SafeToOpen for
personal use is

Our products protect your desktop browsers and Outlook email client across all your devices from phishing attacks.

  • What is a phishing attack? Phishing is a cyber attack that often delivered via fake emails, text messages, and social media. The goal is to trick people into believing that the message is something they want or need — a request from their bank, for instance, or a note from someone in their company — and to click a link or download an attachment. 
  • Am I a target? Yes, everyone who uses email or social media can be a target for phishing attacks. Have you ever seen or heard about a suspicious email from a bank or a service provided asking to click on a link to re-activate your account? These are phishing emails that are sent to everyone.
  • How can I protect myself and my family? The best way to protect from phishing attacks is not to click on any link if you do not know the sender or you know the sender but the content of the email seems suspicious. Another best way is to use SafeToOpen extensions and add-in.
