How to protect online transactions with Kaspersky Total Security 19

Latest update: 20 October 2022 ID: 14480

When you open the pages of online payment systems, Kaspersky Total Security prompts you to open the website in Protected Browser. In this mode, your browser opens in an isolated environment so that other applications cannot infiltrate it. 

With Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer, Protected Browser opens in a new window. In Microsoft Edge, it opens in the same window. The color of the frame indicates the protection status: 

  • Green. All checks have been completed successfully. You can use the Protected Browser safely.
  • Yellow. Security issues have been detected. The application can detect the following threats and security issues:
    • Untrusted module. Scan and disinfection required.
    • Rootkit. Scan and disinfection is required.
    • Operating system vulnerability. Installation of operating system updates is required.
    • Bank or payment system certificate is invalid. The solution checks if the certificate is present in the compromised certificates database. We do not recommend that you perform financial transactions on such websites.

Until the detected threats are neutralized, the security of your connection to the banking or payment web page is not guaranteed. 

In the Protected Browser mode, Kaspersky Total Security blocks the following: 

  • Spyware from making screenshots. 
  • Access to the clipboard during transactions. The clipboard is only blocked when untrusted applications try to access it. If you copy information from one window to another manually, access to the clipboard is allowed.  

After the Protected Browser mode is disabled, all information is deleted from clipboard.

Kaspersky Total Security does not collect and store your private data.
