How does this protection work?

Your security software uses the Smart Protection Network, which assigns a reputation score to a website based on its credibility. The more dangerous a website, the lower its score. When you try to open a website, your security software checks the site's reputation score and then decides whether or not to block the site based on your Web threat protection strength.

The table illustrates what kinds of pages are blocked based on your protection strength.
