[macOS] Is the website filtering only works in http? (no https?)


today I purchased Trend Micro Antivirus for macOS.

Just for the sake of curiosity I tried the website filter feature and after setting it to the max possible streght, I realized that it only prevent access to http sites. I can bypass the filter by just using https.

Is this intended? 

Again, I'm just asking this for the sake of my curiosity. I don't plan to use such feature anyway.

Thanks a lot,

Hi @damicoluca91! 

I'm glad you share this in our community. 

The Trend Micro Antivirus for Mac can detect HTTP, HTTPS, and HTTP2. The Web Threat Protection and Trend Micro Toolbar should be turned on. Here's how to add Trend Micro Toolbar in your browsers.
