    The Identity Shield is linked to the Web Threat Shield so that it can see what website the user is on to know when to apply protection.

    You should leave both on - WSA may not block a link directly, but the Web Threat Shield takes the information of the active website into account when analyzing files being downloaded from that website. Therefore, even if the full website isn't blocked, you'll still have strong protection against threats originating from them.
