The Pages that warn you when you visit malware and Phishing sites have been changed by the Chromium team in Chrome, you can see the new ones currently on Canary and Dev. channels when you visit this (for Malware warning page) and this (phishing warning page) test pages in the browser. Whenever you encounter these warnings while browsing, you should click on ‘Back to Safety’ button showed in the page.
- Test Malware and Phishing Protection is Active and Working in Firefox
- Nope for Chrome warns against Phishing Links
FYI, Chrome uses Safe Browsing feature to check each page you visit against a list of constantly malware and phishing pages and warns you when you encounter any malicious or suspected phishing site. Chrome saves this list locally on your computer.
Safe browsing feature with name ‘Malware and Phishing Protection’ is enabled by default in Chrome which you can view in Settings and you shouldn’t disable it. Firefox and Safari browsers use Google’s Safe browsing feature.
Note: You can see the old ones in stable or beta versions by vising links mentioned above.
