In today's digital age, ensuring user security while browsing the web is of paramount importance. However, the convenience and interconnectedness of the internet also expose users to various security risks. The increasing prevalence of phishing attacks, malware downloads, and insecure connections has highlighted the urgent need for effective solutions that prioritize user security during web browsing. In response to this pressing concern, our team has developed MalAware, a powerful web browser extension designed to enhance user security by providing real-time website analysis and proactive threat detection. This research paper introduces MalAware, a web browser extension designed to enhance user security by providing real- time website analysis. Acting as a vigilant guardian against potential threats such as phishing attacks, malware downloads, and insecure connections, MalAware employs sophisticated algorithms and scanning techniques to proactively detect and warn users of any suspicious behaviors or elements encountered during web browsing.
