Internet connectivity is a standard feature for personal computers. Unfortunately, the internet has become the primary medium for distributing malicious code. For this reason, it is essential that you carefully consider your Web access protection settings.

Email client protection provides control of email communications received through the POP3(S) and IMAP(S) protocols. Using the plugin program for your email client, ESET NOD32 Antivirus provides control of all communications from/to the email client.

Anti-Phishing protection enables you to block web pages known to distribute phishing content. We strongly recommend that you leave Anti-Phishing enabled.
