This extension protects you from phishing sites. The AltSecure shield turns green when you visit certified Cryptocurrency websites.
Browsing the web is etremely big risk to visit phishing sites that try to steal your private data like passwords or logins. This extension protects you from such sites. Our shield turns green when you visit certified websites.
Specifically for cryptocurrency and social network users - extension's main benefit is that it installs a small AltSecure shield icon on the browser toolbar. When you visit a website or a social media account that has been verified by AltSecure, the shield turns from black to green, so you know with 100% certainty that you are safe.
If the shield doesn't turn green when you visit any website, assume it's not safe until you can prove otherwise.
AltSecure verifies any type of website such as Token and ICO websites as well as social media accounts, right after above-mentioned websites have installed AltSecure inside their Slack - to protect their communities from phishing inside Slack DMs and public channels.
AltSecure's threat intelligence system is the most advanced in the world. New phishing sites and social media accounts are classified every day and are updated inside the browser in real-time.
WHY YOU CAN'T TRUST THE BROWSER PADLOCK (SSL)
Phishing sites use SSL Certificates to fool you into thinking that the padlock in the toolbar means they can be trusted. They can't. Looking for a padlock does not help you to stay protected from phishing scams. In fact, the padlock now makes it easier for you to fall for a phishing scam.
