Criminals set up web sites and infect existing web sites to the visitors personal information, credit card information, or personal files to extract. It is often difficult for these sites to recognize.
AVG LinkScanner is a free security tool that tells you whether a website is safe or not even before you visit them.
After installation of this free plugin gives AVG LinkScanner by means of an icon whether a website is safe to visit or not. These icons appear next to the search results in Google, Bing, Yahoo or any other search engine.
A red cross icon next to a link means that the site is unsafe to visit. A green check mark means the website is safe is found. Sites security terms between are indicated by a single or a double exclamation mark. AVG LinkScanner checks also on websites that are personal to steal information such as credit card details, private files, or identity.
The component Active Surf-Shield scans a page after you click on a link or a website entered in the address bar. Then prevents this function that the web site is opened if it turns out that this is unsafe to visit. This is all done in a very short time so that you do not suffer from delays in the operation of the system. Another free program that is similar to AVG LinkScanner is called SiteAdvisor.
