    This is something that has come up before that I thought had been addressed but it doesn't look like it has.

    If I explicitly protect my bank's HTTPS website and add some protected information, e.g. a password to the Advanced tab, SafeOnline stops me from typing that information into a different website. This is an anti phishing protection as I understand it.

    However, there is no protection against phishing if I use copy and paste of this information (which I do regularly from keepass).

    I thought this was something that was going to be implemented; in fact I thought PrevxHelp said the code was set up so that this could be enabled. ;)

    Any comments please.

    We've been considering this but there are some other issues at hand (namely, how the clipboard actually deals with data). It hasn't been forgotten, however, but we're going to have to be using a different approach than originally planned for reliability reasons :)

    I've noticed one thing, maybe you can make it so that Prevx remember site that user wishes to be blocked always.
    There is one site Prevx finds as malicious and it always asks me to 'Block' or 'Ignore'.
