Description from AVG Technologies
AVG Secure Search alerts you before you visit dangerous webpages to make sure your identity, personal information, and computer are protected. In addition, our integrated AVG Do Not Track brings the control over your privacy back to you. AVG Secure Search provides clear safety ratings for each link in your search results, allowing you to instantly assess the safety of every site you’re interested in before you go there. Infected sites are marked so that you immediately know which sites to avoid. AVG Secure Search works with Google Chrome®, Firefox® and Internet Explorer®. AVG Secure Search provides unique, preventative, real-time protection while you search and surf. As soon as you start browsing to a web page that is infected and that AVG has rated 'Dangerous', AVG Secure Search warns you and prevents the page from opening. It’s as simple as that. AVG Secure Search always protects you when you enter a web address directly into your browser, when you click links on search engines or social networking sites, and anytime a program or application opens your web browser.
