    Field

    Description

    High risk

    Select an action (Allow, Warn, or Block) to take on dangerous URLs. The default action is Block.

    High-risk URLs are verified to be fraudulent or known sources of threats.

    Medium risk

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

    Medium-risk URLs are suspected to be fraudulent or possible sources of threats.

    Low risk

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

    Low-risk URLs are associated with spam or possibly compromised.

    Unrated

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

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