Adaware Review – Is Adaware Total Worth Buying?
Adware is a type of malware that’s not as dangerous as system-destroying virus or data-harvesting spyware, however it’s equally irritating and intrusive. Adware is also used to perform unwelcome tasks on your device. For example, it can record the locations you visit to display advertisements that are targeted to these specific locations. Adware creators can earn money by displaying targeted advertising without the need to sell the product directly.
As opposed to other similar products, Adaware review provides only Windows security – the free version doesn’t support Mac or iOS devices. It also provides 24 hour technical support for users of its Pro and Total packages. The basic package comes with live-time monitoring of your behavior and antivirus, along with automatic scanning of downloads and a robust firewall. It doesn’t include protection for websites and emails or any other extras such as a shredder for files.
In AV-test’s lab tests the software performed very well. It was able to remove all known threats and block 97% attacks that are 0-day. These scores are impressive, however not as impressive as best security suites.
If you choose to buy the most expensive option, Adaware Total, it’s worth noting that it’s 30% more expensive than its competitors. This is due to the fact that the company has decided to stop offering different levels of protection, and instead bundle all of their tools into one package. This means you only get one license, but you will be able to access a wide range of privacy and PC maintenance features, including the removal of tracking cookie optimization tools that speed up Windows boot times, and the ability to block apps from accessing your camera or microphone.
