How to Use the Phishing Filter in IE

It is that time of year where many of us will rely on online shopping to help us through the holidays. Before you click the checkout button, you should be aware of some new features in IE that can help you have a safer shopping experience online. With the launch of Internet Explorer version 7, Microsoft introduced a new feature that blocks phishing sites from your browser. Phishing is a type of malware in which criminals use a fake website in order to collect your personal information. The new IE phishing filter evaluates each web site against a database of known malware sites to let you know if it is valid or not.
