Review McAfee LiveSafe 2018

McAfee LiveSafe is a complete solution for internet security. LiveSafe excels in performing the most important security tasks. Unfortunately, not all the extra features work equally well. What makes LiveSafe unique?

In short

  • Protects all Windows, Android, Mac and iOS devices
  • Excellent antivirus, adequate anti-phishing and anti-spam
  • Advanced True Key password manager
  • Mediocre Firewall
  • Parental control is not very extensive
  • Expensive

McAfee total protection discount

Protects multiple devices cross-platform

In the past, McAfee LiveSafe differentiated itself from other McAfee products by securing all your devices with just one subscription. From the latest generation however, Multi-device internet security for various operating systems is no longer unique to LiveSafe. The McAfee packages are therefore difficult to keep apart.

Excellent basic performance, extra features below par

In almost all relevant antivirus tests, McAfee has an excellent score. Especially the basic virus detection tasks are performed well by LiveSafe. Protection against phishing and spam works fine.

There is nothing lacking to the number of extra features. However, we found the quality of the features below par. You should expect more for the price you pay for the bundle. The tests also showed that the McAfee firewall is simply not waterproof. The function of parental control is also quite inextensive. For example, protection for Apple equipment is limited and some iOS features do not work as they should. For Mac-users, there are better alternatives on the market.

True Key identity management

We are, however, pleased with the addition of Intel’s True Key. In essence, the function works the same as every other password manager: all your online passwords are remembered and at the same time kept safe. A nice feature is the True Key profile. This allows you to set up to 5 different forms of authentication, including facial recognition. With LiveSafe you purchase 5 True Key licenses.

In addition, this internet security from McAfee offers you the possibility to store your most sensitive information online and have dual security with both voice and facial recognition. A personalised advanced vault in the cloud may sound quite futuristic, but in practice it works well. In this, McAfee does distinguish itself from its competitors.

Summarised

Pros

  • Multi device protection
  • Excellent performance basic tasks
  • Good password manager
  • Secure Cloud storage

Cons

  • Expensive, more so than its competition
  • McAfee File Lock is missing
  • Some functions are not extensive

Conclusion

McAfee LiveSafe is the manufacturer’s most comprehensive antivirus bundle and delivers excellent performance where core security tasks are involved. The extra additions are useful, but not neatly finished everywhere. Dual security using voice and face recognition makes it a unique internet security purchase. See also the McAfee Total Protection 2018 Review. McAfee Total Protection is recommended as one of the best antivirus for consumers.

Panda Dome Essential 2018

Panda Dome Essential 2018 scans your computer with the aid of information available on the Web. The software defines it as ‘scanning with collective information’, that is with the aid of the collectively connected users. When Panda Dome detects a weak spot in a system, it informs all users about it. In this way, the application combats spy- and adware effectively. Panda Dome also searches for ‘rootkits’, which are packages that hackers leave behind to gain access to system files.

Summary

Pros

  • Clear interface, easy to use
  • Needs little memory space
  • Support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
  • Compatible with Windows 10

Cons

  • Uselessly long installation procedure
  • Scans take a lot of time
  • No Parental Control available
  • Back-up functions are missing

Panda Dome Essential 2018 is characterised by clear menus and functionality. The software forms a good barrier against identity-theft, hackers, viruses, and spyware, without laying a huge claim on your system sources. The program keeps running discreetly in the background (no flashing panicky messages), which we rather like. Panda Dome is a modest scanner with an excellent capacity to resolve.

Panda Dome Essential contains a firewall with which to protect your Wi-Fi-network against invaders and undesired connections. You can chat, share pictures and videos, do your Internet banking, go shopping online, and surf carefree.

Conclusion

Panda Dome Essential is very interesting price-wise. The product scores satisfactorily on average. It is not one of the best antivirus software products at the moment.

