exposes users to malware-serving websites and phishing attempts.

Secure browsing experience

Cybercriminals have tailored their attack strategies to every major event and change in the social agendas throughout the year, delivering malicious payloads and defrauding users at an overwhelming rate. These web-based attacks have increased in sophistication and diversified in delivery methods, making it harder for the average user to determine if a website is safe or fake. 

Bitdefender”s web-filtering technology makes sure you don”t land on a malicious website and risk that infects your devices with malware. Web attack prevention checks every website you access for threats, blocking all known infected links and protecting your personal information from cyber thieves.

With the Search Advisor component, you can determine whether your search results are safe to access before clicking any links. Search engine queries and links posted on social media websites are rated, indicating whether they are safe to visit. This web-level protection integrates seamlessly with Bitdefender Windows and Mac security solutions, but it is also available as a free extension for popular browsers such as Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

The TrafficLight extension checks the websites you access for known cyber threats, keeping your devices safe from attacks by info-stealing and file-encrypting malware. Suspicious and phishing websites are blocked, securing your shopping and online banking sessions.

Say no to phishing and fraud attempts

Scammers have set up shop in every corner of the internet, expanding their social engineering techniques to manipulate their targets into providing sensitive information and money.

The advanced anti-phishing protection integrated with Bitdefender solutions is designed to keep you out of danger, blocking suspicious websites masquerading as trustworthy entities. Moreover, the anti-fraud filtering system warns you if the websites you visit are trying to scam you, keeping your credit card and personally identifiable information safe. The anti-phishing and anti-fraud filtering systems also extend to social media platforms, so you can rest assured that whatever links your friends and family pass on to you are harmless.

Web protection on smartphones and tablets too

The risks associated with internet browsing are not limited to your Windows or Mac devices. Mobile threats are on the rise, consistent with the growing number of people who use their Android and iOS devices for shopping, online bank services, messaging and social media. Bitdefender Mobile Security filters all internet traffic by scanning webpages for malicious and fraudulent content. It offers real-time protection against all known online threats that could compromise your device and data. You can navigate your way past all malware and fraudulent websites, regardless whether you”re running an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, with minimum impact on battery performance.

Our cross-platform Bitdefender Total Security solution packs enterprise-grade protection security layers to ensure safe digital encounters.
