1500 fake websites blocked by [email protected]

Thanks to all of you, we were able to block an average of 4 fraudulent websites per day in 2018: a total of almost 1,500 websites across the year.

In 2018, you forwarded no fewer than 648,522 e-mails to suspicious@safeonweb.be. The forwarded e-mails are automatically scanned by our software. In a first phase, messages with URLs are identified. The anti-virus technology then detects suspicious links in these emails, which are forwarded to EU Phishing Initiative. This ensures the phishing websites get blocked, through collaboration with 4 browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer.
