Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have tried various internet security softwares in the past, but this is the first time I have used one by Webroot. I can say I am impressed. Easy to install and use, this is the complete version, which means you get all the usual features (i.e. protection from online threats and infections) with the added feature of identity protection and online storage of 10GB.
Identity protection means that you can store all of your online passwords for any number of sites (so you don't have to remember every one), get extra i.d. protection when completing online forms, as well as encrypting sensitive information such as Bank Account details, etc.
The online storage feature means you can store certain files such as photos, music, video on an external server, thus ensuring that they cannot get lost should your computer get stolen, for instance. In addition, these files can then be shared with family and friends of your choosing, at home on their own PC's. 10GB of such storage is provided here, in comparison to 2Gb on the version below this one (Security Essential).
There is also a system cleanup feature, which runs a scheduled cleanup of your PC, thus improving it's performance and clearing any unwanted files you may have.
Where Webroot complete scores for me though, is the access to online tutorials which explain what each feature does, with a step-by-step guide to operating it. I have never really understood online security software, but I do now...
The software runs quietly in the background and commences as soon as you boot your computer. Nice modern and easy-to-understand interface too. Recommended..
