Safe Browsing only checks websites in Google Chrome, Firefox, and Yandex Browser (requires Android 7.0 or later).

This feature may also work with pre-installed browsers of some devices, for example Samsung Internet on a Samsung device and Huawei Browser on Huawei devices. Other browsers are not supported.

Due to technical limitations, Safe Browsing may not detect all malicious websites that you open in Yandex Browser. We are currently working to overcome these limitations and make the feature work in this browser in the same way it works in other supported browsers.

To use Safe Browsing while browsing the internet, set Google Chrome, Firefox or Yandex Browser as your default browser.

When Safe Browsing is enabled, it automatically checks the default browser. If one of the supported browsers is not set as the current default, the app prompts you to change the default browser to a supported one.

If you do not want to change your default browser, launch one of the supported browsers separately to safely use your personal data on the internet. You can start a supported browser from Kaspersky app All Features section by tapping Safe Browsing > Open browser or by tapping the browser app in your device's app menu.

On Huawei devices without Google services, set Huawei Browser as your default browser to use Safe Browsing.
