Trend Micro Security offers three levels of protection from Web threats:

  • High
    Prevents you from opening sites that pose even a slight risk of transmitting viruses and spyware. This setting also blocks harmless sites that might have been hijacked in the past.

  • Normal
    Blocks websites that have characteristics associated with online fraud, or that show signs of transmitting viruses and spyware. This setting also blocks unrated sites that might pose a threat.

  • Low
    Only blocks websites verified as dangerous. These sites can transmit viruses and spyware or actively support online fraud.
