    Copying EMAIL link to Web Browser for Testing ??


    I never click on an EMAIL link.
    I just copy them to the browser address block to see and them possibly execute to go to that link location.

    -----------------
    QUESTION
    -----------------
    1) Is this OK or am I still opening myself up to get infected?
    2) What is the best way to test the link without getting infected ?

    Thanks
    David

    Callender: Thanks for responding.
    Really appreciate the links.
    Why M$ doesn't have this built in is beyond me unless Defender is verifying it during email download.

    That's one of things Malwarebytes is very good at.
