AOL Shield Pro: Features

Click a heading below to expand and learn more about the features of the AOL Shield Pro browser.

What is the box in the upper right of my browser that has random letters and numbers?

This is the AOL Shield Pro Anti-Keylogging feature at work. This patented technology replaces the actual keys you press with randomly-generated characters to prevent criminals from capturing your keystrokes and your sensitive data.

How do I hide or remove the Anti-Keylogging window?

You can hide the Anti-Keylogging window under Settings.

Note: The following steps will only hide the Anti-Keylogging window. AOL Shield Pro will continue to encrypt your keystrokes.

1. In the upper right, click the menu button (three horizontal lines) and then click Settings.

2. On the Settings page, under Appearance, uncheck the box next to 'Show enhanced security scrambler window.'

3. Restart the AOL Shield Pro browser.

Is there private browsing in the AOL Shield Pro browser?

Yep. In the upper right, click the menu button (three horizontal lines), and then click New Incognito Window.
