What is seal-in-search?


If a Norton Secured Seal customer appears in a consumer's web search results, the Symantec trust mark will appear alongside its listing. Displaying the seal helps differentiate the site's link among the other results while communicating to consumers that the link leads to a site trusted by Symantec.

Who can see seal-in-search?

Consumers must have the appropriate software client (plug-in) installed on their web browser (Internet Explorer version 7 and later or Firefox for Windows version 3 and later). The search results through Google or Microsoft Bing search engine will automatically show the sites that are protected by Symantec with the trust mark. Additionally, when consumers browse Symantec partnered sites, they will be able to view seal-in-search without installing the plug-in. Currently seal-in-search does not work for Mac OS users.

The current user plug-in, Norton Safe Web Lite, can be downloaded here:

How do I get a Norton Secured Seal?

Symantec will first verify the information you provide. Your Web site must be legally registered and you must either own the domain name or have exclusive rights to use it. Next, we conduct your first malware scan. If malware is detected, you will receive a notice with details about the type of malware and the infected pages for removal. When you pass the malware scan, you will receive an email alert with a link to a download page. Norton Secured Seal is a small script that you copy and paste into your Web site.
