One of the fastest-growing antivirus software of the year, TotalAV Free is not only there to help secure your computer, whether it is a Mac or a Windows PC, against the ever-evolving but no less threatening wave of digital infections; it also does all the basic protection for free. The antivirus is very simple to use and comes with a host of other optimization and security features that you’d be glad to have as well, though you should know that some extra features will require you to upgrade before you can use them.
For a free antivirus program, TotalAV Free has quite a bit of free features in addition to its job of keeping your computer safe from viruses. The software also includes additional security features like anti-malware, anti-ransomware, anti-spyware and even anti-adware.
In addition to being easy-to-use, small in size, and is very reliable, TotalAV Free comes with browser protection as well and will notify you whenever you are about to visit a reported phishing or spoofed site. However, when it comes to website protection, TotalAV does slow down the website loading process quite significantly according to AV Test. There’s a remote firewall too, allowing you to easily block or allow connection requests to your devices. Plus, the antivirus makes it very easy for you to keep it updated at all times since everything’s automated.
Now, most antivirus brands would charge you extra for all of this, but TotalAV Free provides you with several PC optimizing features all in one convenient interface! You’ll be able to increase your PC boot-up speed by removing startup programs, improve battery life (for laptops) by cutting down on background processes, bolster the launch speeds of various programs, and even has a one-click solution for you to better manage your browser as well as clear up more hard disk space and memory for you by disposing of junk files and duplicates.
But of course, being a free version, TotalAV Free does have some limitations, some of which might not be such a big deal depending on your needs. For starters, the antivirus is only available on Windows PC and Mac, and not on mobile devices. Granted that you can sign up and obtain a limited-time free trial of the mobile version of the antivirus, it’s not exactly something you can use for the long term since the trial will expire.
However, I should point out that the antivirus doesn’t offer real-time protection, so you’ll have to go with manually scanning your computer. Since this is the free version, you can definitely expect pop-up ads on your browser promoting its premium “Essential Antivirus” package when you click on certain buttons or links within the antivirus interface itself.
The antivirus itself, plus a few features, is free to use but you can add additional features like VPN and other security enhancements like ad block pro, password vault, the pro version of its website protection and also, for people in the US, an ID protection feature to safeguard against identity fraud, for a small cost. There’s no mobile version of TotalAV Free but there’s a free trial available with a simple sign up.
In short, TotalAV Free is a pretty decent antivirus program that’s not only free to use; it also has some pretty amazing extra features despite not having a real-time protection feature – you just need to remember to manually scan your computer from time to time. So, if you’re on the market for a free, reliable and easy-to-use antivirus program, TotalAV Free is definitely a product you’d want to take a much closer look.
