Visiting an unsafe website and becoming a victim of cybercrime can cost you time and money. That's why our intelligent network now has built-in security and gives you a warning before visiting dangerous sites to keep you and your personal information safe. All at no extra cost to you.

We're protecting you online.

Becoming a victim of cybercrime can have long-lasting effects on your life - your finances, credit score, medical records and more can be at risk.
To help keep you safe, our built-in security now protects you from online threats like:

Malware

A type of malicious programming that spies on your computer activity and steals your personal information.

Phishing

A form of fraud where criminals pretend to be a trusted service or company, and then trick you into revealing your information.

Virus

Another type of malware that infects your computer and in turn, infects others on a network. The infected computers are used by hackers for criminal purposes.
You're in control.

Our goal is to keep you safe, but you can always bypass our security alerts and choose to proceed to a link or website even if we do not recommend it. Simply click the link on the alert that says "continue anyway" and you will be redirected to the website.
