The last time, I have posted about setting up Firefox for secured browsing. This time, I’ll be showing how to do it for Chrome users which are largely increasing overtime.

With no further a do, here’s how you’d do it.

First, open your Chrome browser. Click on the wrench icon on the top right and choose from the drop down menu Options.

From there, click the Under the Hood tab. There are a few options there but the significant one that will keep you protected from phishing attack sites while you surf the Internet would be to Enable phishing and malware protection as you can see from the figure below.

If you ever come across a malware infected site or a fake webpage, you will be shown the page below and again like my previous post about setting Firefox for secured browsing, it will ask you if you’d want to continue viewing the page or not. Again, this is for identification of false positives and if you feel that the site is trustworthy and was mislabeled as fake or a phishing site, then this option is the best way to do it.
