When browsing on the Internet you have to be careful which links you click and what sites you visit. The best way to be secure is prevention. This is the first level of protection.

Second, security applications can scan your files and processes and find any problems lurking on your system quite fast.

You also can avoid potential infections by installing a site ranker, which provides ratings and reviews from users on websites for security and reliability. One application that protects you right in the Internet browser is Web Security Guard, which has been described in a previous article.  

A similar tool is McAfee® SiteAdvisor®. This free browser plug-in provides safety advice about websites before you decide to visit them. The software adds small site rating icons to your search results, browser button and optional search box to alert you of potentially risky sites and helps you find safer alternatives.

SiteAdvisor® is compatible with Internet Explorer® (Windows® only) and Firefox® (Mac® and Windows®). Find out how you can download and install the SiteAdvisor® security application by following the instructions listed below.

Download and Install SiteAdvisor®:

  1. Open your Internet browser and go to the SiteAdvisor® homepage.
  2. Click on the “Free Download” button.
  3. Save the file on your hard drive and launch it.
  4. Click on the “Install” button.
  5. When the process is complete, click on the “Finish” button.
  6. If you launch your Internet browser, you may be asked to enable the plug-in, which you will need to do .

Useful Information:

  • McAfee® SiteAdvisor® attaches a green (for safe), yellow (for dubious), or red (for unsafe) icon to each page listed in your browser's search results.
