Award winning protection while you surf the internet

SiteHound is a toolbar for Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox which alerts you if you're about to enter a potentially dangerous website.

Today the most common route for attacks on your computer is through your web browser as you surf the web. Everyday, people around the world fall victim to online fraud, scams, security vulnerabilities and malware while surfing the web, and most people realise before its too late.

SiteHound solves this alarming security gap by working with some of the world’s leading security watchdogs to provide you with instant and real-time protection for you as you surf the web.

Powered by a unique database created by a global community of users and experts who actively report potentially malicious websites, SiteHound ensures you surf the web safely by providing you with an unprecedented level of protection from fraud, phishing, spyware, adware, security risks, spam, viruses, online scams, adult and offensive sites and fake anti-spyware products.

I have used SiteHound for over a year now. I find that it works well with Internet Explorer and Firefox. They provide great information on sites that could potentially harm your computer. The updates are very well done and on a daily basis.
I would not surf without it now. Thanks to all who work on SiteHound.

I'm not a lover of toolbars and like to keep my browser as uncluttered as possible, but there is one toolbar/add on that I just wouldn't surf the net without and that is Firetrust's Sitehound.
It is unobtrusive and just sits there doing it's job in either Internet Explorer or Firefox, it updates itself every day too.
In the course of my work on the internet I visit quite a few sites and some of them leave a little to be desired, Sitehound will alert me if I'm trying to access a known bad site, so if I really do have to visit that site I can be sure that I'm going in there with my eyes wide open and my computer locked down!!
I also have the option of submitting bad URL's to Sitehound so that I can do my bit to help keep the internet a little safer.
The best bit is that Sitehound is free to use, the free version is fully functional and I have no hesitation in recommending it to users as part of their security set up. The registered version is worth having though as it will give you more useful information about the sites you are visiting.
I'm also a BIG fan of Mailwasher.... but that is another testemonial!!
