Adaware, a product of cybersecurity provider Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware) It is designed to fight the various types of malware and privacy infringements of which a lot of consumers are not aware. Adaware consists of programs that track your browsing habits, applications that reroute the browser start page and apps that display annoying advertising at the worst times. The program is free and comes with numerous extra features to increase security and ensure your device runs smoothly.
Adaware was able to detect the majority of malware we threw its way. It had trouble getting rid of some malware, however. It also comes with useful features, including a privacy monitor and registry scanner. It also includes a file shredder, advanced monitoring of networks, and the privacy watch. Adaware does not offer the same level of protection as most popular antivirus software.
The last time adaware participated in the AV-Test lab tests, it was able to block only ninety five. 4.4% of 0-day threats and 97% of known risks. These aren’t awful scores however they don’t come close to what the most powerful security suites do.
Adaware users looking for better performance should look into alternatives. We recommend Kaspersky and Bitdefender that are known for their reliable performance in real-world tests. Some users might be disappointed that only users of the Pro and Total plans have access to online customer and technical support. On its website, the business provides a variety information and frequently asked questions.
