Default Security measures from phishing


Just a curious thought. Is there any security software to prevent access directing to a duplicate page by phishers? I want to enhance security in my office laptop as I do a lot of online payments. I currently use Kaspersky antivirus. Can that protect from it? I read in this blog (What Is Skimming, Phishing And Online Fraud? | Kevin Thatcher) on how to be careful and avoid falling in scams.
I want to know, apart from that, if there are any software solutions to prevent accessing baits by the hackers.

Default Re: Security measures from phishing

Using common sense and educating users will be better protection than any software can provide. Phishing is complicated, and when you 'squash' one fake site, 10 more can pop up.
Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5
