This extension protects you from phishing sites. The MetaCert shield turns green when you visit certified Cryptocurrency websites.
A browser add-on that is designed especially for cryptocurrency enthusiasts. This browser add-on doesn’t just block known phishing sites – it tells you which sites have been verified as 100% safe by MetaCert. It has two features:
- Blocks known phishing websites
- Tells you when a crypto site has been “Verified by MetaCert”
When you visit a verified crypto site, the MetaCert shield turns from black to green. This provides you with 100% certainty that you really are on a site like MyEtherWallet.com and not a brand new phishing site that hasn’t been detected yet. This is the most important utility.
Phishing sites now use SSL Certificates to fool you into thinking that the padlock in the toolbar means they can be trusted. They can’t. Unless the MetaCert shield is green, assume it’s unsafe until you prove otherwise.
Cryptonite is fast, reliable and secure.
