Official statement on supported browsers for web access protection


Recommended Posts

The title said it all.

ESET is lacking a statement on which browsers are supported by web access control feature. 
Other security companies state this information in their system requirements page. 
After extensive search I can conclude ESET does not have an official statement on supported browsers regarding THIS FEATURE. Is it right?

Web access protection scans http traffic regardless of the browser. As for scanning https, any browser that honors the CA certificates in the trusted root CA cert.store are supported. Moreover, the root CA is also imported to the Mozilla's trusted root CA cert.store too.

Thank you for addressing this topic. Unfortunately it does not answer my question. I need an official statement (link to a site or documentation stating the supported browsers).

 If I use chrome browser and get infected associated with financial losses I can get refund from my insurance company (proper use of the software proven) since such kind of issues are covered by my insurance. By the way I prefer to use Brave Browser and Yandex browser.. as a customer I expect not to be forced to do extensive research to find official ESET statements and to be compelled to consult the insurance company at the same time.

As far as Eset Banking and Payment Protection goes, supported browsers are listed here: https://support.eset.com/en/how-to-use-eset-banking-and-payment-protection

As far as Web Access protection in non-B&PP protection, I could find nothing listed by Eset showing specific browser exclusion or inclusion. As @Marcos posted as long as Eset SSL/TLS protocol scanning is working for a given browser, all HTTPS traffic is being scanned. Eset will scan all HTTP traffic regardless of browser used.

A number of security products do not perform SSL/TLS protocol scanning. Of note is that Windows Defender does not. As such, I cannot see how an insurer could hold a person negligent if they were using a browser which didn't not perform SSL/TLS protocol scanning regardless of security product used.
