Norton Safe Search Review

Norton safe search is a security application from Norton that lets Internet users know whether websites they intend to visit are risky 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 ransomware and malware downloaded from malicious websites they visited.

Norton utilizes a system of community feedback to examine the Web, whereby users can assess the performance of websites and whether there is anything suspicious happening when they visit the websites. Site owners can also submit their websites for evaluation. If they meet the required criteria and are deemed to be safe, they’ll receive a Norton Secured Seal that lets users know the site is secure and trustworthy.

With the Norton Safe Search extension for Google Chrome, you can get safety ratings displayed in the results in the search bar. This gives you maximum protection from identity theft, phishing websites, and online viruses. The extension is lightweight and won’t cause any slowdown to your PC.

However, a major drawback is that Norton’s rating is not shown in the results for video, image and news searches. This is a huge oversight due to the importance of these types of results for a user’s experience when searching. It would also be nice if Norton’s ratings were shown alongside ad results, which are often maliciously infected and scams involving phishing. However this extension is worth a try to avoid the risks of browsing and shopping on the Internet.
