Norton Safe Search Review

Norton safe search, a security software from Norton offers Internet users know whether the websites they’re planning to visit are secure or not. This is particularly important since there are reports every day of identity theft and financial assets being stolen from computers due to malware and ransomware downloaded from malicious websites they have visited.

Norton utilizes a system of community feedback to monitor the Web which allows users to evaluate how sites work and whether there is anything suspicious happening while they are on those websites. Site owners can also submit their websites to be evaluated. If they meet certain requirements they will be awarded the Norton Secured Seal that lets users know that the website is safe and trustworthy.

You can display ratings for safety next to all search results within the browser using the Norton Safe Search Extension for Google Chrome. This offers you the highest level of protection from identity hackers, phishing websites, and online malware. The extension is light and does not slow down your computer.

However, a major drawback is description that Norton’s rating isn’t displayed in results for video, image and news searches. This is a major oversight given the importance of these results to the user’s experience. It would also be nice to see Norton’s rating displayed in conjunction with the results from ads which are usually plagued by malware and frauds using phishing. Nonetheless this extension is worth a shot to stay clear of the risks of browsing and shopping on the Internet.
