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 websites such as banks, companies and services seeking your personal information such as credit card number, social security number, account number or password.
Phishing Protection prevents the users from accessing phishing and fraudulent websites. As soon as a website is accessed, it is scanned for any phishing behavior. If found so, it is blocked to prevent any phishing attempts.
Configuring Phishing Protection
