Mobile Security can block unsafe websites based on the level of protection that you choose. Below are the different protection levels that you can choose:

  • High - provides the most protection by blocking websites that show any signs of fraud or hosting malicious software.
  • Normal - provides appropriate protection for everyday use without aggressively blocking minor risks, so Trend Micro recommends this setting.
  • Low - blocks only websites that have been confirmed as fraudulent or dangerous.

The SafeSurfing feature can also be used to check suspicious links before accessing them. Copy any link that looks suspicious and paste it into SafeSurfing to check if it poses as a risk.
