Configuring Time-of-Click Protection Settings

If you enable Time-of-Click Protection, Trend Micro Email Security rewrites URLs in email messages for further analysis. Trend Micro analyzes those URLs at the time of click and will block them if they are malicious to protect you.

  1. Go to Inbound Protection > Spam Filtering > Time-of-Click Protection.
  2. Under Time-of-Click Protection Settings, do the following:
    • Dangerous: Select an action ( Allow, Warn or Block) to take on dangerous URLs. The default value is Block.

      Dangerous URLs are verified to be fraudulent or known sources of threats.

    • Highly Suspicious: Select an action ( Allow, Warn or Block) to take on highly suspicious URLs. The default value is Block.

      Highly suspicious URLs are suspected to be fraudulent or possible sources of threats.

    • Suspicious: Select an action ( Allow, Warn or Block) to take on suspicious URLs. The default value is Warn.

      Suspicious URLs are associated with spam or possibly compromised.

    • Untested: Select an action ( Allow, Warn or Block) to take on untested URLs. The default value is Warn.

      While Trend Micro actively tests URLs for safety, users may encounter untested pages when visiting new or less popular websites. Blocking access to untested pages can improve safety but can also prevent access to safe pages.

  3. Click Save.
