360 Security ensures that nothing malicious lurks on the web or download files. It can prevent access to potentially dangerous websites and scan your browser history, keep tabs on how much data you’re using and even track down your phone that’s gone missing.
The suite also comes with an firewall, a shredder of data and scheduled system cleaning tools. It will automatically update drivers with anti-tracking tools and even gives you access to privileged tech support with just one click.
Although there are numerous settings and options but the interface of the program is simple to navigate and comprehend. The majority of things are controlled via large buttons, switches or checkmark, which is a good thing from a ergonomics point of view. The program is available on both Windows and Mac, and it’s free to use (ad-supported).
The antivirus does an excellent job of protecting your computer from malware. Its real-time detection detects more than 90% of threats and didn’t cause any false positives in my tests. It’s not as effective in terms of degree of detection as other top products when it comes to the scanning of files and heuristics.
360 Total Security offers a number of additional security and maintenance options which include a VPN one of which is only available in the premium version. Its heuristic algorithm can detect malware by looking at the behaviour of a program. This is extremely useful, especially in cases where the threat has not yet been signed. It also includes an «cleanup» utility as well as other tools to tune-up that can help improve PC performance.
