360 Security will ensure that nothing threatening lurks when you browse the web or download files. It can block access to websites that are suspicious, scan your browser history, keep tabs on the amount of data that you’re using, and even find your phone that’s gone missing.
The suite also comes with firewall, shredder for data and scheduled tools for system cleaning. It is able to update drivers automatically, includes anti-tracking capabilities and gives you privileged access to technical support with just one click.
There are a lot of options and settings, the interface of the software is easy to navigate and comprehend. The majority of things are controlled via big buttons, switches or checkmark, which is great from a ergonomics point of view. The program is free and available for both Windows and Mac.
The antivirus does a great job of protecting your computer from malware. Its real-time security detects more than 99percent of threats, and it didn’t produce false positives during my testing. It’s not as effective in terms of level detection as other leading products when it comes to file scanning and heuristics.
360 Total Security offers a number of additional security and maintenance options as well as a VPN one of which is only available in the premium version. Its heuristic engine detects malware by analyzing a program’s behavior. This can be quite useful particularly if the threat is new and does not have a signature yet. The program also has an «cleanup» utility as well as other tune-up tools to help improve the performance of PCs.
