PayGuard is a function that block attacks that steal the payment information (account information and credit card information) entered when using online banking or online shopping. 
For example, an attacker can use a technique called "Web injection" to display a fake input screen on a browser when accessing a regular site and steal information by letting the user enter payment information. By using the payment protection browser, we protect account information and credit card information from such attacks.

What has been improved?

  • The payment protection browser can now be opened from the "Trend  Micro Toolbar" extension of Chrome / Internet Explorer / Firefox. 
  • We enhanced the tutorial to promote usage. We recommend using a payment protection browser via pop-up when accessing the online banking website.


To use this feature, you need the Chrome / Internet Explorer / Firefox extension "Trend toolbar". After installing Trend Micro Security 2020, open any of the supported browsers. Depending on the browser, a message for adding the "Trend toolbar" will be displayed. Follow the on-screen instructions to add it.
