SafeToOpen is a cybersecurity company that delivers innovative solutions to safeguard businesses and individuals from online threats, including scams, phishing, and smishing (phishing via SMS).[1] With a highly skilled team of experts, the company offers comprehensive cybersecurity services and cutting-edge technologies to establish a safe and secure digital environment for its clients.[2][3]


SafeToOpen was founded in 2014 by Maziar Janbeglou, based in Auckland, New Zealand. During his Ph.D. studies at the University of Auckland, Janbeglou identified the significant challenges presented by phishing attacks, one of the most prevalent and crippling cyber threats targeting individuals and global businesses. Addressing the issue, he established SafeToOpen, a cloud-based service that swiftly detects and protects users from zero-day phishing web pages. Utilizing advanced software, the company's solution analyzes all visual and invisible elements of a web page, instantly issuing warnings if any malicious content is detected. In addition to leveraging threat intelligence feeds to protect against known malicious web pages, SafeToOpen's technology operates independently to detect zero-day phishing web pages.[4]

Furthermore, SafeToOpen actively contributes to the global cybersecurity community by reporting newly detected phishing links to its technology partners, fostering a collective effort to combat cybercriminal activities.[5]


SafeToOpen provides a range of essential services to ensure online safety and protect individuals and businesses from potential risks. These services include:

  • Report Unsafe Links: SafeToOpen allows users to report suspicious or potentially harmful links, helping to identify and prevent potential cyber threats.

With these comprehensive services, SafeToOpen is dedicated to developing products that promote online safety, risk mitigation, and a secure digital environment.


SafeToOpen offers a range of products to enhance online security and protect against phishing attacks. These products provide comprehensive solutions to safeguard individuals and organizations from various online threats.

  • SafeToOpen Online Security: SafeToOpen Online Security is a browser extension that detects and warns users about suspicious web pages, protecting against phishing attacks. It analyzes web pages requesting sensitive information and prevents users from entering data on unsafe pages or attachments, ensuring online privacy and security.[6][7]
  • SafeToOpen Email Verification: SafeToOpen Email Verification streamlines email verification for security teams, promptly responding to reports of suspicious emails. It provides a concise summary and detailed report of links and attachments in the reported email, reducing human errors and saving valuable time for verification.
  • SafeToOpen Customer Email Verification: SafeToOpen Customer Email Verification safeguards customers engaging with the organization’s online services. By enabling customers to verify suspicious emails through an email address like [email protected], the service provides real-time responses to determine if the emails are legitimate or potential phishing attempts. This enhances customer protection and aids in the prompt detection and resolution of phishing attacks.
  • SafeToOpen Brand & Customer Protection: SafeToOpen Brand & Customer Protection is a hassle-free tool that detects unseen phishing web pages impersonating organizations' brands.

  • SafeToOpen API: The SafeToOpen API adds an extra layer of protection by enabling existing security tools to detect new phishing web pages and safeguard staff members in real-time. It mitigates the risk associated with relying solely on generic toolkits that only protect against known unsafe pages. When an API call is made, the integration software connects to the URL and checks it against the SafeToOpen Profile. The originator of the API call receives valuable information about the phishing brand, targeted industry, and phishing accuracy, facilitating prompt action against potential threats.
  • SafeToOpen Staff Email Verification: SafeToOpen Staff Email Verification verifies suspicious emails received by staff. It provides a summary and comprehensive report to the security team, enabling proactive identification of potential threats. This product helps prevent the compromise of sensitive data despite the existence of secure email gateways and encryption tools.
  • SafeToOpen Suspicious Message Verification: SafeToOpen Suspicious Message Verification tackles the rise of harmful links and phishing attempts through text messages. Using advanced technologies like NLP, AI, ML, and CV, this product analyzes the content and links in reported suspicious texts. SafeToOpen promptly responds to the sender, assessing the message's safety.
