SafeSurfing allows you to filter content when you are using your preferred browser.

Mobile Security for Android uses a local Virtual Private Network (VPN) on your device with almost no impact to the network speed. It uses a local analyzer to filter all network traffic from your device when using the Trend Micro VPN. You will see a key icon on your device's status bar when SafeSurfing is enabled.

To use other VPN services, you need to disable SafeSurfing.

Manually enable SafeSurfing when local VPN fails to enable automatically.


To use the SafeSurfing feature of your Mobile Security for Android, choose any of the following:
