  1. For an advanced hacker yeah. But not for the average user. To intercept it they would need your cell #. The code is sent directly to your cell via a text. Anyone advanced enough to bypass that sure as hell would not be snooping around my email. They would be going after the government.
  2. Been using it for years. Same with Facebooks code generator. No one can get into my Gmail unless they have the code texted to my phone.
  3. So basically what you are saying is Eset is not open to new ideas and suggestions. Then the purpose of this thread is?
  4. Thank you Arakasi for a respectable reply. I do not need a list of excuses rugk. If you look back I have already mentioned that 10 other top av companies have this feature. I have certain customers who would like this also. I do not like telling people to use WOT. Please members. Please stop arguing my request until you look into these other programs. Try them out and you will see what I mean. I repair computers. I make house calls for malware removal. When you do something like this then you need to familiarize yourself with every product out there. So you know what to recommend to your customers and what not to. Bitdefender and Kaspersky have a great detection rate. But they will slow any pc to a crawl and add on so many un-needed features. If someone wants something free I tell them to use Avast or Panda. If they want to spend some money I tell them Webroot or Eset. Most ISP's offer free security also. Comcast offers customers Norton Security suite. Which is a rebrannded version of Norton 360. But it comes with so many features most customers do not need or even know how to use.
  5. I love that everyone thinks that adding in a simple browser feature is rocket science. EVERYONE ELSE HAS ONE. Obviously it's not that complicated. This has nothing to do with adding bloat to either one of Eset's products. It is a simple browser add on. Avast has been using it for years. Norton also. As I have previously said before any of you reply I suggest you try out these other products. I have. I actually have installed and ran just about everything out there. I am talking about a site advisor. That is it. Not a virtual keyboard. Not a banking mode. Not a password program. I am talking about something like WOT. That is it. But WOT is a joke based on users who do not like certain websites. If a website has been found to have malicious malware on it then it should be rated poorly. But most of WOT's opinions are not malware based. Toolbar installs are not malicious. All of you keep replying that Eset does not need such a feature. But again I am not talking about something added into Eset. I am talking about a simple browser add on available for those who want to use it in the Chrome or Firefox extension store. ABSOLUTELY FREE. Bitdefender offers traffic light FREE for everyone.
  6. You Eset mods remind of Comodo mods. Brain washed into think Eset is the best thing since Mom's apple pie. And closed minded to new ideas. Again I will stress that if 10 other antivirus companies can make a browser add on successfully so can Eset. @ Hamer. Tracking cookies are harmless. Use CCleaner.
  7. Again you are incorrect. Avira Free, Avast Free, 360 Total Security Free, Bitdefender Free all have these browser add ons. It is NOT a premium feature nor is it something added to the product. The browser add on is common to all the product lines. None of you are understanding this. So let's try this from the top. I AM TALKING ABOUT A BROWSER ADD ON SIMILAR TO WOT. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT A PROGRAM WHICH MUST BE INCORPORATED INTO ESET. It is a separate add on. Something ONLY available via the Chrome store or Firefox add ons. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT ADDING BLOAT TO ESET. Gezzzz, Don't any of you ever check out the competition? Bitdefender has 4 different versions. 5 if you include their free version. All of them contain this browser add on. Avast has 3 different versions. All include this browser add on. Avira has 3 different versions. All include this browser add on. A browser add on has nothing to do with the product. If I wanted to I can add Bitdefender's Traffic Light onto my Chrome. WITHOUT having to purchase Bitdefender. I can just visit the Chrome store. I could also add Avast's and Avira's. This add on has NOTHING to do with complicating the GUI (which according to beta 8 you guys refuse to change). A browser add on IS NOT some feature only seen via the main GUI. Before there are any more replies about my request I highly suggest some of you loo into exactly what I am referring to.
  8. So many are steering away from browser plugins? Lol. The 8 that I listed still use them. As well as F-Secure and 360 Security. These are all the new versions to. I highly suggest you try these products and see for yourself. A browser plugin is not bloat cause it is not a direct feature of the product. Adding a start up manager, disk cleaner, defragger, backerupper, banking mode, sandbox, virtual browser. Those are all examples of unnecessary bloat. Take CIS for example. It contains everything but the kitchen sink. A browser plugin in does not add any more resources to the product. It is a simple add on only used during a browser session.
