    Does anyone knows exactly how it works? I just received a phishing email and copy/pasted the link in the browser to see if anti-phishing protection worked. Nothing happened. Tonight at home I'll test the link with KIS that's installed on gf computer but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone knew how Bitdefender antiphishing module worked.

    Is it trying to analyse the webpage or simply has a blacklist?

    I think antiphishing needs a lot to be improved, most of the times when i click on a link inside a web page it block it, even when it's a reliable link

    Can you give some examples of reliable links wrongly detected as phishing?
