Cyber awareness month – stay safe online

Bad URLs can steal your identity, track your every movement, and violate your privacy. Bad URLs have been around for many years, and they are still wreaking havoc. It is exactly why you should always be careful where you click.

Clicking on an infected or bad URL has happened to millions across the globe in probably every country, and the reason people sometimes make the mistake of clicking something they shouldn’t is the very reason that the bad guys keep putting those bad URL’s in various places (websites, emails, pop up ads, etc.) to trick us. They keep doing it because we keep clicking where we shouldn’t.

This October we celebrated Cyber Awareness Month and Avira wants to make sure users don’t click on anything bad and end up on a website that is dangerous. Avira Browser Safety is a browser extension that ensures that when users browse various sites on the Internet, they don’t accidentally click on a bad URL.

Avira Browser Safety is browser extension which protects a user’s online privacy and blocks malicious websites before they load. Right now it’s available to Avira users for free.

If you don’t have browser security installed on your PC, please consider installing Avira Browser Security. It’s important to make sure you’re doing everything possible to remain safe while online, and set in motion good browsing habits that last throughout the year.
