Data Theft Prevention helps secure your sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or passwords on websites.

Upon detecting any attempt to send protected information to the Internet, whether through a web page, email or an instant message, Trend Micro blocks it automatically.

This prevents hackers and spyware from stealing your information. It works on popular web browsers and email programs.
