Support XFINITY Internet About Constant Guard

Introduction

In our ongoing effort to improve your XFINITY Internet experience and satisfaction, we have simplified and streamlined your security offerings. The Constant Guard Protection Suite and Mobile app password management services will no longer be supported and managed by Comcast.

We are pleased to offer you similar great features and functionality through the comprehensive Norton Security Suite, which is available to all XFINITY Internet customers at no additional cost. If you prefer, you can still use your existing Constant Guard Protection Suite services with Fast Connect through White Sky, an experienced technology company, at no additional cost.

Norton Security Suite

Password management is offered through Norton Security Suite at no additional charge with your XFINITY Internet service. Norton Security Suite also features a password manager called Norton Identity Safe, which remembers, secures and automatically enters usernames and passwords.

If you have not installed Norton Security Suite, please download it now on your PC or Mac. Before downloading this program, you may need to uninstall other security software. See Get Ready to Download the Norton Security Suite for more information. For those XFINITY Internet customers who do not want to download the full Norton Security Suite, you can download only its password manager, Norton Identity Safe, at no additional charge at https://identitysafe.norton.com.

What is Fast Connect?

Fast Connect protects your personal information online. For example, it stores your user IDs and passwords, logs you in to your favorite password-protected sites, and securely stores your credit card information. You no longer have to remember your credentials, and keylogging bots can't steal your information. For additional information, please visit http://whitesky.com/.

Constant Guard Service Notices

As part of our efforts to protect your online security from viruses, spam, bot nets and more, we send out Constant Guard Service Notices whenever your security is at risk. When you use our service, you have the responsibility of securing your connection to the Internet, as per the XFINITY Internet Acceptable Use Policy. You cannot opt out of receiving these notices; simply close the service notice without any further action.

Comcast Malware Scan

Malware is software that's installed on your computer without your knowledge or consent. Malware is used to take control of your interactions with the computer. To protect yourself from unwanted malware, simply download and install the XFINITY Toolbar, as an Anti-Malware tool is automatically included. The Anti-Malware tool allows you to schedule scans automatically or run a scan at any time in an effort to help you protect your computer.

Comcast Anti-Malware Application Updates

The new version of the Comcast Anti-Malware application automatically pushes the new malware DAT file update to your computer, which keeps you protected from new versions of malware. The malware DAT files are generally updated each business day (Monday-Friday); however, if your computer is not connected to the Internet, you may miss a DAT file update. If you do miss a DAT file update, the application will provide you with a red warning indicator in the summary tab. The warning indicator will allow you to manually update the DAT file.

System Requirements

  • Windows XP (SP 2 or later), Vista or Windows 7.
  • Internet Explorer version 7 or higher, or Firefox 3.6 or higher.
  • 600 MHz processor (minimum).
