How to Use DFNDR’s Anti-Hacking Feature
Learn how it works, and when you should use it.
DFNDR has a Anti-hacking tool that makes Web browsing more secure. When this feature is activated, your device will be protected against phishing attempts. This feature will identify and block any malicious websites or pop-ups, so that you never come into contact with them. If you try to access a potentially dangerous website, this tool will block the site and warn you of its intentions. You also won’t be able to enter your password or any sensitive data onto blocked sites. This will prevent password theft, which means that a hacker will not be able to trick you into revealing your account information through a false or malicious site. Click here to activate Anti-Hacking now:
Click the button above. Or, begin by opening up the DFNDR app, and then click the “Menu” (three horizontal lines) button in the upper left corner. Then, click on “Settings,” followed by “Antivirus.” Under the antivirus settings, you can then activate “Anti-hacking”. To activate, simply slide the bar to the right. If for some reason you want to disable Anti-hacking, you can slide the bar to the left.
Keep Anti-hacking activated so that you always have a secure browsing experience. If you want to disable the feature, keep in mind that your Web browser will no longer automatically block you from malicious sites. That means that you’ll have to be extra cautious as you browse the Web, and pay more attention to whether or not a site’s connection is secure.
Why Anti-Hacking is Important
Unfortunately, Web browsers are not as safe as they should be. They don’t necessarily block you from malicious pop-ups or visiting malicious websites by default. That means that it can be very easy to stumble upon a website that you believe to be secure, but really isn’t. This can lead to installing malware or spyware onto your device, or phishing attempts.
Phishing is a type of cyber scam that tricks individuals into entering personal information onto a seemingly secure website. Phishing attempts can happen via email, as well. These malicious sites (or emails) can lead to your data, identity, or finances being stolen — so it’s not something to be taken lightly. That’s why it’s important to take advantage of this extra tool on the DFNDR app. It’s already there, it’s free to use, and it makes your Internet experience safer and more enjoyable. Think of it as another layer of protection to keep your device and personal information secure.
