Microsoft has recently released a new browser extension for Google Chrome. This new extension named Windows Defender Browser Protection will protect you against online threats, like phishing and malicious websites, with real-time protection from Microsoft. If you click a malicious link in an email or navigate to a phishing site, or a website that hosts malware, Windows Defender Browser Protection will check it against a constantly updated list of malicious URLs known to Microsoft and warn you from visiting those links.

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.
