McAfee SiteAdvisor - internet browser security advisor add-on

McAfee is a well known company in the antivirus and security related products. They are kind enough to develop the McAfee SiteAdvisor, a browser plugin for both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox that warns user when they are surfing or searching for unsafe sites.

McAfee SiteAdvisor correctly checks its database as you browse the Internet and warns users for sites that are linked to spyware, adware, spam, viruses, browser-based attacks, phishing, or online fraud.

Some of its features:-

  • Search engine integration - When user searches using or other popular search engines, McAfee will add an icon indicating ifthe resulting sites are safe or not.

  • Huge database with in-depth analysis test results - Users can check about why some sites are safe or not by clicking the detailed report on SiteAdvisor freeware.

  • Visible warning - For a quick check up on sites, the McAfee SiteAdvisor button will display different colours as you browse the Internet. Green means safe but red is vice versa.

McAfee SiteAdvisor is a quick and integral browser add on for risk free browsing. Rather than making incorrect assumptions, McAfee had taking the initiative to build a safe internet browsing database and kindly enough to offer the results to the public. Bravo!
