Adware is a type of malware. It is not as dangerous as viruses that damage systems or spyware that gathers data but it is just as annoying and intrusive. It can also carry out unwanted tasks on your device, such as recording the places you visit and then displaying advertisements that are targeted to those locations. This is a fantastic way for adware creators to earn money without the need to sell their product directly.
In contrast to many other competing products, Adaware Review offers only Windows protection. The free version doesn’t support Mac or iOS devices. It only offers 24/7 technical support for users of the Pro and Total packages. The basic package comes with real-time security and behavior monitoring, along with automatic downloading and a robust fire barrier. However, it does not include web and email protection or additional features like a file shredder.
The program performed well in the AV-test lab tests. It managed to eliminate all known threats it was tested against and block 97% of zero-day attacks. These numbers are impressive, but not as impressive than those of the top security suites.
If you decide to buy the top-tier solution, Adaware Total, it’s worth noting that it’s currently 30 percent more expensive than competitors. This is due to the fact that the firm decided to stop offering multiple levels of protection and instead bundle all their tools into one package. While this means that you’ll only have one license, it will provide access to an array of PC security and privacy tools, including the elimination of tracking cookies optimization tools to speed up Windows boot times, and the ability to block applications from accessing your camera or microphone.
