Safe browsing in Firefox Focus

Safe browsing is a feature that warns you when you are about to visit a dangerous site known for malware, phishing and downloading unwanted software on your device.

How does safe browsing work?

Firefox Focus has been using the Google safe browsing API for Safe browsing. When you tap a link, we check the link against lists of reported phishing, unwanted software, and malware sites. If the site is identified as an attack site, Firefox Focus (versions 6 and older) will warn you against visiting it.
