Emsisoft Browser Security for Firefox
Add an additional layer of website protection with this Chrome extension

Malicious websites are becoming less obvious. The other day we were searching for a particular brand, ran the usual Google search and found a store selling the product. The store looked well-designed, product in stock and was on-sale. But the sale price was just a little too good to be true. This was a fraudulent store trying to sell illegal fake items or simply a store designed to extract money from people thinking they were buying a branded item.

How do you avoid landing on one of these websites? If they are listed on Google, you'd think they are legitimate. They aren't, but they haven't been reported as fake - yet - so it's too easy to get caught out.

The solution is a browser extension such as Emsisoft Browser Security for Firefox. This sits in your menu bar and checks a website against a list of bad websites by URL and IP address. If someone has reported the site as suspicious it will be flagged up. You can also use the extension to flag up potential websites as suspicious to warn other users.

The extension will also protect you against phishing emails and websites by stopping you from making a purchase from an illegitimate website or online store.

Emsisoft point out that your personal data is secure with this browser extension. No data is sent to the Emsisoft servers.

What's new in 2018.12.0.12?

- Minor localization fix.

Verdict:

Another simple extension to help protect you against illegitimate and phishing websites.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
