The Authentic-ID Toolbar protects you from phishing and fraud by warning you when a Web site matches a list of known phishing sites, has suspicious characteristics, or its authenticity cannot be verified. Phishing attacks use spoofed e-mails and fraudulent Web site designed to fool you into divulging personal financial data such as credit card numbers, account passwords, and social security numbers. The Authentic-ID Toolbar easily plugs into your Internet Explorer browser. It warns you when you visit a known or suspicious Web address no matter how you access it e-mail, Web browser, chat, or document link. Authentic-ID uses a combination of techniques to check each Web address you visit: signature database checks, behavioral analysis, and community feedback. You can save your own list of sites too. Authentic-IDs databases are updated in real time.
