Kaspersky Safe Browser for Windows Phone, available for Free

Online security company, Kaspersky Lab has released its Kaspersky Safe Browser for Windows Phone mobile operating system to safeguard web surfing on smartphones. The application is now available as a free download from Windows Phone Store.


The new solution boasts protection against phishing, a widespread threat that affects PCs and mobile devices alike. Phishing scams see cybercriminals create fake sites and emails to trick unsuspecting users into providing personal data.

Kaspersky Safe Browser for Windows Phone blocks links to content that may be harmful. The application receives information about malicious sites in real time from the anti-phishing database in the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network. This allows the application to block even those phishing pages that have only recently appeared on the Internet.

In addition to blocking phishing links, the application makes it possible to filter web resources according to their content. Users can choose which categories of sites should be blocked, such as pornographic sites, pages containing obscene words or scenes of violence, gaming sites, social networking sites, etc. This function also helps parents keep their children safe from harmful content.

The company said that Kaspersky Safe Browser for Windows Phone should be added to the Kid’s Corner, a special children’s section on Windows Phone smartphones which houses content and applications selected by parents.

Victor Yablokov, Head of Mobile Product Line at Kaspersky Lab, commented: “Smartphones are becoming an essential part of modern life and the web browser is one of the most popular features. People use them for all sorts of things. However, even the most tech-savvy web user may sometimes struggle to distinguish fake sites from the real thing. Now, Kaspersky Safe Browser for Windows Phone is here to help, providing automatic protection against fraudulent and inappropriate sites.”

Kaspersky Safe Browser for Windows Phone further extends the portfolio of Kaspersky Lab products for mobile platforms, which currently includes the security solution Kaspersky Internet Security for Android designed for Android-based smartphones and tablets, as well as the Kaspersky Safe Browser for iOS app released in October 2013.
