Phishing attacks, which target users through
fraudulent websites and emails to steal critical
information, continue to pose a significant danger to
internet security. Traditional ways of detecting phishing
websites frequently fall behind the shifting tactics used by
fraudsters. Machine learning approaches are being used
as a powerful tool for improving phishing detection
capabilities in this kind of context. The current study
investigates a novel Machine Learning Model for
Detecting Phishing Websites that employ advanced
algorithms and feature selection methodologies.Through a rigorous
experimental approach, the study evaluates their
performance using key metrics including accuracy,
precision, and recall.Conversely, when the data was split 50-50,
Random Forest yielded better results.
