Advanced Features? (30-day free trial):
The extra layer of protection actively blocks threats before they take over your device.
This layer blocks a specific type of malware (called ransomware) that locks you out of your device and personal files, then asks you to pay to restore access.
Detects non-malicious but potentially annoying software marked as “Potentially Unwanted Programs” and “Potentially Unwanted Modifications”.
Automatic scan after reboot, update or any other time.
Power saving scan
Run scans only while charging, or skip scans when battery is low or in sleep mode.
Web Protection / Safe Browsing
When using the Chrome browser, this layer scans URLs – protecting you from online scams, phishing sites, and malicious links – and warns you when risky sites are detected, ensuring a safer browsing experience. (For Chromebook users, we recommend adding our free Chrome browser extension.)
Find and remove adware, malware, and potentially unwanted programs such as screen lockers or bloatware. Our award-winning technology is proven to remove traces of malware that other antivirus programs miss.
