Norton safe search is a security software from norton that lets Internet users know if sites they plan to visit are dangerous or not. This is vital because there are reports virtually every day of identity theft and financial assets being taken from computers of people due to malware and ransomware downloaded from malicious websites that they visited.

Norton utilizes a feedback from the community system to keep an eye on the Web. Users can assess the performance of websites and whether any suspicious activity occurs using these websites. Site owners can also submit their sites to be evaluated. If they meet certain standards they will be awarded a 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 websites and online virus. The extension is lightweight and does not slow down your computer.

A major drawback is the fact that Norton’s ratings do not get shown in the results of searches for videos, images or news. This is a huge oversight considering the importance of these types of results for a user’s search experience. It would be pleasing to see Norton’s rating included in the results of search results for ads which are usually malware-infested or scams involving phishing. It is still worth using to protect yourself from the dangers that come with online shopping and browsing.
