When you’re browsing the web or downloading files, 360 security will be there to make sure nothing malicious is lurking. It will block access to suspicious websites, look through the history of your browser, keep track of the amount of data you’re using, and even locate your phone that has gone missing.
The suite also comes with an firewall, a data shredder and scheduled system cleaning tools. It can update drivers automatically, includes anti-tracking functions and even grants you access to tech support with just one click.
While there are many options and settings but the interface of the software is simple to navigate and comprehend. The majority of the settings are controlled by the large buttons, switches or checkmark. This is great from a user’s perspective. The software is free and accessible for both Windows and Mac.
The antivirus does a decent job at protecting your computer from malware. Its real-time protection is able to detect more than 99percent of threats, and it didn’t trigger any false positives in my testing. It’s not as robust in quality of detection as the other top products when it comes to file scanning and heuristics.
360 Total Security comes with several security and maintenance features. A VPN is included in the premium version. Its heuristic algorithm can detect malware by looking at the behaviour of a program, which is extremely useful, especially when the threat hasn’t yet been formally identified. It comes with a “clean up utility as well as other tune-up tools that can enhance PC performance.
