LinkScanner Lite is a safe searching, safe browsing utility that provides early warning and detection for a variety of online threats. It gives you the power to inspect any web page before you visit for exploits, phishing and fraud scams, hacked web sites and malicious lure sites.

Additionally, LinkScanner Lite will automatically inspect search results on major search engines and provide real-time advice to prevent you from accidentally visiting a dangerous site.

How It Works:

  • SearchShield - Inspect search results on major search engines to inform you, before you visit, which web sites are safe or dangerous and why. An icon placed next to the listing allows you to steer clear of malicious web pages and suspicious sites. (SearchShield currently works in Internet Explorer 6.0 and higher only.)
  • Quick Scan - Allows you to pre-scan any hyperlink for site insecurities, on-demand, by simply right-clicking on the link. QuickScan is great for browsing the web or for verifying links forwarded by friends, in blogs or other forums. (Right-click scanning option is available in Internet Explorer 6.0 and higher only.)
  • LinkScanner Lite is free for personal use and is an invaluable program for detecting emerging threats on today?s dynamic Web. Download now and get free real-time search scanning with on-demand web inspection.
