About Google Malware Checker

As you know, most websites you use are perfectly safe to visit. However, it is important to know what to do if you receive a suspicious or unknown link, perhaps in an email or from elsewhere.

By using this tool, created by Google, you can test any site you are considering visiting quickly and easily by entering the URL in the box above and clicking submit. This will bring up a new window with a Google Transparency Report in it. The current status of the site will be clearly displayed.

Another use for this tool is for testing your own site. Sometimes a site that is usually perfectly safe can become unsafe because of some content posted by you or a site user. It is especially worth doing if you notice a big, unexplainable drop in your site traffic. It may be that your site has malware and is being blocked by some browsers.

By testing your site you can find this out and at the bottom of the transparency report you will see a note for Webmasters with a link to help for hacked sites. This will ensure you can fix any problems and request a review of your “fixed” site.
