    New Windows Defender Browser Protection extension for Google Chrome


    Last Updated: 18 Apr 2018 at 11:06
    The Windows Defender Browser Protection extension for Google Chrome allows you to add an additional layer of protection when browsing online, powered by the same trusted intelligence found in Microsoft Edge. The extension alerts you about known malicious links, and gives you a clear path back to safety.

    The Windows Defender Browser Protection extension helps protect you against online threats, such as links in phishing emails and websites designed to trick you into downloading and installing malicious software that can harm your computer.

    If you click a malicious link in an email or navigate to a site designed to trick you into disclosing financial, personal or other sensitive information, or a website that hosts malware, Windows Defender Browser Protection will check it against a constantly updated list of malicious URLs known to Microsoft.

    If the malicious link matches one on the list, Windows Defender Browser Protection will show a red warning screen letting you know that the web page you are about to visit is known to be harmful, giving you a clear path back to safety with one click.

    I haven't seen a Windows Defender add-on for Firefox, but you could add Malwarebytes if you like.

    Does this Browser Protection Extension,
    work in conjunction with other installed security software.
    In other words...
    If I install this extension.
    Are there any known conflicts between Windows Defender and any other installed security software products?

    Hello George, :)

    I currently have the Windows Defender and Malwarebytes add-ons installed for Google Chrome, and haven't noticed any issues so far.

    Thanks Brink,
    for your quick reply. :)

    It's my understanding,
    that Malwarebytes only provides security for malware protection.

    The security software I'm currently using.
    Provides both malware and antivirus protection.
    This software also takes priority over Windows Defender's protections,
    which basically disables Windows Defender,
    with the exception of definition updates.

    Would you foresee any issue I might encounter.
    If I install this extension into Chrome?

    As posted above Malwarebytes does more than just malware protection.

    The Windows Defender add-on is separate than Windows Defender in Windows 10, so it should be fine with your other AV software.
