Netcraft Anti-Phishing Toolbar is a useful and easy to use Firefox add-on that blocks phishing sites, helping to protect users from online fraud.
The Toolbar community is effectively a giant neighborhood watch scheme, empowering the most alert and most expert members to defend everyone within the community against phishing attacks.
The Netcraft Anti-Phishing Toolbar also:
· Traps suspicious URLs containing characters which have no common purpose other than to deceive.
· Enforces display of browser navigational controls (toolbar & address bar) in all windows, to defend against pop up windows which attempt to hide the navigational controls.
· Clearly displays sites' hosting location, including country, helping you to evaluate fraudulent urls (e.g. the real citibank.com or barclays.co.uk sites are unlikely to be hosted in the former Soviet Union).
Netcraft Anti-Phishing Toolbar is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
· Firefox 2.0 and later
