We understand the importance of navigating the web seamlessly and safely. Browsing online may not pose quite the same challenge as actual surfing, but it comes with its own threats and surprises – from phishing and spam through to unwanted advertising pop-ups. These may seem little more than harmless obstacles in your path, but fail to navigate them carefully and you could find yourself in treacherous waters.