Review McAfee Total Protection 2018

For those who are looking for a comprehensive security suite for the whole family, McAfee offers the Total Protection package. As most modern families have multiple devices with different operating systems, it is possible to use McAfee Total Protection for Windows as well as Android or MacOS. This makes it possible to install the antivirus software on your computer, smartphone and tablet. What does McAfee Total Protection protect against and what are the extensive features offered by this package?

In short

  • Extensive antivirus options
  • 5 licenses password manager
  • Destroying files
  • Encrypting files
  • For Windows, MacOS and Android

Pros

  • Password manager with facial recognition
  • File encryption

Cons

  • No Secure Cloud Storage (McAfee LiveSafe)
  • No Vulnerability Scanner

McAfee total protection discount

Reliable virus scanner

Like McAfee’s other antivirus software, Total Protection offers a reliable antivirus that detects and removes malware such as viruses, spyware and ransomware. The real-time protection also ensures that malware and other dangers are immediately blocked and therefore have no chance to nest.

The WebAdvisor warns you about dangerous websites while surfing, so you never fall victim to phishing. Furthermore, downloads are immediately scanned, and it checks whether your firewall and antivirus are activated. When files you are downloading show suspicious behaviour or contain known malware, you will receive an immediate warning.

Destroying Files

Dragging and deleting a file to the recycle bin is not enough to permanently destroy it. It is relatively easy for cyber ​​criminals to retrieve files that you think you deleted. That is why McAfee Total Protection offers the so-called McAfee Shredder. This allows you to destroy files permanently, so sensitive data can never fall into the hands of anyone for whom they are not intended. Perfect for deleting files with private data such as a copy of your ID, financial documents and other personal files.

Password manager

Incidentally, McAfee’s lower-priced Internet Security also offers a solid antivirus and the possibility to destroy files. Why is it still worth choosing Total Protection? McAfee offers an advanced password manager. This allows you to save all your passwords. These are automatically filled in for you as soon as you have identified yourself by means of, for example, your face or your fingerprint. McAfee Internet Security only offers one license for this McAfee True Key, which only one person can use. With McAfee Total Protection and McAfee LiveSafe, you will immediately receive five licenses for the use of the password manager. Very useful if you need the antivirus software for your whole family.

File encryption

In addition, McAfee Total Protection has the ability to encrypt files. You can store sensitive files and provide them with encryption (McAfee File Lock). As soon as someone wants to open the files, the password must be entered first. This will prevent malicious people from being able to steal or hijack your files.

Conclusion

McAfee Total Protection 2018 is especially effective when used with several people. You can protect all your devices, either PC or Mac, smartphone or tablet. The package offers the options you can expect from a Total Protection package. Especially its password manager and File Lock are useful additions. It is therefore recommended as one of the best antivirus for consumers.

AVG Antivirus 2018

AVG Technologies, one of the world’s best-known online-security companies, specialised in antivirus solutions for home-users and big businesses. Worldwide over 180 million people make use of the various software packages that AVG supplies.

This software giant introduces two security packages, the basic package “AVG Antivirus”, and the more business-oriented “AVG Internet Security”. Both packages offer the basic features in their range, but they most certainly do not shine. Both packages score below average when it comes to virus protection.

The software is well structured and does not require excessive resources from your computer. Total scans provoke little reduction in PC-performance. It should not cause problems to continue to use your PC while running a scan.

Summary

Pros

  • Clear interface, pretty easy to use
  • Little performance loss for your PC
  • Compatible with Windows 10

Cons

  • Virus protection is mediocre
  • Back-up functions are missing

Antivirus-protection

Antivirus-protection that is updated automatically to protect you consistently against new threats. As hackers develop new techniques, the AVG research labs continuously process web data in order to devise new defences to protect you automatically.

Gaming and surfing without interruptions

Go surfing and gaming without being disturbed. Scans are executed when you’re not at your PC. Our software also knows when you’re playing a game and makes sure the security will only be running in the background, so you can play without being bothered.

Surfing and searching safely on the Internet

You like to surf and search, but you absolutely want to avoid ending up on infected websites. AVG helps you by clearly warning you about threats and by steering you away from them.

