Norton safe search, a security program from Norton It lets Internet users know if the websites they’re planning to visit are secure or not. This is vital because there are reports almost every day of identity theft and financial assets being stolen from computers due to malware and ransomware downloaded from malicious websites that they visited.
Norton utilizes a feedback from the community system to examine the Web. Users can assess the way websites function and if anything suspicious occurs while on these sites. Site owners can also submit their sites to be evaluated. If they meet certain criteria, they will receive a Norton Secured Seal that lets users know that the website is safe and trustworthy.
With the Norton Safe Search extension for Google Chrome, you can see safety ratings on top of all results from a search within the browser. This provides you with the best protection from identity theft, phishing websites, and online viruses. The extension is light and will not slow down your PC.
But, the biggest drawback is that Norton’s rating is not included in the results for image, video and news searches. This is a pity due to the importance of these types of results for a user’s search experience. It would be even better to see Norton’s rating displayed in conjunction with the results from ads that are typically maliciously infected and frauds using phishing. However it’s worth a try to avoid the risks of browsing and shopping on the Internet.
