Enhanced Pay Guard
PayGuard is a function that block attacks that steal the payment information (account information and credit card information) entered when using online banking or online shopping.

For example, an attacker can use a technique called "Web injection" to display a fake input screen on a browser when accessing a regular site and steal information by letting the user enter payment information. By using the payment protection browser, we protect account information and credit card information from such attacks.

What has been improved?
The Pay Guard now has promotion pop up to promote usage. We recommend using a payment protection browser via pop-up when accessing the online banking website.
An option to always open and not to open the site in Pay Guard has been added.
The Pay Guard now has an option for the user to manually add a website in the website list which allows them to automatically open websites in Pay Guard protected browser.
To add websites, do the following:
Open Trend Micro Security main console.
Click the Privacy Tab.
Click Pay Guard Configure.
Click Add, to add a website or Remove to remove a website.

Enhanced Trend Micro Toolbar
The Trend Micro Toolbar works with your web browser to warn you about any security risks associated with the websites you try to visit.

What has been improved?
The Pay Guard now has promotion pop up to promote usage. We recommend enabling the Trend Micro Toolbar to keep you safe while browsing the Internet.
Added improvements in the installation of Trend Micro Toolbar in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Edge new version to make it easier and simple to install.

I've just compared above download links from Chinese Bulletin Board System vs official TM Download Center download. There's a size differences and some SHA1 and SHA256 differences. Always download from official sources.

Kind regards,

And its filesize and sha's differences vs. original download from TM Download center, why in earth i want to download some "leaked" versions of security softwares?

I'm testing the new version....cannot find any new features.
GUI is known...im not sure if you can make some scan exclusions in the older version.
impact is ok but not light...some delay at opening apps from microsoft office.

It's faster than 2020 version for sure. Even PCMARK 10 test i ran.
But yes, i was somewhat disappointed about the new security "features". According to TM, they improved online banking protection, which was one of the weakest component of 2020 version. Slight delay when opening/installing softwares is no that bad, if it increase security. Why im using TM? Mostly because of its amazing BB/AI. Really great against scripts etc infection vectors. What i do not like, its average static detection, tho its covered by TM Apex BB.
