When you’re browsing the internet or downloading files 360 security is there to ensure that nothing nefarious lurks. It can block access to unsafe websites, examine the history of your browser, track how much data you use and even track down your phone that has gone missing.
The suite includes an firewall and a shredder for data, as well as tools for cleaning your system on a regular basis. It can automatically update drivers as well as have anti-tracking capabilities. It even gives you access to privileged tech support access by just a single click.
The interface of the software is simple and user-friendly even though there are many options and settings. The majority of things are controlled using a large switch or button, or checkmark. This is great from a ergonomic perspective. The program is accessible on both Windows and Mac, and it’s free to use (ad-supported).
The antivirus itself does a decent job at keeping your computer safe from malware. Its real-time protection detects more than 99% of threats, and it didn’t generate false positives during my tests. However, it doesn’t have the same level of detection that the leading products do in terms of heuristics and scanning files.
360 Total Security offers a variety of additional security and maintenance options that include a VPN one of which is only available in the premium version. Its heuristic algorithm is able to detect malware by looking at the behaviour of a program. This is very useful, particularly in cases where the threat has not yet been signed. The program comes with a “clean-up tool, along with other tune-up utilities that boost PC performance.
