Safe Browsing

Google’s Safe Browsing technology examines billions of URLs per day looking for unsafe websites. Every day, we discover thousands of new unsafe sites, many of which are legitimate websites that have been compromised.

When we detect unsafe sites, we show warnings on Google Search and in web browsers.

Our security team created Safe Browsing to identify malware and phishing sites and notify users and webmasters so they can protect themselves from harm. By providing details about the threats we detect and the warnings we show, we hope to improve web security and encourage safer web security practices.

For further information, see the Google Transparency Report.
