Phishing Protection

It would be good if Phishing Protection is added in WebShield instead of Avast Online Shield toolbar. Toolbar is good with Ads blocking, tracking, etc...

Dual Phishing Protection
During the install process, avast! adds a security plug-in to your browsers. Among other things, this plug-in serves to steer you away from fraudulent sites that attempt to steal your security credentials. In addition, the Web Shield blocks access to some fraudulent sites, labeling them with names like "Phishing-Q" and "BankFraud-N".

WebShield settings mention malware urls but it doesn't mention phishing urls so I thought no phishing protection in WebShield.

Good to know WebShield has phishing protection too.
