360 Total Security is mainly intended to protect your system against malware threats. Fortunately, this tool is based on various antivirus engines, including Bitdefender and Avira, which increases the level of protection it provides. It even uses cloud technology to detect ransomware in real time. Not only that, it can also shield your system against any attempts to invade your privacy.
Moreover, this program comes with a full set of other tools aimed at optimizing performance and wiping any leftovers of your activity. Although it has a very straightforward interface, if you still feel it is too much, you can always click on the Full Check button to do everything automatically.
This AV software can run three different kinds of scans. A quick scan analyzes only those system areas that are most likely to be affected by malware infection. A full scan, in turn, checks everything thoroughly but takes considerably more time. Finally, there is also a custom scan to examine a given folder or file only.
Unlike most similar software, 360 Total Security can also detect any issues that may be slowing your computer down. These include unnecessary startup entries and scheduled tasks. Likewise, it offers real-time protection against any attempt to use your camera and record your keystrokes. In addition, this program can find and delete obsolete data, such as cache-generated files, undesired plugins as well as program and system-created leftovers.
There is also a toolbox comprising various features that allow you to set a firewall, monitor network usage, boost performance during gameplay, and clean your registry. There is even a sandbox, which lets you run risky software without affecting your system. Unluckily, some of these features are downloaded on demand, which may feel uncomfortable.
In a nutshell, 360 Total Security provides not only antimalware protection but also includes other useful features. Unfortunately, some benefits can only be gained if you purchase a type of license called 360 Premium Membership.
