A method for reducing unintentional user clicks due to reflow and clickjacking in mobile apps. Links in electronic documents such as web pages may be marked as special or protected. When a protected link is present, the document presentation environment prevents selection of links that exhibit untrustworthy behavior, which might have been clicked by accident in an attempt to select the protected link. Examples of untrustworthy behavior include repositioning the link just prior to the link selection or presenting the link in a transparent manner.
