About Web Security

Web Security enhances protection against malicious websites. Web Security queries Trend Micro's extensive web security database to check the reputation of URLs that are being accessed and the blocks or allows access to the URL.

There are three security levels:

  • High: Blocks pages that are verified fraud pages or threat sources, suspected fraud pages or threat sources, associated with spam or possibly compromised, unrated pages.

  • Normal: Blocks pages that are verified fraud pages or threat sources, suspected fraud pages or threat sources. This is the Trend Micro recommended setting.

  • Low: Blocks pages that are verified fraud pages or threat sources.

Additionally, sites can be added to the blocked or approved lists to override the settings.

Tip:

Visit Trend Micro Site Safety Center to check the reputation of a site (and request for a reclassification if you disagree with the rating).
