Browsing Protection ensures that malicious Web sites are blocked while the users in a group are accessing the Internet. Once the feature is enabled, the site that is accessed is scanned and is blocked if found to be malicious.

Phishing is a fraudulent attempt, usually made through email, to steal your personal information. These emails usually appear to have been sent from seemingly well-known organizations and sites such as banks, companies and services seeking for your personal information such as credit card number, social security number, account number or password.
