About

Malicious Websites

A malicious website is a site that attempts to install malware (a general term for anything that will disrupt computer operation, gather your personal information or, in a worst-case scenario, gain total access to your machine) onto your device. This usually requires some action on your part, however, in the case of a drive-by download, the website will attempt to install software on your computer without asking for permission first.

"Safe Web" keeps your family members safe from malicious websites, while surfing the internet.

Porn Websites

Websites for watching porn videos are not distributing malware themselves. They badly want users to return and keep using their websites. However, there’s something called malvertising, and this is the real issue. Malware is more commonly distributed through advertising networks. One inconsiderate click and you could end up downloading a virus, Trojan, worm, or whatever else is out there that can lock down your computer. On the other hand porn sites push users (especially kids) to sexting and adopting an unhealthy view toward sex in general.

"Safe Web"

Internet security software can’t always detect bad software from malicious websites and drive-by downloads. "Safe Web" extension is the first line of defence against malicious and porn websites, preventing you from getting them in the first place. "Safe Web" is a simple light-weight, but yet powerful Parental Control / Web Filter, that filters websites according to their category. It has all the features that can be found to other Anti-Porn / Anti-Malicious PRO applications. Unlike other similar extensions, "Safe Web" filters websites based on sophisticated algorithms, not just their text content (e.g. words: porn, sex, anal, e.t.c.), so it works on all websites even those written to Arabic and Chinese languages.
