While you’re surfing the web or downloading files, 360 security will be there to make sure nothing malicious lurks. It can stop access to sites that are suspicious as well as scan your browser history, keep tabs on the amount of data you’re consuming and even locate your phone missing.

The suite also includes an firewall, a shredder of data and scheduled system cleaning tools. It can automatically update drivers as well as have anti-tracking capabilities. It even grants you privileged access to tech support by just a single click.

While there are many options and settings but the interface of the software is simple to navigate and understand. Most of the functions are controlled via a large switch or button, or checkmark. This is great from an ergonomics standpoint. The program is available on both Windows and Mac, and it’s free to use (ad-supported).

The antivirus does a good job of securing your computer from malware. Its real-time security detects more than 99% of threats, and it didn’t cause false positives during my tests. It’s not as robust in level of protection as other products when it comes to the scanning of files and heuristics.

360 Total Security comes with various security and maintenance options. A VPN is included in the premium version. Its heuristic engine can detect malware by looking at the program’s behavior, which can be quite useful particularly if the threat is new and doesn’t have a signature yet. The program also comes with Cleanup utility and other tune-up tools to help improve PC performance.
