Total Anti Virus Review
Total AV offers real-time protection, which is so helpful because you don’t need to manually scan your PC daily because it scans your PC every moment, and that’s why it is called real-time protection. By default, real-time protection is enabled on Total AV, but you can also disable it if you want to.
Suppose you would ask me the first thing you need to look at when choosing an antivirus for your PC is Ransomware Protection. Fortunately, Total AV offers ransomware protection; if you don’t know what the ransomware is, then in simple words, ransomware attacks your data and locks it. You can not open your data or can’t move it somewhere else. Hackers mainly do this, and then they want money to unlock it.
Yeah, we know that sounds terrifying, and that’s why it is essential to keep your PC safe by installing an antivirus in it. But now the question appears how do they install ransomware into your PC. Hackers use various methods, but mostly they use a link to install it into your PC. Now let me ask you a question: Have you ever received an email from an unknown provider containing a link, and when you open it, your data gets stuck. Yeah, you guessed it right that’s a ransomware link.
Safe browsing AKA VPN
Total AV also offers a VPN that you can use for safe browsing. Not only it offers 65+ different locations, but it also provides incredible speed. We have personally tested it to watch Netflix’s exclusive content, and trust me; you won’t regret its speed. It provides unlimited data, but the downside is it only comes with its premium plan, not with the free version.
Web Shield Extension
As we have already told you above, the Total AV web shield extension provides excellent protection against ransomware and other threats. It is a free Chrome extension that can easily be installed on your PC and start working immediately in the background.
It continuously monitors the website in the background, and if that website tries to access your data from behind it, it emergently blocks that website and informs you. Furthermore, it also prevents you from phishing attacks as well.
The web shield extension also comes up with the Safe Search, which will redirect all the websites to the Total AV search and scan the website in the background to avoid potential threats.
Secure Vault is another Total AV premium feature that comes with their most expensive plan. If you have it, you don’t need to pay for another password manager because it works the same. Like other password managers, it will secure all of your passwords in their encrypted system and generate a strong password for you. You can also choose the word length of your password and also customize it. You need to remember the master password, and it will remember all your other passwords. If you want to choose another password manager, don’t worry; we have a separate article. Just click here to read that one.
