    That's just their built-in Safe Search which displays only green results when you search.

    Just chatted with a Norton technicial . They confirmed that the issue happens even on their end (they are in Asia) .

    The support agent promised to escalate the issue to someone senior.

    I'm pretty sure this is to block and warn on websites, not work as a full-blown suite at all... :blink:
