Internet Guard blocks websites attempting to gain fraudulent access to your online accounts, cause you financial loss or misuse your data by assuming a false identity.
Internet Guard also blocks websites that spread malware (viruses, Trojans, worms etc.). Viruses make changes to the operating system or other programs. Trojans transmit data, such as keystrokes for example, without the user’s knowledge.
The benefits for you
Swisscom has specially created a website on which you can check whether Internet Guard is active. To run the test, you need to use a network protected by Internet Guard. Make sure that you access the Internet via your Swisscom Internet connection at home or use the Internet at your workplace. Internet Guard will warn you if you perform the test in the Swisscom network, otherwise an info page is displayed.
If you are warned about a website that you believe to be safe, please use the following link to let us know.
Conversely, if you wish to report a website that you believe to be fraudulent (e.g. phishing or scams), a website containing malware (viruses, Trojans etc.) or a website that exploits device vulnerabilities, please e-mail us directly at email@example.com.
In the following cases, Internet Guard may not warn you of a dangerous website.
