Sorry guys, I'm not very computer literate. But this keeps popping up in my husband's detailed reports as a supported item. I'm not sure if I should be suspicious or if its nothing. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you

Samantha,

This means that one or more of your husband's browsers uses Google Safe Browsing. This service allows browsers to check URLs against Google's constantly updated lists of suspected phishing and malware pages. For listed sites, browsers warn users away from potentially malware-laden or phishing websites. In Google Chrome, this corresponds to the Enable phishing and malware protection advanced setting. Safari and Firefox can also use the service (look about halfway down the linked page).

Hope that helps!
