Norton safe search, a security program from Norton It lets Internet users know whether the websites they’re visiting are secure or not. This is vital because nearly every day, there are reports of financial assets and identity theft being accessed from computers by ransomware and malware that was downloaded from dangerous websites.
Norton uses a system of community feedback to examine the Web and allow users to examine the way websites function and whether or not something suspicious occurs when they visit these sites. In addition, site owners can submit their own sites for evaluation and if they meet certain criteria they can be awarded a Norton Secured Seal, which informs users that the website is secure and reliable.
With the Norton Safe Search extension for Google Chrome, you can get safety ratings added next to all search results in the browser. This gives you maximum protection from identity hackers, phishing websites, and online malware. The extension is lightweight and won’t cause any slowdown to your computer.
One of the major issues is the fact that Norton’s ratings do not get displayed in the search results for videos, images, and news. This is a huge oversight due to the importance of these types of results in a user’s search experience. It would be great to see the Norton ratings displayed alongside the results of ad searches, as they are often infected with malware or frauds using phishing. However, the extension is worth a try to avoid the dangers of shopping and browsing the Internet.
