Criminals can hide spyware that downloads automatically when you open what seems like a harmless website. Sometimes they put up fraudulent pages in place of legitimate ones to steal sensitive information. Good friends on Facebook, LinkedIn, or X might sometimes share links to untrustworthy sites without even knowing it.


After installing the Trend Micro Privacy Scanner, you can easily spot links to risky websites and avoid opening them by mistake. What you don’t click can’t hurt you.


Intuitive color-coded safety ratings integrate seamlessly and effortlessly into the results from popular search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, and Baidu. The same ratings apply to hyperlinks appearing in messages that you open in Gmail, as well as web-based email services from Microsoft and Yahoo.

No matter whether you prefer Facebook, LinkedIn, or X, links posted to all of them automatically receive ratings too. You can also easily audit the privacy settings for your favorite social networks directly from the browser window.

The toolbar can even check the settings of the web browser itself to help make sure that you do not reveal too much to untrustworthy websites.

If it helps, I was able to access my email again by removing the extension, and then reinstalling it.
