Phishing filter - IE 7

The Phishing Filter warns you if the website you are visiting might be impersonating a trusted website.  The Phishing Filter does this by first checking the address of the website you are visiting against a list of website addresses stored on your computer that have been reported to Microsoft as legitimate ("legitimate list").

Automatic checking of all websites by Phishing Filter is Off by default. The Phishing Filter can be turned On and Off from the Internet Explorer Tools menu.

To turn On automatic checking of all websites:

  • Click on Tools
  • Click on Phishing Filter
  • Click Turn On Automatic Website Checking

IE - Phishing 1

Make sure Turn On automatic Phishing Filter is selected.

IE - Phishing 2

Now click on OK.

Want to check if a website is secure or not?

The phishing filter will run a quick check on the website to see if it is legimate or not, a pop-up will then appear, informing you of the relevant information.
