The "Orange Is the New Black" star has been crowned the "most risky celebrity" to search online in 2018, according to security firm McAfee.

The "Orange is the New Black" actress, recently cast in the title role in the CW series "Batwoman", replaces singer Avril Lavigne as the most unsafe celebrity to search.

This was determined by the firm measuring how many search results on a celebrity contained links to potentially malicious sites.

Coming in at number two on this year's list is reality star Kristin Cavallari, followed by actress Marion Cotillard at number three.

If you're looking up the latest on Kim Kardashian-West's drama with her sisters or her response to Kanye West's Twitter rants then beware.

McAfee's chief scientist Raj Samani said it's down to the "fast-paced world that's heavily influenced by pop culture and social media".

Often consumers put speed and convenience over security by clicking on suspicious links that promise content featuring our favourite celebrities, such as our favourite movies, TV shows or pictures.

While Kourtney Kardashian may have been trying to put some distance between herself and her family in real life, she accomplished that on this year's list of most unsafe celebrities.

Now Rose can add "first Australian to take the top spot on the McAfee Most Dangerous Celebrities study" to her list of accomplishments.

Kim Kardashian is undoubtedly one of the most famous women in the world, so it does not surprise me that she has topped this year's list.

Alongside its list, the cybersecurity firm also published advice on how to stay safe online, urging the public to only stream video from reliable, paid-for sources and only clicking on news stories from sources the user trusts.

To keep internet activity secure, Davis said users should avoid visiting third-party websites that could contain malware, apply operating system and application updates that may include security fixes, invest in security protection tools and use parental control software.
