Secure your financial transactions
Prevent having your credit card or online banking data hacked and your money stolen. Use SafeZone, an Internet Security feature that secures sensitive transactions. Set your favorite banking or shopping sites to automatically launch SafeZone to ensure that all of your sensitive financial transactions stay private.
Make your computer a data fortress
Your private data shouldn’t be available to anyone but you. So the silent firewall in Internet Security blocks hackers from stealing sensitive personal data from your PC. This new version was rebuilt to make faster decisions, work even better with Windows, and fully support IPv6.
Say "Goodbye" to spam & phishing scams
The majority of spam includes harmful ‘phishing’ links built specifically to exploit your PC or credit card data. This type of phishing email tries to convince you it’s from a legitimate sender. Our anti-spam technology filters out such nuisances to save your time and protect you from potential headaches.
