Install extension Surfguard allows you to:

Check website safety status on the fly

With Surfguard you can always keep an eye on reputation of every domain you browse through.

Preview unsafe link details before clicking

Just move and hold your mouse over a link before you click - if a link is not safe for a reason, Surfguard will highlight it, and show a quick safety report.

Get a heads up on suspicious sites detected

Some websites belong to grey zone with a controversial or mixed content, according to user reports (for example, a site may be mostly fine except for some age-restricted or malware-infected areas), so showing a ‘suspicious’ notification can’t hurt.

Avoid bumping into adult or dangerous content

If you accidentally click on a non-recommended link - don’t worry! Surfguard has one more protection barrier: you'll stop by an intermediate page with a pop-up notification, so you can make a conscious decision before getting to the target page.
