TrendProtect - Think twice before visiting a Web page

This is an age where everyone is depended on internet. But the internet, as everyone knows is not a safe place always. Hidden threats, unwanted contents and other illegal things are dominating the net. In this context safety is by no doubt a priority, but should an antivirus alone handle all these? No, some other precautions are also required. One such requirement is Trend Protect from Trendsecure.

TrendProtect is a free browser plug-in (currently for internet explorer only) that helps you avoid Web pages with unwanted content and hidden threats. Like MacAfee’s Site Adviser, it rates the current page and pages listed in Google, MSN, and Yahoo search results. One main feature of TrendProtect is its ‘Family settings’ which filters unwanted contents like adult sites, gambling and other illegal sites from the search results.

TrendProtect adds a new button to your browser's toolbar area. The icon and color of the button changes to indicate whether the current page you are viewing is safe, dangerous, trusted, or suspicious, or whether it contains unwanted content.

Click the TrendProtect button and select Options to customize the view, trusted pages, content categories, and connection settings. Select Check Your Computer's Security from the menu or click Scan computer for viruses in the page advisory to access free scanning and cleanup services from their popular HouseCall.

For and Against: However, this service is still in its childhood. While checking and comparing with MacAfee Site Advisor, TrendProtect database is quite small. One advantage is its ‘Family settings’ which filters out unwanted contents like pornographic pages, from the search results. If you like, download and install it from here.
