Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This application protects against attempts to steal personal data, although its monitoring results were hit-or-miss. Norton Confidential is a pretty lengthy download, requiring 31 MBs to operate. After entering your name and other personal info for the installation, you'll receive the program's download link via e-mail.

Its vibrant interface is easy to program for protection against phishing. The program, which works with Internet Explorer, reveals any efforts to steal information by displaying a suspicious site message on its toolbar. A stat report of fraudulent sites and suspicious programs is given, along with some basic security suggestions to guard your PC.

Beyond just giving tips, it actually blocks fraudulent sites from gathering your personal log-in information. Unfortunately, we frequently received engine error messages on the toolbar rather than accurate site analyses, and we were encouraged to restart our browser to no effect. Norton Confidential also slowed Web surfing and Windows, and was even slow at uninstalling itself. With some of its efforts ineffective, this 15-day trial may not always provide the reliability you need to fight the war against identity theft.

Developer's Description

Norton Confidential is an innovative new security solution that will help protect you while you are most vulnerable when banking or shopping online, or at any Web site where you are submitting passwords, account numbers or other confidential information. The Norton Confidential toolbar integrates into your Internet Explorer browser and provides clear visual indication of whether it's safe or unsafe to proceed with a login or transaction. Prior to an interaction that requires your personal data, Norton Confidential quickly and automatically inspects both the PC and the Web site, protecting you from known or suspicious phishing sites, crimeware and other threats designed to steal your confidential information. If a threat is detected, Norton Confidential protects your information from an attack such as getting phished by fraudulent Web sites, or having your keystrokes secretly recorded by identity thieves.
