Microsoft enhances Chrome's security with Windows Defender Extension

WindowsAs regards safety, the Microsoft seems to be significantly betting on Windows Defender technology, which it has already embedded in Windows 10, in the browser Edge as well as other Microsoft products.

The company took another step, bringing the security features it has introduced to Edge into the Google Chrome browser, in the form of an extension called Windows Defender Browser Protection.

Microsoft points out that the extension is constantly searching for malicious links as you browse the internet and alert you when it detects something suspicious, since it is passed to its database. For example, when it detects links to phishing emails and websites that deceive users to install malicious software on their computer.

The Google Chrome there are also built-in security measures to protect users from insecure sites and other malicious links. But Microsoft, relying on 2017's test results from NSS Labs, claims that Edge offers much better protection than Chrome and Firefox browsers.

Compared to Edge (99%), Chrome offers 87% protection against phishing attacks and Firefox 70%.

You can download Windows Defender Browser Protection by using this link.

If the extension prevents you from visiting a site that is secure, you can disable the "Safeguard against suspicious and malicious sites" toggle button. "The add-on also includes a link that refers to Microsoft's privacy statement because It goes without saying that an extension of this kind should monitor user browsing activities.
