How Modern Browsers Help Protect You From Malware and Phishing

or, beware the ne'er-do-wells!

An up-to-date browser guards you from phishing and malware attacks when you’re browsing the web. It does so by limiting three types of security risk when you’re online:

Risk 1: How often you come into contact with an attacker

You can be exposed to attackers through a malicious fake website or even through a familiar website that has been hacked. Most modern browsers precheck each web page that you visit and alert you if one is suspected of being malicious. This lets you make an informed judgement about whether you really want to visit that page.
