Trusteer Rapport - free protection against online fraud
Your personal information in the hands of a fraudster... not a pleasant thought is it? But protecting yourself against this risk whilst shopping or managing your finances online is easier than you might think.
We've teamed up with online security experts, Trusteer, to bring you their Rapport security software. It works alongside your current anti-virus tools to give you comprehensive online protection - and better still it's free.
How does it work?
Using unique technology, Rapport creates a 'tunnel' for safe communication by:
- Verifying the integrity of your browser and the authenticity of any websites you visit
- Locking down your connection so criminals can't 'listen in' and steal sensitive information
- Stopping malicious software from capturing information e.g. log in details
- Providing alerts about website security and unauthorised access attempts
All of this makes it extremely difficult for criminals to exploit you or your online information.
Why protect yourself?
Most of us enter sensitive information online at some point every day - a username and password could be all a criminal needs to find out a lot more about you than just your name. With ever more devious ways of accessing your information, security software like Rapport really can help in the fight against online fraud.
Other key features
