Conceal Browse

Why Conceal: Adds comprehensive malware protection to browsers via a lightweight browser extension. In layman’s terms, it “prevents the happy clicker” from malicious downloads and ransomware. This tool will enable users to continue browsing even if the site is considered or marked as bad. The isolation mode allows you to browse in a protected shell.  No malicious downloads or ransomware will be installed on your protected device. Conceal also includes credential theft prevention. This feature blocks you from logging into a website that appears to be legitimate to the eye.


  • Prevents you from going to malicious sites.  Prevents from downloading malware, ect..

  • Blocks malicious downloads and gives warnings of potential download issues.
  • Places user in isolation mode when a potentially bad website is activated. This allows you to browse in a virtual shell. No harm to your device. This is called the Isolation Environment.
