This extension protects you from phishing sites. The MetaCert shield turns green when you visit certified Cryptocurrency websites.
The green padlock is meaningless because SSL certs are free and automatically issued to phishing sites.
✅ Whenever you visit a verified crypto site or social media account, the Cryptonite shield turns from black to green on your toolbar - providing an obvious indicator that you are safe.
✅ This browser extension will also block more phishing sites than any other software. And it's the only one to block fake twitter accounts and other known scam social media accounts.
✅ If the shield doesn’t turn green when you visit a Crypto exchange or wallet, assume it’s not safe until you can prove otherwise.

WHAT ABOUT NON-CRYPTO SITES?
This extension does not provide a green shield for non-Crypto sites. By only verifying Crypto sites, we help people stay more vigilant when buying and selling cryptocurrencies.
Cryptonite is fast, reliable and secure and respects your right to privacy. Don't be alerted to the permission request when installing this software - you get that for practically every extension - including Adblock Plus.
