Review website information using Antiphishing

Antiphishing provides you the following information about the websites you visit:

  • If the website is safe to enter confidential information

  • If the website is fraudulent

  • If the website is suspicious

  • If the website is known to give annoying results

The Norton Safe Web pop-up window in Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari browsers lets you view more details about the safety status of the websites you visit.

In addition, the Norton Safe Web pop-up window includes information about Norton websites. Website cybercriminals often mimic company websites to create fraudulent websites. Antiphishing identifies the fraudulent websites.

Symantec analyzes the pages of these sites and verifies if they belong to the company that it represents. You can be confident that the information that you provide goes to the company with which you want to do business.

You can report the evaluation of a website you suspect to be fraudulent to Symantec for further evaluation. Use the Report Site option from the Norton Safe Web window to report a website.

The Norton Safe Web pop-up window displays the following messages:
