Norton safe search is a safety software from norton that lets Internet users know if sites they plan to visit are dangerous or not. This is crucial since almost every day, there are reports of identity thefts and financial assets being stolen from computers due to malware and ransomware that was downloaded from malicious websites.
Norton uses an approach of community feedback to check the Web, whereby users can examine the way websites function and whether or not anything suspicious happens when they visit these sites. Site owners can also submit their ideals virtual data room websites for review. If they meet certain standards they will be awarded a Norton Secured Seal that lets users know that the site is secure and trustworthy.
With the Norton Safe Search extension for Google Chrome, you can get safety ratings added next to all results from a search within the browser. This gives you complete protection against identity thieves, phishing websites and online virus. The extension is lightweight and won’t slow your computer.
However, a major drawback is that Norton’s score isn’t displayed in results for image, video and news searches. This is a serious oversight considering the importance of such results to the user’s experience. It would also be nice to see Norton’s rating displayed with ad results, which are often maliciously infected and phishing scams. It is still a good option to avoid the dangers associated with online shopping and browsing.
