Emisoft Internet Security

Recommended Posts

I have installed trial version of EIS.  I have been using F-Secure Internet Security which, when entering banking or shopping site, shows a blue pop up 'banner' indicating the site is safe. When entering my  same banking sites with EIS,  the web address appears in green but nothing else to show the process will be safe.   Am I missing something which I have not activated or is this the only indication I will receive.

Thanks.

Hey redvet and wellcome to the forum =)

 

I am just an user like you, but I hope that I can give you a satisfactory answer anyway?

The Behaviour Blocker is the Banking protection, and will catch any change done to your browser and any other suspicious behaviour while you are doing your online Banking. You will not see any notification when you are visiting a secure website unless suspicious activity occurs, then will, as said, the behavior blocker step into action. Maybe this thread can help or supplement you question further: Banking Protection in EAM/EIS..?

Hi Tempus

 

Many tks for your prompt response and info.

 

When the product information mentioned Behaviour Blocker I thought it might be some specific item in the software that needed checking off or banking website info adding in.   I also had tried Webroot Anywhere in which programme quite a few things had to be added.  

 

Anyway.....  so far everything appears OK with EIS and thanks again.

Have another query here regarding EIS.   I notice that only when using Internet Explorer for browsing does the GREEN appear in the web address.  When I use Opera or Avant browser the 'safe' GREEN colour in the web address does not show.  Is EIS only ok with Internet Explorer ? :unsure:

Emsisoft Internet Security and Emsisoft Anti Maleware is compatible Internet Explorer, Google Chrome,Firefox, and i don't know about Opera though since i never use that browser before. Also, can you explain clearly what do you mean by the green color in the web address?

Oh that is what you mean, you should explain better next time because you got me confused about " green color". Anyway, yeah my Google Chrome browser does show https in green color and i'm using Emsisoft Anti Malware 9 latest beta. You can try this paypal site see if it shows green color because mine does. https://www.paypal.com/home

Hello redvet

 

Emsisoft Internet security and the anti malware version do not use any browser plugins or extensions. Its level of protection is totally independent of what you prefer to use as your browser. It will always give you the same level of protection, regardless of you are visiting normal websites or more secure (https) websites. The green color in Internet explorer is indicating that the site you are on, is using " Extended Validation". Every browser has its own way to show the user, that the website you are visiting is a secure site, and that the certificate has been validated. Btw see this link: https://www.expeditedssl.com/pages/visual-security-browser-ssl-icons-and-design.html

At 82 years old, I should be the one being confused :excl: :excl: ...   I presume the forum is for all levels of experience and if so, you should accept that not everyone has good level of I/T knowledge or expertise but thanks for your response.

As Tempus already mentioned, our protection is always on. No matter the website you visit. Therefore it is kind of pointless to display a popup when visiting a protected site as every website is protected. The "green" indicator is controlled solely by your browser and usually reflects that the web page you are accessing is using a SSL/TLS protected connection. It has nothing to do with our product.
