4 Tools To Check If A Website Is Safe For Browsing
Is the Internet safe? Some will say yes, and some will say no. Personally, I think that it is not a safe place anymore. There are hundreds of thousands of websites on the internet but you cannot say whether any specific website is safe for browsing or not. There are links on websites that leads you to spam websites, install malicious software on your computer, steals your personal information, etc. Even if you have a good antivirus program installed, you can still not be sure whether the link you are about to click is safe or not. If you want to find out whether the website is safe for browsing, check out some tools mentioned below.