Conclusion:

The software is pretty average. We’d like to see considerable improvements in protection! The antivirus has a lot of work to do to re-emerge at the top of the pack.

Avira Antivirus Pro 2018

The starter package Avira Antivirus Pro has interesting bonus features, such as parental supervision and a personal firewall. The software is easy to use, but also very simple. Does Avira Antivirus Pro offer good value for money? You can find out it in the following review.

In short

  • Bonus: parental supervision aimed at social networks
  • Bonus: personal firewall
  • Fast QuickScan, slow full scan
  • Mild system load
  • Free technical support, either by phone or e-mail

Bonus: personal firewall that works like a guard dog

A firewall usually only comes with expensive and more elaborate Internet security suites. Thus, we think the addition of this feature is surprising and very welcome. Like a guard dog, the Antivirus Pro firewall monitors all the incoming and outgoing data traffic and intervenes if necessary. You can set rules for the Internet access for each application. In addition, you can use it to control the behaviour of the device on less-secure public networks.

Social network security plug-in for the concerned parent

As a parent, it can be difficult to monitor your child’s online behaviour. To make this a bit easier, Avira has developed the ‘social network security’ plug-in. You can connect your child’s account to your own and receive reports about undesirable contacts on social networks such as Facebook. Antivirus Pro will also keep you up to date on the use of words connected to sex, drugs, violence or alcohol in chat conversations.

Browser protection, system- and e-mail scans

Avira scans your browser in real-time and keeps it clear and organised. No green ticks on your browser to inform you which websites can be trusted. Avira only draws your attention to any potential threat if you are about to access a dubious website. This will keep your browser clear and organised.

The Internet security package does not come equipped with the quickest and most complete system scan. In our test, the scan took more than 1 hour, which is longer than the majority of the other manufacturers take. Nevertheless, Avira detected malware that other scans missed.

In contrast, the Quickscan was very fast, although it should be mentioned that it was a bit odd that this frequently used function cannot be activated directly from the home screen. The function is stored away in a few mouse clicks, under the system scanner tab.

Avira Antivirus Pro used quite a large amount of memory space during normal use. Quite a lot more than similar antivirus programs. However, while running several programs at once (multitasking) we never experienced any serious performance issues. This might be the case with some of the outdated PC systems.

In conclusion

Advantages

  • Handy bonus features such as a personal firewall and parental supervision
  • Fast QuickScan
  • Free technological support

Disadvantages

  • Uses a lot of memory
  • Slow full system scan

The affordable Avira Antivirus Pro is not the quietest antivirus software, but overall it works quite well. With its own firewall and parental supervision for social networks you get extra value for money. The antivirus software is one of the best antivirus packages of 2017.

BullGuard Internet Security 2018

 

BullGuard Internet Security 2018 gets 10/10 points from us. That takes the product to the first place for the Internet Security test of 2017 and it earns the TopReviews Gold award.

Advantages:

  • User friendly, clear and fast
  • Good antivirus solution
  • Simple to install and use

BullGuard Internet Security 2018

The installation procedure of BullGuard Internet Security runs quite smoothly. Once the software is installed you are asked immediately to create an account.

Once BullGuard Internet Security has been installed it immediately retrieves the newest virus definitions. Then it automatically runs a system analysis. This might take a while, the system analysis is meant to optimise the system, it removes unnecessary files and clears up memory.

The main menu corresponds with that of the previous year. The menu is organised clear and orderly, it comes with different modules. This makes it possible to start different components directly and it is not needed to open different dialogue screens before you can run a virus scan, for example. This makes the menu very user friendly, clear and fast.

The complete virus scan is very well put together. BullGuard internet security scores high in searching for viruses, spyware and other malware on the system. In addition, the software looks at the behaviour of applications on the computer. This way it detects the new threats which are not yet known in the list with virus definitions.

Extra functions

In comparison to the security package of last year it comes with extra interesting gadgetry to protect your computer. The program warns when applications try to foul up your browser with an undesired toolbar, different start page or search engine.

