Protect your personal files and your private life
Malware doesn’t just affect your PC anymore — it’s gotten personal. Through ransomware and webcam spying, hackers can get to your most personal files and photos, or even peep into your home.
Our first line of defense for your PC
Our advanced antivirus scans for, removes and flat-out stops viruses, ransomware, spyware, rootkits, Trojans, and other nasty malware — and because it all happens in real time, we can catch threats before they reach you. We secure your USB and DVD drives just as quickly, too.
Our favorite bit? It updates your security automatically, and uses advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and real-time analysis to help stop even the newest threats from getting near you.
- Advanced Antivirus
- Thoroughly scans every corner of your computer (and any drives connected to it) in real-time for viruses, ransomware, spyware, worms, Trojans, rootkits, and other malware. You can even schedule whole-computer scans for those times you won't even be at your computer.
- AI Detection
- Uses advanced artificial intelligence on your computer to proactively identify malware samples that haven't yet been catalogued by our ThreatLabs team.
- PUA Scanner
- Scans for potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) that you may have unknowingly downloaded (e.g., adware and other malicious applications bundled with downloaded software).
- Cloud-based technology helps stop even the newest malware variants and outbreaks in real-time. Anytime our antivirus encounters an unknown threat, it uploads it to our ThreatLabs team for analysis. They'll then send out a cure to all our millions of users via a security update. The end result? Better protection for everyone.
- Turbo Scan
- Dramatically shortens scanning times by intelligently skipping files it already knows are safe (i.e., files unchanged since they were last scanned).
- Software Analyzer
- Like an alert watchdog, this feature works in real-time to sniff out suspicious behavior of any software running on your computer and warn you if anything is amiss. This helps protect against 0-day threats, malicious programs, and even keyloggers that secretly record typed passwords and bank account details.
- Real-Time Updates
- Ensures that your security is always up-to-date by pushing virus definitions, bug fixes, security updates, and new features to you as they become available.
- Silent Mode
- We don’t mess with movie time. Silent Mode postpones scans, updates, and popups to avoid interrupting you while you're working, playing games, or watching videos.
Web & Email Protection
The safest way to connect
Your email has never been safer. Our Email Shield technology specifically targets email attachments to stop threats, wherever they may come from — malicious senders or friends sending malware out unknowingly.

Hacker Attack Protection
Keep hackers and ransom seekers away
Our Enhanced Firewall gives you full control over exactly who and what comes in and out of your PC. And our Ransomware Protection provides an extra layer of protection against ever-increasing ransomware attacks. That means nobody messes with any of your private data, files, photos, and passwords — no hackers, no ransomware, nothing.

- Effortlessly bounces hackers, criminals, and snoopers who try sneaking onto your PC to steal your private files, photos, & passwords. Works on both wired and wireless networks.

- Walls off your personal photos, documents, and files from malicious encryption. And it takes malware protection one step further, by giving you total control over which apps can change or delete your files.
Don’t let anyone snoop on you
Keep peeping Toms and suspicious applications from accessing your webcam, encrypt and hide your most private photos and files, or permanently shred documents you’re done with.
- Webcam Protection
- Worried that someone might be spying on you through your webcam? Force untrusted apps to get your permission before using it, or even disable it for good.
- Data Safe
- Got something you don't want anyone else to see? Encrypt and hide your most private photos and files to prevent family, friends, or thieves from seeing what's yours.

Shop and bank online freely and securely
Whether browsing, banking, or shopping, this is the added internet protection you need. We block spam and scams, and even help you avoid fake copycat websites, to prevent you from accidentally giving our passwords or credit card numbers to the bad guys.
- We block spam, scams, and malicious phishing emails to keep your inbox cleaner and help stop you from giving your passwords and credit card numbers to the bad guys.
- Secure DNS

We do this by preventing criminals from hijacking your DNS (domain name system) settings by using our own secured DNS servers to faithfully direct you to real websites.
