What is Antivirus?
Antivirus is a program that we use on our phones or computers to scan, detect, and delete any malicious viruses from our devices. You may have heard of some well-known virus protection including McAfee, Kaspersky & Norton Security. In the current era of technology, protecting your home systems is an absolute must. Not only from financial attack attempts, but from web-cam peeves and keeping your irreplaceable data as safe as possible. Identity theft has risen by 25% since 2021.
Protect your devices, data, and personal information safe with virus protection. At NeedTech we can determine the best software for your device based on your usage, job & device. Have NeedTech recommend, install, and set up the best Antivirus for you.
Is Antivirus Necessary?
To put it simply, yes! Despite Mac & Windows coming with some built in virus protection, you will need to still protect your device & information from attacks with an Antivirus. At least 350k new malicious programs are detected each day. Without any form of you defence, you are bound to run into a virus or malware at some point. We recommend installing an antivirus program and running a full scan weekly to prevent any viruses.
Many people believe that they do not need an Antivirus on their phone, but in truth, you definitely do. We use our phones everyday and visit hundreds of thousands of websites a week. Having no form of virus protection on your phone can lead to having private information stolen. Learn more about about some common security misconceptions.
