    Based on testing both using PhishTank.

    This is not just due to heuristics but often a website known by Norton to have a phishing webpage or two is rated "Caution" (which Norton ConnectSafe ignores) by Norton Safe Web.

    These are also the cases with Norton Internet Security and Norton 360.

    Two examples not blocked by Norton ConnectSafe:
