Browsing Protection can prevent you from unintentionally accessing websites that are not trustworthy or have prohibited content.
Sometimes you may browse to a website that contains suspicious, infringing, or prohibited content. For example, the website may be a fake, known spam site, contain potentially unwanted programs, or is illegal no matter where you are located.
You can use Browsing Protection to avoid unintentionally accessing these websites.
