What kind of malware does Block Malware block? How does it work?

Currently, Block Malware uses host-based blocking methods (we frequently update our lists) to prevent malicious URLs from loading. In many cases, this is sufficient to prevent your computer from downloading malicious files or opening dangerous links (including those in phishing emails, etc.).

Unlike traditional antivirus software however, Block Malware does not currently scan your computer for existing viruses or malware. That said, we’re continually improving our apps for Incoggo, so stay tuned for future updates on this!
