Norton Safe Search Review

Norton safe search is a security program from Norton that helps Internet users know if sites they intend to visit are potentially dangerous or not. This is crucial since almost every day, there are reports of financial assets and identity theft being stolen from computers due to ransomware and malware downloaded from malicious websites.

Norton utilizes a feedback from the community system to keep an eye on the Web. Users can review the way websites function and if anything suspicious occurs while using these websites. In addition, site owners can submit their sites for evaluation and if they meet certain requirements they can be awarded the Norton Secured Seal, which informs users that the site is secure and reliable.

With the Norton Safe Search extension for Google Chrome, you can get safety ratings added alongside all results in the search bar. This will protect you from identity theft, phishing websites, and online virus. The extension is lightweight and does not slow down your computer.

One major issue is that Norton’s score isn’t displayed in results for image, video and news searches. This is a huge oversight, considering the importance of such results to the user’s experience. It would also be great to see Norton’s rating displayed in conjunction with the results from ads, which are often plagued by malware and scams involving phishing. Nonetheless this extension is worth trying to avoid the dangers of shopping and browsing the Internet.
