The Download Protection feature in Total Defense Anti-Phishing provides additional security for downloads. High Risk websites can download threats onto your computer.
The Total Defense Anti-Phishing filter verifies the URL of the website from which you are trying to download the file and if it is found to be a high risk website, will give you an alert pop up informing that the URL is high risk with the options to download or cancel the download.
You can download the file if you are sure about the validity of the file just by clicking the Download button on the alert pop up.
NOTE: This is Pre-download security and if you want to disable this security alert, you have to disable the Total Defense Anti-Phishing from Total Defense Security Center. This feature works only with Internet Explorer.
