About Ad-Aware Security Toolbar
Ad-Aware Security Toolbar is a free security software developed by Lavasoft, the makers of Ad-Aware. Built specifically for browsing protection, Ad-Aware Security Toolbar is a free browser plug-in that gives you safety advice as you surf, shop, bank, download and play online
How it Works?
With Ad-Aware Security Toolbar installed, your browser will be upgraded with a website safety rating advisor. This safety rating icon alerts you of potentially risky sites that may harm your computer as you're surfing, banking, downloading or playing online.
Ad-Aware Security Toolbar constantly checks sites against a constantly updated list of reported phishing and malware infected sites. The list is updated every 5-20 minutes and provides real-time browsing protection against the latest web-based exploits, from back door Trojans to phishing sites.
Ad-Aware Security Toolbar is compatible with Windows XP / Vista / 7. Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox is required for the following LavaGuard browser add-ons: Website Safety Rating Advisor, Clear Private Data, Browser Cleaner, MyLavasoft and Quick Search.
