Opera launches security tools for its Web3 browser

The developers of the Web3 version of the Opera web browser have announced the launch of a new set of security tools that should help users bypass the risks of stumbling upon hackers and scammers. The set was called Web3 Guard – it consists of several new security features, when enabled, the browser must filter decentralized applications (dApps) installed by users, as well as prevent phishing attacks. It is promised that the new tool will scan known threats in dApps – algorithm code, vulnerabilities and audit history. All this should help the user to better understand what application he is going to install – the browser must warn the person about a suspicious application. Phishing attacks using secret phrases (Seed) will also be checked. The browser should scan web pages for such attacks.. Opera said that the new security system will not collect user data. Opera developers have added verification of addresses to which assets are withdrawn to the built-in crypto wallet – the system checks the list of scammer addresses and, in which case, warns the user about the danger. Earlier, Opera announced a collaboration with the Alteon LaunchPad platform, which is designed to allow users to independently issue non-fungible tokens (NFT). It is reported to be fast and cheap.
