Check a Website

Get Safe Online has partnered with Cifas, the UK’s leading fraud prevention service, to launch ‘Check a Website’.

‘Check a Website’ is a new, easy-to-use online tool which helps determine whether a website is likely to be legitimate or a scam … before you visit it. It is hoped to prevent thousands of people in the UK falling victim to unwanted online scams every year.

To use, simply type in the address of the website you want to check, and your results will appear within seconds. To try it out simply visit www.getsafeonline.org/checkawebsite/
