Protect your-self from Phishing attacks by installing Anti-Phishing toolbar,

Netcraft's anti-phishing Toolbar community is effectively a giant neighbourhood watch scheme, empowering the most alert and most expert members to defend everyone within the community against phishing frauds.

The 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 or sites are unlikely to be hosted in the former Soviet Union).
Download and try out the toolbar
