Google Chrome already shields you from sketchy websites on the desktop, and now it's doing the same on your smartphone. Grab the latest version of Chrome for Android and you'll get the same Safe Browsing security measures that you've seen on your computer. You'll know if a site is perpetrating a phishing scam or pushing malware. It's not quite as comprehensive as on the desktop (Google saves data by limiting safety info to your region), but it could still prove a lifesaver if it keeps you from falling for a convincing fraud while you're away from your PC.
