Norton Safe Search Review


Norton safe search is a safety software from norton that lets Internet users know whether websites they plan to visit are risky or not. This is particularly important since there are reports nearly every day of identity theft and financial assets being stolen from computers of people due to ransomware and malware downloaded from malicious websites they visited.

Norton uses a system of feedback from users to examine the Web which allows users to evaluate how sites work and whether or not something suspicious occurs while they are on these sites. Site owners can also submit their websites to be evaluated. If they meet certain standards they will be awarded the Norton Secured Seal that lets users know that the site is safe and trustworthy.

With the Norton Safe Search extension for Google Chrome, you can get safety ratings that are displayed in the results in the search bar. This gives you maximum security against identity thieves, phishing sites and online virus. The extension is light and won’t slow your computer.

However, a major drawback is that Norton’s score is not shown in the results for video, image and news searches. This is a huge oversight given the importance of these results to a user’s experience. It norton safe search would be pleasing to see Norton’s rating displayed alongside the results of ad searches which are usually fraudulent and scams that involve phishing. The extension is still worth a try to guard against the risks associated with online shopping and browsing.
