Opera launches security tools to protect users against malicious Web3 actors

Web3 browser Opera unveiled a new set of security capabilities to help users minimize common Web3 dangers.

Web3 Guard offers to protect users from harmful decentralized apps (DApps), seed phrase phishing attempts, and hostile actors.

The security tool scans DApps for suspicious code, security vulnerabilities, and audit history. This gives users a better understanding of the DApp they’re browsing and informs them if any vulnerabilities are detected.

Built-in security mechanisms monitor web sites for exploits, such as typical phishing keywords and characteristics, without compromising users’ privacy or personal data. Danny Yao, Opera’s crypto product manager told:

“Currently, Web3 Guard provides warnings and information to users so that they are not only aware of the potential risks in the moment, but also gradually become more familiar with the types of dangers specific to Web3. “

One of the new security tools for the crypto browser is a malicious address checker. This tool compares recipient addresses to a list of known malicious agents and alerts users if anything suspicious is found. Also, the browser gives users the option to turn on HTTPS everywhere. This adds an extra layer of security and makes sure that the websites they visit use good encryption techniques.

In the first week of December, the browser added a new feature to the platform that lets users explore the vast nonfungible token (NFT) ecosystem through their browser.

The popular crypto browser, which became popular because it lets users use its own token to browse the web through its platform, has become a key part of how people interact with Web3.
