New Malwarebytes Addon for Chrome and Firefox that identifies popup scams

Malwarebytes has a new browser addon called Browser Guard, that not only blocks malware, trackers, etc, but identifies and blocks tech support scam popups, and prevents common tactics like blocking the page from being closed, etc.

Please spread the word, install it on your grandma’s browser, etc, or anyone else who you are afraid might fall for one of these scams. Of course it won’t prevent the ssa and other calling scams, but it will help. Those who are actively looking for popup scams for scambaiting might not want it, but hopefully it helps people not be scammed, or for those who don’t fall for those things, it will prevent the nuisance of a popup that prevents itself from being closed.
