How do I Enable Safe Search and Disable Safe Web in the new 16.5 update?

[ Edited ]

Hi -

 

Regarding NIS 2009...

 

Just got the new 16.5 patch and noticed at first glance that there is not a way to enable Safe Search via the Norton Toolbar and disable Safe Web via the NIS 2009 UI.

 

Is there something that I am missing?

 

-ALSO -

 

Is Safe Web integrated just for use with Google? How can I get more information on it?

 

Thanks.

To enable Safe Search via the Toolbar, click the "Norton" name in the upper left corner, then "Show Search Box".

 

As for Norton Safe Web, under the Identity section of the main product page, click Settings. In Identity Settings, you will see a Norton Safe Web listing, with an ON/OFF switch.

 

If you're looking for more information about Safe Web, check out the Norton Safe Web page, and signup today:

Hi Tony,

 

Thought I was missing something simple.

 

I *right clicked* on the NORTON porton of the toolbar, instead of left clicking on the down arrow just to the right of the Norton Logo!

 

Perhaps it would be better to make it a bit more visible.

 

Thanks.