  9. Lol. So only Eset is getting right. All of these other companies are wrong? If they are wrong then why does Bitdefender and Kaspersky have a higher detection rating then Eset? Stop shooting down the idea of a simple browser plugin. Remove parental controls from smart security since most are built into Windows. Along with K-9 web patrol or Open DNS. Parental controls are no longer needed in a security suite. Suites are actually a thing of the past. All you need is a good av now a days. Norton is actually streamlining all their products into one. A site advisor is still very much a security feature. Especially when it comes to newbies. So basically Eset does not want the extra work load it takes into managing a site advisor. Ok then hire more people. As I have previously said it's not rocket science. Heck teens are designing phone apps right from their laptops. All I keep hearing is why Eset refuses to add such a feature. A more reasonable reply would be to say "We will look into it. Thanks for sharing". Eset is a great antivirus. I only have 3 top choices and I have tried everything out there. Eset, Avast and Webroot are my top choices cause they are bloat free and keep things simple. Plus they are all extremely light on your system.
  10. Oh God not other anti Google thing. Whatever. FYI..................These addons are also available in Firefox. Most addons that are in Firefox and available in Chrome and visa verso. I use everything Google.
  11. In my post I clearly listed all 8 companies. I copied and pasted them from my post #267 1. Avast 2. Norton 3. Avira 4. Bitdefender 5. Kaspersky 6. McAfee 7. Webroot 8. AVG Here is Avast's. It also has a DNT feature. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/avast-online-security/gomekmidlodglbbmalcneegieacbdmki?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon Here is Avira's https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/avira-browser-safety/flliilndjeohchalpbbcdekjklbdgfkk?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon
  12. Read my post please. And I have used all of them including others. https://forum.eset.com/topic/51-future-changes-to-eset-smart-security/?p=17762
  13. Chrome no longer allows 3rd party addons installed remotely. Everything needs to go through the Chrome app store. So again this is NOT something incorporated into Eset. It is an addon in the app store. If users want to use it they can simple visit the app store and download it. WOT is user based opinions. Most from uneducated users. Just read the replies. "I don't like this website. After submitting my email the spammed me.". Well that's why you do not user your real email address for stuff like that.
  14. False alarms on web sites are no big deal. If you know the site is safe you can just click the continue button. Not the end of the world. Again if 8 antivirus companies that I listed then Eset can also do it. It is a simple browser add on you guys can make available in the Chrome App store. IT IS NOT DIRECTLY part of Eset. Gezzz. I give up.
  15. It is not your job. You are a YouTube malware tester like all the others. You test malware in a VM and think you understand everything.
  16. Please understand the difference between toolbars, site advisors and something added into Eset. I am NOT talking about a toolbar. Clearly most of you have never looked at the competition. When the Avast installer is complete your default browser opens up and it will promoted you to install the separate add on. Such as for Chrome. I am not talking about a toolbar. I am merely talking about a site advisor similar to WOT. But instead of being user based opinions its malware based. Again if 8 top leading antivirus companies can do then so can Eset. Google Chrome has banished 99% of any type of toolars. Avira and Avast put a small "a" next toy Chrome's URL bar to give you a site rating. When you perform a Bing, Yahoo or Google search it gives you a rating in your search results. Bitdefender gives you traffic light. Needless junk is something like what 360 Total Security is doing. A start up manager. A temp file cleaner. A Facebook login. A defragger. Those are examples of programs that do not belong incorporated into an antivirus. Norton 360 is another prime example of that.
  17. WOT is a joke by the way. It's based on user opinions and not actual malware related facts. Just read some of the comments. You seem to be avoiding the topic in a round about way. Again if all the previous mentioned companies can do it then so can Eset. Its just another layer. And was we all know a layered approach is the best approach. The average user has no idea what live grid is. Most never even open up the main GUI. FYI..............Thanks for the reply.
  18. Isn't this a suggestion thread? Not something based on your opinion? Every single av company out there does it. Its a FREE browser plugin. Instead of arguing with me you could say 'Hey thanks for the idea and we will look into incorporating into future builds". This is a tool that most experts do not need but it is beneficial to newbies. 1. Avast 2. Norton 3. Avira 4. Bitdefender 5. Kaspersky 6. McAfee 7. Webroot 8. AVG All the above have site advisors. So all of them cannot be wrong. I am not talking about something built within Eset. I am talking about a browser plugin.
  19. ESET uses a strong web protection instead of dedicated plugins. Thanks to this, the scanner works independently and can check even the communication of potentially running malware, block the payload and thus prevent further damage. You clearly are not understanding the difference between web protection and a browser plugin. I am talking about a site advisor. Such as WOT. It rates sites in your Google search and gives you a trust rating. Also shows the site rating in your browser bar. All the antiviruses I mentioned have web protection. So does Avast. But they all also include a site advisor.
  20. I would like to suggest some sort of site advisor. A browser plugin would be great. Not for myself but for newbies. Bitdefefender, Norton, Avast, Avira, Webroot all have them.
