AOL set to simplify online security

Thursday, 6 January 2005, 12:17 AM EST

AOL is to enhance its internet access with a centralised Safety & Security centre that will alert members to threats and make it easier for them to monitor their antivirus and firewall protection.

Set to go live in March, AOL Safety & Security will bring together new and existing tools to both strengthen and streamline the software’s security features. Key changes include the addition of an anti-spyware tool and a security status panel that runs when you sign on to AOL.
