Protecting a computer from malware is becoming quite a nightmare, what with all the ransomware and almost real-looking phishing mails floating around. We don’t worry much about this because we have Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus on our computer.
The antivirus is light on resources so your computer does not slow down while you work or play games. The scanner analyzes the system so fast, that it is done in a minute, and has one of the highest detection rates among security software. Even ransomware malware is rendered ineffective before they can encrypt your files.
The firewall which is a part of the Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus can block suspicious connections to and from your network on its own. Your financial transactions, social networking sessions are secured by the Webroot Identity Shield. The Webcam shield stops malicious attempts to access your computer’s web camera.
If that is not enough for you, Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus might fit the bill. This version can be used on up to 3 devices, which includes your Windows or Mac computer, or Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.
You can use the Webroot Password Manager to store your online logins, I.e. usernames and passwords, in the vault, which the program encrypts.
The Webroot Android app can detect and block malware, while the iOS and Android versions can block websites which may be malicious. And the apps can send the device’s location to the online dashboard, so you can use your computer to track a lost or stolen device.
Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete offers all the features of the Plus version, and has 2 extras. You get 25GB of cloud storage on Webroot’s secure servers, to upload all of your important data. And you can use the Complete suite, on up to 5 of your devices. The cleaner in Webroot’s suite deletes your browsing data to protect your privacy.
All versions of Webroot’s security products support the SecureAnywhere online dashboard, which allows you to track lost Android and iOS devices, and manage the settings of the desktop programs. The applications are well designed for a user friendly experience.
