Adaware Review – Is Adaware Total Worth Buying?

Adware is a type of malware that’s not as threatening as system-destroying viruses or data-harvesting spyware, however it’s just as irritating and intrusive. It can also carry out unwanted tasks on your device, including recording your visits to certain locations and then displaying ads that are specific to specific locations. Adware creators can earn money by displaying ads that are targeted without the need to sell the product directly.

Adaware review, in contrast to other competitors offers only Windows security. The free version does not support Mac or iOS devices. It provides 24 hour technical support to users of the Total and Pro packages. The basic package comes with real-time security and behavior monitoring, along with automatic downloading as well as a strong fire wall. It doesn’t include protection for web and email as well as any other features such as a file shredder.

In AV-test’s lab tests the software performed very well. It was able to eliminate all known threats and block 97% attacks with a 0-day duration. These scores are impressive, however they’re not as high as the scores of the most popular security suites.

Adaware Total is currently 30% more expensive than the rival. This is because the company has taken the decision to stop offering multiple tiers of protection and instead, bundle their tools into a single package. This means you only get one license but you can avail a wide array of PC protection and privacy options, including the removal of tracking cookies and optimization tools to speed up Windows boot times, and the ability to prevent applications from accessing the camera or microphone.
