What is SafeCentral?

We at AOL have partnered with leading security software developer Authentium to offer the SafeCentral software with a money back guarantee as part of our commitment to helping members protect their online identity.

SafeCentral provides a layer of protection for your computer that blocks malware and Trojans that could otherwise slip past antivirus and spyware software.

Once you open SafeCentral on your computer, the SafeBrowser automatically starts and provides you with a secure environment for transactions, banking and other online activities that require your personal information. The browser’s patent-pending technology blocks key-loggers, screen-scrapers and other malware agents that could steal your identity from accessing and observing your activity, even on a pre-infested computer.

AOL members can get a free 30-day trial of SafeCentral and then pay a monthly subscription.

Note: SafeCentral is not compatible with ID Vault.