In addition, the antivirus package monitors the system resources well. This prevents that the computer might be overtaxed during a virus scan.

The vulnerability scanner monitors your PC accurately. BullGuard checks with this scanner whether your computer contains vulnerable software which is sensitive to threats.

Also the spam filter, link scanner and the parental supervision function have been added by the antivirus supplier to this versatile security software package.

Conclusion

You are well off with this internet security package! Your computer is protected, from general threats on the internet like viruses, spyware and other malware. In addition, it includes much gadgetry to make/keep the use of your computer as pleasant as possible. It is a very sound and stable virus scanner. It does what it needs to do and even more.

Kaspersky Antivirus 2018 review: little powerhouse

Kaspersky Antivirus 2018 is almost as strong as its larger brothers. The virus scanner performs exceptionally well, but there are cheaper alternatives. You read here why Antivirus 2018 is an excellent purchase.

In short:

  • Excellent performances for basic package
  • Clear, simple to operate
  • Fast, reliable and stable
  • Costly, a little more expensive than the competition

Other appearance

The control panel has been adjusted slightly compared to the previous version, but works considerably more enjoyable. The same colour scheme, but in a different layout. The buttons are a little smaller, without edge and aligned horizontally. The security status of your PC can be seen in a mere glance. In case of calamities the banner becomes interactive and changes colour. With a single click you are taken to the element which needs your attention. You are in control and are only disturbed when it is necessary. That feels pleasant.

Exceptional performances

Kaspersky Antivirus 2018 scores exceptionally well in various independent tests. The bundle recognises and blocks various types of malware effortlessly. Phishing attempts are noticed and intercepted quickly. The virus scanner prevents you from accidentally taking in harmful software. Or ending up at fraudulent websites which are targeting your passwords. Small negative: a complete system scan takes longer than other packages do.

Extra tools

Kaspersky has added a number of pleasant functions:

  • If a website requests your personal data, you can type this with the assistance of the On-Screen Keyboard. This way you prevent sensitive information from being read by a so-called keylogger.
  • If you are logging in to My Kaspersky then you control the most important parts of the security package remotely, such as the fast or complete scan, or the updating of the virus definitions.
  • If your system has been contaminated, then the Kaspersky boot drive starts your system in separate operating system. This way you prevent that malware damages your PC irreparably. You do need to create the boot drive before you get in trouble.

For the own firewall, the functions Parental Supervision and Secured Payment you will have to upgrade to a more expensive virus scanner.

Summary

Pluses

  • Excellent antivirus and internet security performances
  • Useful extra tools
  • Easy to install

Negatives

  • Costly
  • Complete system scan slow

We think Kaspersky Antivirus 2018 is highly recommended. The virus scanner works well, performs excellently and is easy to install. Considering the price, the extras are a little scant.

Bitdefender Family Pack 2018 Review: unlimited Internet security for home users

With Bitdefender Family Pack 2018 you can protect all of your devices with one single purchase, from PC to Mac, to Android phone and tablet, to iPhone or iPad. This powerful mega suite integrates an incredible number of anti-virus functionalities without intimidating you. Even if we feel that some features could have been better elaborated just a bit. This is our opinion on Bitdefender’s Family Pack 2018:

Summary

Pros

  • All-in-1 solution Internet security
  • Easy to operate
  • Remote control
  • Unlimited number of protected devices: Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS
  • Excellent scores on independent anti-malware-, anti-spam-, and anti-phishing tests.
  • Low system impact
  • Personal firewall without too much hassle
  • Protection against theft or loss

Cons

  • Rather limited Parental Control
  • Auto-addition passwords mediocre
  • Back-up functions are missing

Complete antivirus for all personal devices

Bitdefender Family Pack 2018 actually combines three packages in one. With Bitdefender Total Security you can secure all your PCs. You can install Mobile Security and Antivirus on mobile Android devices. Antivirus for Mac protects all your Apple Macs, iPads and iPhones. From the central panel you can operate all the devices and features, such as:

  • Parental Control. Read more below;
  • System optimisation. More below;
  • You can secure sensitive files and encrypt them with a password;
  • Anti-theft. You can detect missing devices, or erase all data at a distance;
  • Password manager; automatically remembers often-used on-line passwords;
  • Secure Internet banking and online shopping; you can do your financial transactions in a protected environment.

