22 Oct Is 360 Security Legit?
360 Security ensures that nothing malicious lurks in the web or download files. It can stop access to sites that are suspicious, scan your browser history, monitor the amount of data you’re using and even locate your phone that’s gone missing.
The suite comes with the firewall and shredder for data as well as tools to clean your system on a regular basis. It can update drivers automatically, has anti-tracking functions and even gives you access to tech support with just one click.
The software’s interface is intuitive and user-friendly even though there are numerous options and settings. Most of the functions are controlled using a large switch, button or checkmark. This is great from a ergonomic point of view. The program is free and is available for both Windows and Mac.
The antivirus does a great job of protecting your PC from malware. Its real-time detection is able to detect more than 95% of malware and hasn’t caused false positives in my testing. It’s not as robust in quality of detection as the other top products when it comes to file scanning and heuristics.
360 Total Security offers a variety of additional security and maintenance functions which include the VPN available only available in the premium version. Its heuristic engine can detect malware by examining a program’s behavior, which can be very useful, especially if the threat isn’t well-known and doesn’t have a signature yet. The program also has an «cleanup» utility as well as other tune-up tools that help improve PC performance.
