Adaware, which is a product of cybersecurity provider Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware), is designed to protect users from malicious apps and privacy invasions of which many consumers are not aware. Adaware is a collection of programs that track your browsing patterns, courses that alter the browser’s homepage and applications that show annoying advertisements at the most inconvenient times. This free application comes with a number of features that can increase your device’s security and ensure that it runs smoothly.
Adaware identified the majority of malware we threw its way. However, it had difficulty eliminating certain malware. It also comes with useful extras, like privacy monitors and a registry scanner. It also includes an advanced file shredder, network monitoring, and an privacy watch. Adaware doesn’t offer as much protection as the most popular antivirus software.
Adaware’s participation in the AV Test tests in the lab resulted in a blockage of just 95. 4% of 0-day risks and 97% of known threats. They’re not bad but they’re far from being close to the best security suites.
Adaware users seeking better performance should look into alternatives. We suggest Kaspersky, Bitdefender and others due to their reliability and effectiveness in real-world testing. Also, only Pro and Total plan users have access to online technical and customer support, which can be a bit disappointing for some users. On its website, the company has various information and frequently asked questions.
