About Protection Online

Phishing websites pretend to be legitimate websites and request your personal information or direct online transactions. Phishing attacks re-direct victims to a fraudulent website where malicious code is downloaded and used to collect your sensitive personal information. By using Norton toolbar, you can protect yourself from phishing attacks. Norton toolbar uses Norton Safe Web and Antiphishing features to protect you while you are online.

Norton Safe Web provides you the safety status of the websites that you visit. It categorizes the websites as one of the following:

  • Scanned safe and secure for online transactions

  • Scanned safe

  • Risks detected

  • Site may contain low security risks

  • Untested

This categorization is based on Symantec's automated analysis system. The Norton Safe Web feature in Norton toolbar lets you know how safe a particular website might be even before you view it.

When you search using Norton toolbar, the generated search results carry site ratings that show how safe the website is. You can mouse over the Site Safety pop-up window to view the Norton rating for the website you visit. You can click the Site Safety pop-up to learn more about the Norton ratings.

The Antiphishing component analyzes the security level of the websites that you visit. It then displays the results in the Site Safety pop-up window along with the Safe Web results. It also blocks navigation to the websites that are confirmed to be fraudulent or suspicious.

In addition, the Site Safety pop-up window includes information about the threats that are found in a website. Symantec analyzes the webpage of a site and verifies if it belongs to the company that it represents.

You can report a website you suspect to be fraudulent to Symantec for further evaluation. You can use Report this site link in the Safety Indicator or the Site Safety pop-up to report a website.

For each website that you visit, Norton Safe Web provides the safety status in the Safety Indicator on the Norton toolbar. You can also click Safety Indicator to learn Full Safe Web Report for the website that you visit. Norton Safe Web provides the following safety statuses for the search results that are generated:
