Norton Safe Search is a free program for web security that is focused on keeping an individual’s online information safe and preventing users from visiting phishing and risky websites. It utilizes Norton’s Safe Web Technology to rate the security of official website a website and warn users about potentially harmful websites that might contain phishing or high-risk virus.
In addition to protecting personal information and online transactions, the app also monitors a phone’s operating system for threats to the operating system. It can also scan the Wi-Fi connection of a phone for any potential threats and block websites trying to access sensitive information or download malware. The Android app also comes with features such as Link Guard that protects your device from malicious websites, and Privacy Report, which reveals what information apps share with other services.
A great feature is the ability to write reviews on a website. This feature can help users stay away from dangerous websites and also let them share their experience. Website owners can also have their site reviewed if they sign up for a no-cost account and then submit the site to the Norton community. After the site is evaluated, it can receive the Norton Secured Seal. The seal will be displayed on the results pages of Norton Identity Safe, Norton 360 and other Norton users.
If the Norton product is installed, like Norton internet security or Norton 360, the toolbar that grants access to Norton safe search will be automatically installed. If the toolbar isn’t working it can be fixed by contacting Norton’s update center through the Google chrome toll-free number.
