In order for Kaspersky Internet Security to fully support browsers, the Kaspersky Protection extension has to be installed and enabled in browsers. Kaspersky Internet Security uses the Kaspersky Protection extension to embed a script into the web page opened in Protected Browser and into traffic. The application uses this script to interact with the web page and to transmit data to banks whose websites are protected by the Safe Money component. The application protects data transmitted by the script using a digital signature. Kaspersky Internet Security can embed the script without using the Kaspersky Protection extension.
Kaspersky Internet Security signs data transmitted by the script using the installed anti-virus databases and requests to Kaspersky Security Network. The application sends requests to Kaspersky Security Network regardless of whether or not you accepted the terms of the Kaspersky Security Network Statement.

The Kaspersky Protection extension is not automatically installed in Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome.
