When encountering an unvalidated form, iTrustPage
asks the user to describe the page they intend to access, by entering keywords into a search
engine. If the form is found in the top search results, the form is validated and the user can proceed.

refine the search terms.
Any anti-phishing tool (including iTrustPage) has false negatives (i.e., a user can still visit a phishing site). iTrustPage tries very hard to minimize such occurrences, but there are no guarantees. After all, iTrustPage only offers pretty good phishing protection.
Warning: iTrustPage records anonymized usage information into a log. These logs are periodically sent to us. We analyze these logs for our research to characterize the benefits of using iTrustPage. Please visit our homepage for more information.
