During Q2 2022, performed an independent test of malware and phishing protection offered by web browsers running on Windows 10 & 11. The Malware tests ran for 24 days with 96 discrete test runs. Phishing tests ran for 20 days with 80 discrete runs. The reports include measurements of protection against fresh new attacks, consistency of protection over time, and how effective the browser protection was overall.

Technology Overview

The ability to warn potential victims that they are about to land on a malicious website or click on a suspicious URL puts web browsers in a unique position to protect the user from an attack. Websites that trick users into downloading malware and phishing campaigns often used for criminal activity have short lifespans, so it is essential that the URL is discovered and added to the reputation system as quickly as possible. A good reputation system must be both accurate and fast to achieve high catch rates.

  • Google Chrome: Version 101.0.1210.53- 102.0.5005.115
