Norton safe search is a security application from Norton that helps Internet users know if websites they plan to visit are potentially dangerous or not. This is crucial since almost every day there are reports of financial assets and identity theft being accessed from computers by malware and ransomware that was downloaded from malicious websites.

Norton uses a system of feedback from the community to keep an eye on the Web, whereby users can examine the way websites function and whether or not anything suspicious happens while they are on these websites. In addition, site owners are able to submit their own sites for review and if they meet certain criteria, they can receive the Norton Secured Seal, which assures users that the site is secure and trustworthy.

With the Norton Safe Search extension for Google Chrome, you can get safety ratings added next to all results in the search bar. This gives you complete security against identity thieves, phishing sites and online viruses. The extension is lightweight and won’t slow your PC.

One of the major issues is that Norton’s rating is not listed in the search results for videos, images or news. This is a serious oversight, considering the importance of these results to a user’s experience. It would also be nice to see Norton’s rating displayed in conjunction with the results from ads which are often malware infested and scams involving phishing. Nonetheless it is worth trying to avoid the dangers of browsing and shopping on the Internet.
