Internet Guard provides basic Internet protection for all Internet users in Swisscom networks (fixed network, mobile network and the public or private WLAN). This includes visitors who use your home network as guests and Swisscom Hotspots. Internet Guard also protects devices that do not have security software (e.g. anti-virus programs), such as iPad, iPhone, game consoles, TV sets etc. You don’t have to install anything on your devices to use Internet Guard. However, we do recommend that you install a suitable anti-virus program for your device.
Internet Guard warns you before you access dangerous websites. This includes websites that pose a malware risk (containing viruses, Trojans or worms etc. that could infect your device), or phishing websites which attempt to fraudulently access your confidential data.
