Paypal Might Block Apple Safari,Opera And Other Browsers Classified As Unsafe.

Paypal has plans to block browsers classified as unsafe.The classification is based on exclusion of anti-phishing tools.Mozilla Firfox3 and IE7 has included Extended Verification SSL certificates which is expected to be the standard of browser safety and paypal expects the unsafe browsers include this on their updated versions.Browsers run on mobile devices iphone and gaming systems like Nintendo wii would also be barred.This information was provided by paypal for its shareholders.

Paypal is also planning improved security measures with Yahoo to prevent fraudulent mails faked as been sent by paypal.Paypal would notify the user on his first login using the unsafe browser.After that the browser will be entirely blocked.
