You do realize that phishing (mostly) is done through mail ?

You better enable it like here: https://www.uploady.com/download/jAeDJjuD4em/W1UpNzja6EZs~NJ1

These are the settings available in Avast Online Security. SafeZone feature is available in paid versions of Avast Internet Security and Premiere only.
Please ensure that at least Antiphishing, SiteCorrect and Search engine results check boxes are ticked.
