Yeah, MetaCert is an awesome anti-phishing plug-in but Phishfort is free

I used to have MetaCert’s CRYPTONITE installed in my browser and it worked great – No more manually verifying if Bitmex’s address is legit and not fake.

You can’t assume that your old bookmark is still a valid one; hackers and phishers are very creative. Maybe one day, you clicked on that saved link and you get unsuspectingly re-directed to a phishing site and then poof your Bitcoin is gone.

That’s why it is vital that for every crypto-related site you visit, you make sure it’s the real one. MetaCert also protects MyEtherwallet (MEW), Coinbase, Bittrex, Poloniex, Bitfinex, Binance, etc – all the known crypto sites.

But alas, it’s not free anymore and lately I don’t log in as much as I used to. Thank God, there is a free option which is Phishfort and its Chrome plug-in. Although not as extensive as MetaCert’s CRYPTONITE, Phishfort anti-phishing browser plug-in does the job well. One of these days, it will become popular and have more sites to protect.
