EtherAddressLookup

Automatically adds links to strings that look like Ethereum addresses so you can quickly look them up on your favourite block explorer.

Prevents you from interacting with known phishing domains by wiping the DOM and displaying text notifying you.

The blacklists found in this repo serve both the EAL Chrome Extension & MetaMask Chrome Extension. We use a Levenshtein distance algoritm to detect similar URLs, so if you encounter an errounously-blocked website, please add it to the whitelist.

    • If you see a scam website being passed around that isn't blockced, please add it to the blackliast.
  3. Click the pencil icon in upper right.
  4. Type "yourdomain.com", on line #2 (right below the first [)

Blacklisted Domains

The blacklist can only be updated by myself (@409H) and MyEtherWallet (@tayvano). This is a to prevent anyone from modifying the blacklist (ie: removing something). To request a change to the blacklist, please open an issue or open a pull request with the changes. Make sure you give some details on why the changes are needed.

Whitelisted Domains

The whitelist can only be updated by myself (@409H) and MyCrypto (@tayvano). The whitelist will prevent any false-positives from happening with the Levenshtein algo (special thanks to @sogoiii). If you find a domain that is wrongly blacklisted, then please open an issue or open a pull request with the changes.
