WHAT IS SAFE BROWSING?
Safe Browsing is a Google service that lets client applications check URLs against Google's constantly updated lists of unsafe web resources. Examples of unsafe web resources are social engineering sites (phishing and deceptive sites) and sites that host malware or unwanted software.
With Safe Browsing you can:
- Check pages against Google Safe Browsing lists based on platform and threat types.
- Warn users before they click links in your site that may lead to infected pages.
Currently, Opera, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge are not able to query the Google Safe Browsing reputation server.

The Safe Browsing API is for non-commercial use only and is available with Artica Community Edition
