A: M86 SecureBrowsing is a free, browser-based security plug-in that protects users from malware on search engine sites, in web-based email like Gmail and Yahoo; and social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. It is the only tool of its kind to use Real-Time Code Analysis technology to provide real-time notification of viruses, phishing attacks and other malware that could be looming on Websites, before users click on site links that will infect their system.
