In order for Kaspersky Small Office Security to fully support browsers, the Kaspersky Protection extension must be installed and enabled in the browsers. The Kaspersky Protection extension injects a script into the web page opened in Protected Browser and into traffic. The application uses this script to interact with the web page and to transmit data to banks whose websites are protected by the Safe Money component. The application protects data transmitted by the script using a digital signature. The application can embed the script without using the Kaspersky Protection extension.

The application signs data transmitted by the script using the installed anti-virus databases and requests to Kaspersky Security Network. The application sends requests to Kaspersky Security Network regardless of whether or not you accepted the terms of the Kaspersky Security Network Statement.

When working with your browser, the Kaspersky Protection extension allows you to:

Manage Private Browsing

Manage Anti-Banner

Inform about suspected phishing

Inform about website problem

Open On-Screen Keyboard
