Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus is the ultimate lightest security software, regardless of whether you are using a Windows or a Mac computer.
Even during scans, Webroot didn’t use a lot of memory, so we were able to run a lot of background applications, including a web browser, and still didn’t notice the slightest impact in the performance of the computer.
Fun fact, Webroot needs about 15MB to install on your computer. No, didn’t miss a zero there. This is the smallest antivirus ever, you can compare it with other products, most of which are well over 50 or even 100MB to download, and much larger after you install them.
Webroot’s lightness is also noticeable in the antivirus’ scanner, which is speedy and completes scans in 1 minute. And the scanner does not miss malware either, thanks to the terrific detection rate which stops all viruses, trojans, rootkits, and even ransomware, so your computer is safe from all threats. You don’t have to run scans either, the program does it automatically for you.
Hackers and online malware are a serious nuisance these days, and target to steal the financial information, email and social network accounts, etc. But Webroot can keep you secure with its Identity Shield, and blocks any phishing website from loading in the web browser.
Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus has a very good firewall which blocks malicious websites, and you can also set it to block network access to specific programs. The network monitor can be useful if you are worried about unknown connections made by your computer, and want to check which applications are causing these.
Now there is a feature which makes Webroot a very special one. Let’s say for example, that you want to know the security status of your computer, but you are actually several miles from home. What would you do? You could connect to the SecureAnywhere website, and login to your online dashboard, from which you can monitor the settings of Webroot’s antivirus. How about that for advanced security?
The simple interface of Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus complements the other features, making it a real no-brainer.
