NEW YORK: IPVanish, the award-winning no-traffic-log VPN provider owned by Ziff Davis, today announced the launch of its free Link Checker tool. It joins a recent series of free security tools and upgrades, including IP Address Checker, Password Generator, Internet Speed Checker, Threat Protection, and Split Tunneling, showcasing IPVanish’s dedication to improving online security and privacy for consumers.

Cybercriminals continue to engineer new and complex schemes like GoldPickaxe, the first-ever iOS trojan that targeted unsuspecting Android and iOS users earlier this year by luring them into downloading fraudulent apps that granted device access, bypassing standard security. In fact, 2023 saw a 50% increase in malware attacks on mobile devices and a 93% increase in ransomware attacks compared to 2022 (ITRC). To match the increasing threat level, IPVanish offers robust, easy-to-use security tools.

A Next Generation Link Checker

Secure digital navigation starts with identifying threats before they happen, and the Link Checker lets users verify the safety of URLs before clicking. Malicious websites pose a significant threat, potentially harboring malware, phishing scams, and other security risks.

IPVanish’s Link Checker provides an unmatched vital first line of defense through:

  • AI and Machine Learning Engines: Using these detection engines, scans deliver the most accurate deep-link analysis possible. The tools rigorously monitor web page behavior, including redirects, data transfers and collection, loading, social linking, and more, to classify pages as malicious or benign.
  • Dynamic Page Scanning: Every page element undergoes thorough review and verification, scrutinizing everything from automatic downloads to form type extraction.
  • Remote Browser Isolation: URLs are opened within a secure virtual environment, preventing any activity from reaching your device. Each loaded resource undergoes scrutiny against malicious signatures, and the session terminates after the page visit.
  • Detailed Analysis Page: Upon threat detection, users receive a thorough analysis offering insights into flagged concerns. The Link Checker provides clarity and guidance on everything from website classifications to navigation behaviors.

More Than a Security Check–Analytics that Protect

While traditional URL scanners typically rely solely on domain blocklists, the IPVanish Link Checker conducts deep-link analysis. It employs a temporary, cloud-hosted browser to navigate links, follow redirects, and load external content such as advertisements and libraries. If it identifies a threat, users receive a warning with detailed analysis, guidance on the next steps, and the option to check another link.

“We believe that a safe and secure digital experience is a human right,” said Subbu Sthanu, Chief Commercial Officer at IPVanish. “A VPN is a great start, but people need more than that. The free Link Checker is another excellent addition to users’ security toolbox, and we encourage all to use it alongside a VPN and antivirus software for a safer online experience.”

The Link Checker is the latest tool in a series of recent product updates from IPVanish that combat the rising threats individuals face when using personal technology.

Users can now complete their security arsenal with tools such as the IPVanish Password Generator, a free tool that creates strong passwords that aren’t weak or reused to prevent data breaches. Another recent feature, Threat Protection, adds a robust layer of security to a VPN connection that proactively blocks online trackers, phishing sites, and third-party ads, defenses that a VPN alone cannot provide.

Additional updates planned for 2024 will enhance browsing security and cloud backup functionality for ransomware protection.
