Norton Safe Search Review

Norton safe search is a safety software from norton that lets Internet users know if websites they intend to visit are a risk or not. This is especially important because there are reports nearly every day of identity theft and financial assets being stolen from people’s computers due to malware and ransomware downloaded from malicious websites they visited.

Norton uses a feedback system to keep an eye on the Web. Users can evaluate the performance of websites and whether any suspicious activity occurs using these websites. Site owners can also submit their websites for evaluation. If they meet certain requirements they will be awarded the 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 see safety ratings on top of all results from a search within the browser. This gives you maximum protection from identity hackers, phishing websites and online malware. The extension is light and will not slow down your computer.

However, one major drawback is that Norton’s score isn’t displayed in results for video, image and news searches. This is a serious oversight considering the importance of such results to a user’s experience. It would be ideal to see Norton’s ratings displayed alongside results from ad search since they are typically plagued with malware or scams involving phishing. The extension is still worth a look to stay away from the risks associated with online shopping and browsing.