Excellent performance

The anti-virus package is impressive for having the most powerful anti-spam filter currently available. It effortlessly searches downloads for possible threats, without hampering your e-mail use. The personal firewall blocks attacks from the outside. In addition, the firewall decides autonomously which programs can have access to your network, without irritating pop-ups.

System optimisation slightly different

The OneClick Optimizer scans your system for components that slow it down unnecessarily, such as unused files, register bugs, and overflowing browser caches. When the fast scan is finished, you click on Optimize, and the system is cleaned up.

The Startup Optimizer carefully monitors the start-up time of your computer. You can see at a glance which programs use up the most time during start-up, and how other Bitdefender-users deal with this.

Monitoring Internet-use by your children

The function Parental Control filters undesired websites and monitors the Facebook accounts of your children. You can block undesired phone calls on any Android device. Unfortunately, it is no longer possible to set a time-limit.

Conclusion

It is actually hard to criticise Bitdefender Family Pack 2018. In a few words, the Internet security has been extended considerably, it’s powerful, and it comes with an unlimited number of licences. That is particularly convenient when securing more than three devices.

Bitdefender Total Security 2018

Bitdefender Total Security 2018 Multi Device offers complete security for all your devices. The software works excellent and silently, but takes up a lot of disk space. We go over the most important features and explain why Bitdefender Total Security 2018 might be the most total and effective suite of the moment.

Bitdefender Total Security Multi Device 2018

In short

  • Fast, quiet and very complete
  • Great value for money
  • Takes up a lot of storage space
  • Useful extra features for mobile security

PC, Mac, and also mobile security

The newest generation of internet users are no longer limited to just desktop PCs, also smartphones and tablets are continuously connected to each other. This brings countless new possibilities with it, unfortunately also for (cyber) criminals.

To meet this new security issue, Bitdefender comes with Total Security 2018 Multi-Device. In one purchase you secure your PC, Mac and Android devices. With numerous useful extras. In case of theft the antivirus software blocks your tablet or Android mobile remotely and activates the GPS. You will see right away where the device is located at that moment. Bitdefender even goes a step further here and makes photos of the possible culprit. Whether this really gets you your device back, remains to be seen. The sense of security is certainly increased dramatically.

Parental supervision can be set for PC, tablet and smartphone. You can also manage these remotely from your mobile. Small point of criticism: the function only works on Windows and Android devices.

Antivirus performs excellently

Securing multiple devices is of course nice, but antivirus software should mainly do its job well. In that area Bitdefender impresses once more.

Bitdefender scores perfectly in tracing often occurring and also new and advanced malware. The virus scanner uses an own firewall filter to guard the incoming and outgoing internet traffic. The spam filter also works well and does not go at the expense of download times.

The many extra features are easy to control with a press of the button through the Oneclick™ interface.

Silent, effective and easy to operate

An often occurring point of criticism of powerful antivirus is the emphatic presence. If you are in the middle of a movie you do not want to be interrupted with messages about possible risks. It is also disruptive if your game freezes because a planned, but undesirable scan takes place. Bitdefender found a solution to that.

The virus scanner works with security profiles which recognises various types of use and adjusts accordingly. The security occurs on the background this way. You will not be disrupted during your activities.

Summary

  • Excellent performances
  • Simple to operate
  • Works silently and purposefully
  • Useful extra features

Negatives

  • Parental supervision can only be set up in Windows and Android
  • Takes up more storage space on average

Bitdefender Total Security 2018 Multi-Device contains everything you can expect from a good and complete security package and much more. The software works effectively and silent and offers great value for your money. With this score Bitdefender comes on the 1st place in the test.
