Safe browsing in Firefox Focus

How does safe browsing work?

Firefox Focus has been using the Google safe browsing API for Safe browsing. When you click 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.
