Bitdefender TrafficLight for Chrome 1.0.0.2
Protect yourself from phishing sites, malware and more

Bitdefender TrafficLight is a free browser extension which can help to protect you from a range of web threats.

Install TrafficLight on Chrome and its icon appears on the toolbar, hopefully displaying a green light to indicate that the current site is entirely safe. If you do need any feedback, clicking the button displays a panel with TrafficLight's verdict on the current page.

You'll see the same icon displayed in your search engine results, Twitter or Facebook feeds, letting you know which links are safe to visit, and which should really be left alone.

The extension also analyses the pages you visit in real time, to protect you from even the very latest threats. Bitdefender says an "Advanced Phishing Filter" will "scan the pages for phishing attempts", while an "Antifraud Filter" "protects against fraudulent websites or targeted scams." We're not entirely sure how these are different, but anyway, there are at least various layers of protection trying to keep you safe online.

TrafficLight worked well for us, but if you do have any problems then it's easy to disable individual features (the icons in your search engine results, say). We noticed that "Facebook and Twitter protection" was turned off by default on our test system, though, so if that's an option you need then check TrafficLight's settings straight after installation.

Verdict:

A simple, unobtrusive browser addon which offers reasonable antiphishing protection

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
