Windows Defender Anti-Phishing Plug-in Now Available for Chrome

Google’s Chrome does have some built-in security protection, but you can now add the well regarded (and well behaved) Microsoft Windows Defender anti-phishing product to the browser on your PC.

The Windows Defender plug-in doesn’t disable any of the Chrome security components but adds an additional layer of defense.

If you’re not familiar with how the plug-in works, it alerts you about known malicious links and sites before you actually visit the site.

And remember, while plug-in tools like these are helpful in protecting your network and users from malware and ransomware, they are only a part of a Unified Threat Management System you should have in place at your company.

You can find the plug-in at the Chrome Web Store or directly at Microsoft.
