An integrated virus scanner verifies all your downloads and alerts you to any files that may contain malicious software.
Suspicious files are flagged in red for you to review. Files with unknown sources may sometimes be flagged—you can choose to keep it or delete it immediately.
Websites suspected of phishing or malware will automatically trigger a warning before you enter the site.
Websites are rated by level of security. Once you are on a website, the shield icon will turn green, orange or red to reflect its level of safety.
The database of these suspicious files is stored on our servers and constantly updated. This way, no user browsing history is collected or shared.
When you visit a website, UR will redirect you to the encrypted version, if it exists. A shield icon will appear in green to the left of the address bar when you are on the secure version of a website.
Websites often accept two protocols which allow you to connect to the website. The original, HTTP, has been around since the beginning of the internet. HTTPS, however is newer and it encrypts your data on the website. This is especially important for sensitive information.
Where possible, UR will redirect users to the more secure, HTTPS version of a website.
The RSA key size has been doubled for SSL certificates. This is especially important for sites where you transfer for secure information, as well as for when you use real-time discussions, like video chats.
Key size is a cryptography term—it refers to is the number of bits that are used in an algorithm to encrypt or decrypt information. A larger key size increases your security as breaking it would take much longer than the standard 1024-bit size.
