ESET Anti-Phishing

Protect your data and identity with anti-phishing software

What is phishing?

Phishing is an attempt by criminals to acquire confidential information such as passwords and Social Security numbers. Phishing attacks are usually carried out via an email—claiming to be from a legitimate bank or credit card company—that contains a link to a fraudulent website.

Clicking on the link takes you to a webpage requesting you to enter sensitive data such as bank account numbers, passwords and PINs. The information collected is then used to steal your identity, make unauthorized purchases or apply for credit.

Why you need anti-phishing

Phishing emails are increasingly common and can look very convincing.

A successful phishing attempt can result in identity theft, credit card fraud, bad credit and financial loss.

Criminals use phishing attacks because they work: A recent study showed 23 percent of recipients open phishing messages, and 11 percent open attachments.

How ESET anti-phishing technology works

Always up-to-date

ESET's anti-phishing database is updated regularly by ESET, as users' computers receive data about new phishing threats every 20 minutes or so.

Website matching

ESET systems compare URLs against our database of known phishing sites. If a match is found, connection to the URL is discontinued and a warning message is displayed.

Proactive detection

We invent new ways to detect phishing sites based on their malicious behavior - so they are automatically blocked every time you happen to come across them.
