360 Security will ensure that nothing threatening lurks in your web or download files. It can prevent access to potentially dangerous websites or browser histories, scan your browsing history, monitor the amount of data that you’re using and even locate your phone that’s gone missing.
The suite includes a firewall and a data shredder, as well with tools to keep your system on a scheduled basis. It can automatically update drivers, has anti-tracking features and even grants you privileged technical support access in just one click.
Although there are numerous options and settings, the interface of the program is simple to use and understand. Most of the functions are controlled with the large buttons, switches or checkmark, which is a good thing from a ergonomics point of view. The program is free and available for both Windows and Mac.
The antivirus does a good job of protecting your PC from malware. Its real-time security detects more than 90% of threats and it didn’t generate any false positives in my tests. It’s not as robust in level detection as other leading products when it comes to scans and heuristics.
360 Total Security offers a variety of security and maintenance options as well as a VPN, which is only available in the premium version. Its heuristic algorithm detects malware by looking at the behaviour of a program. This is extremely useful, especially in the event that the threat hasn’t yet been signed. The program includes a “cleanup tool, along with other tune-up utilities that improve PC performance.
