Developer's Description

The Netcraft app protects you from phishing and web-based malware attacks on your Android device.

The Netcraft app protects you from phishing and web-based malware attacks on your Android device. The app will block all known attacks whilst you browse the web.

Although major desktop web browsers (such as Chrome and Firefox) have effective anti-phishing protection, the same is not true of the Android equivalents. The Netcraft app allows you to benefit from phishing protection on your Android device, taking advantage of Netcraft's constantly updated phishing site feed. Over 56 million phishing sites have been detected and blocked by our community to date [January 2019].

The Netcraft app offers free protection for a 28 day trial, after which a monthly or annual subscription is required. The app can be used to report phish to Netcraft without a subscription.

Permissions

In order to protect you, the Netcraft app requires the following permissions:

Accessibility service: to check for malicious URLs whilst you browse the web, and to block phishing sites

Device encryption

When you enable Netcraft's protection, Android may disable device encryption on your behalf. This is a bug with Android, and applies to all applications using accessibility services. If you use Android's device encryption, simply re-enable it after enabling protection in the Netcraft app.
