Currently, almost 40% of all computers worldwide are infected with some form of malware; and a new virus emerges every 4.2 seconds. Don’t ignore the simple fact that no computer should go unprotected.
The idea that there are no hackers looking to breach Apple devices is no longer relevant. Unfortunately many iPhone and iPad users are simply too lax about protecting their devices, making them easy targets for malicious hackers.
iOS devices can be hit with viruses, malware, spyware, phishing scams, and other malicious system breaches that compromise your sensitive data. The quickest solution is installing a free antivirus program until you decide on a more robust solution.
But do free antivirus solutions really exist for iOS devices?
Hackers are getting smarter, and risks to your online security are evolving. Antivirus software might once have been enough. But new and inventive methods of intruding on your safety and privacy are emerging all the time.
New threats require new defenses. That’s where anti-malware software comes in.
Not all antivirus programs work well with laptops, but we’re going to tell you which ones do. Our experts have tried and tested the 47 antivirus products on the market, including AVG, Norton and McAfee, and examined their ability to detect and remove viruses and malware while still having a low impact on laptop performance.
Contrary to popular belief, keeping your laptop safe doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg – an inexpensive yet solid antivirus can keep your laptop just as safe from viruses and hackers as pricier ones.
Many antivirus services claim to offer free online scanning tools, but very few are actually cloud-based services. Most require you to download software in order to work.
While an online virus scanner can not replace your antivirus which runs offline continually in the background, it can be helpful for quickly identifying infections.
If you suspect someone may have gotten hold of your personal information (provided it isn’t your girlfriend or boyfriend after your Facebook password), then chances are you’re a victim of keylogging or rootkit malware.
While perfectly legal when used for good – such as for monitoring your kids’ online activity for their own protection – keylogging can also be used for bad – such as to steal your credit card details or gain access to your Gmail account.
