SAFE is a
security service you can install on your computer, smartphone or table to
protect yourself and your loved ones against various types of threats.
SAFE provides virus protection
against malicious applications (apps) that try to invade your privacy and steal
valuable personal information, such as your identification details or your
credit card details. SAFE also prevents criminals from using such apps to take
control of your device and misuse it to spread harmful software or spam
messages to other devices.
SAFE also protects you and your
loved ones while browsing the Internet with features, such as:
(referred to as Safe Browsing on mobile platforms), which uses advanced
cloud-based web reputation checking to verify the web pages and make sure only
safe websites can be accessed;
Banking Protection, which
protects your online banking activities by securing the connection when you
access an online banking portal;
and website safety ratings,
which categorize the search results and give an indication how safe or
potentially malicious a web link might be.
To use the most up-to-date
protection, you can opt to participate in the Security Cloud, an advanced and
cooperative cloud-based scanning technology that checks the reputation of any
file found on the device. This offers the fastest response time against new
threats and protects against both existing and future threats.
