What is Banking protection?
Banking protection is an additional security layer that comes with our security software. As soon as you open an online banking web site with your web browser, Banking protection activates automatically, elevating the security level of your online session. Upon activation, a flyer is displayed at the top of the screen telling you that the Banking protection mode is now turned on. When the Banking protection mode is on, all new connections from the PC are blocked. By blocking the connections, banking trojans and other malware cannot send your private information, such as user credentials, to criminals.
When you start your banking session, Banking protection puts all other network connections on hold to keep you secure – and restores them again when the session is over. And all the while it still allows access to sites you may need while you bank. Naturally, these sites are verified safe by F-Secure.
