SB017 Blocks browser pop-ups

Most web browsers come with a range of security options. One option is to automatically block pop-ups. Enabling this can help prevent security incidents caused by malicious pop-ups.

Why is it important?

Pop-ups can be dangerous. Blocking them using a browser's security settings reduces the risk of harm.
