How to find this setting:
Main Console > PC/Mobile > PC & Internet Security > Internet & Email Controls > Instant Messaging
Your security software can protect you from links to unsafe websites sent via popular instant messaging programs.
Select Check for security risks in links to websites received via instant messaging programs and then enable the protection for the instant messaging programs that you use.
You can activate protection for Yahoo! Instant Messenger or Skype just like any other plug-in offered by those services. Follow the directions below to set up protection for America Online Instant Messenger or Windows Live Messenger.
After you click the Install button, American Online activates Trend Micro IM Rating by default. To confirm that the plug-in protects you, follow the steps below.
Once enabled, the IM Rating plug-in will warn you about links to risky websites by displaying one of the following messages in your chat window:
|[Dangerous Link]||The linked page may contain hidden malicious software, or shows signs of involvement in "phishing," a kind of fraud in which fake websites mimic legitimate ones to steal information. You will be prevented from opening these links.|
|[Suspicious Link]||Avoid the site if possible, or exercise caution if you do open the linked page.|
|[Disconnected]||Check your Internet connection and proxy server settings.|
|[Untested Link]||The linked page may use an unsupported protocol (something other than HTTP or HTTPS).|
|Warning Icons||AOL: Skype: Windows Live: Yahoo:|
When enabled, a color-coded rating icon will appear beside each checked link. MSN and Yahoo will also maintain a running list of checked links.
