Everyday activities like online banking, shopping and browsing can expose your information, making you more vulnerable to cybercrime. Norton Safe Search is a search engine focused on online security that gives you peace of mind by letting you know if a site is potentially unsafe – before it’s too late.


• AVOID RISKY SITES: We’ll help keep your online interactions safer by identifying and/or filtering out suspicious sites from your search results.1 This includes malware infected sites, phishing sites, unsafe external sites and more.

• VIEW WEBSITE SAFETY RATINGS: We’ll show you safety ratings for your search results1 to help minimize your risk while searching online.


In order to rate websites, Norton Safe Search uses technology that performs thorough analysis using signature-based file scanning, intrusion detection engines, behavioral detection, and install/uninstall analysis to identify security risks such as phishing sites, malicious downloads, browser exploits and links to unsafe external sites.

Norton Safe Web benefits from a network of millions of Norton Community Watch end-points that automatically submit in real-time suspicious URLs to the Norton Safe Web server for detailed analysis. This allows Norton Safe Web to quickly hone in on newly infected sites.

In addition to analyzing suspicious sites submitted by Norton end-points, Norton Safe Search uses technology that crawls the Web and performs thorough analysis on millions of Web sites.
