How it works:
Online scams spread by abusing the share mechanisms of popular social networks and/or by sending e-mails.
Malicious scam posts and comments try to tempt you to click on a link that brings
you to a scam website.
ScamBlockPlus protects you when this happens.
When ScamBlockPlus is enabled in your browser and you click on a link while visiting one of the major social-networks or email-providers, if the opened website is not listed in the global trust-list and thus is an "untrusted website" then the tab is actively protected by ScamBlockPlus. Notice that the black Scam-Block-Plus incognito-icon replaces the red scam-block-plus shield-icon. This informs that ScamBlockPlus prevents the website from doing things that could compromise your security.
While visiting an untusted website, your ordinary cookies are hidden from the website. You appear to be logged-out everywhere. Thus the untrusted website can't share or like on your behalf.
Untrusted websites are prevented from receiving textual input from you. This blocks scams that trick you into logging-in or into typing and exposing your personal data.
File downloads are blocked when initiated by untrusted websites, to prevent scams that inject viruses into your computer.
By a simple click on a button you can trust a website that is not listed on the global trust-list. Scam-Block-Plus protection will be turned off for this website. At any time you can untrust a website previously trusted by you.
Please be sure not to trust a website unless you are absolutely sure that the website is legit and not a scam !!!
