Description of the issue:
I heard about a game called bitlife and wanted to get it. I went to search for it on duckduckgo, and the first link that pops up is bitlife dot onl. I downloaded the game for pc, but the download was blocked by my antivirus. It contains adware. I have safe browsing on in my Brave settings, but this website was not listed as unsafe. How do I submit this website as an unsafe website for Brave browser’s blacklist? How do I see brave browser’s blacklist?
Should I download the google safe browsing extension to protect me from this in the future? I would assume that extension sends all your data to google and therefore is not privacy-friendly. But then what should I used instead? I thought that duckduckgo privacy essentials would rate websites based on their trustworthiness, but it looks like that extension only rates them on privacy features. How do I contact duckduckgo to notify them that their top website for the search “bitlife” is a website that distributes mobigames adware?
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Go to duckduckgo search engine
- Search for “Bitlife”
- Click on Bitlife.onl
- Download game for pc
Your antivirus will block the download due to the download containing adware.
Brave Version( check
