Qihoo 360 is a Chinese firm that has been in operation since the year 2014. Its 360 Total Security is an antivirus program combined with maintenance-optimization tools, all of which are designed to make your computer run faster and smoother. It also includes a wide range of anti-theft features as well as other useful tools for mobile devices.
The interface is easy to use and clean. The majority of settings are readily accessible and are controlled via large buttons, switches or checkmarks. The program is also light, meaning it won’t significantly impact the performance of your computer during the entire scan.
During testing, we found that 360 Total Security can be very effective in preventing ransomware attacks. The built-in ransomware protection prevents any changes to files and comes with a ransomware decryption tool that allows you to recover encrypted files. This is an excellent feature, especially considering that no antivirus program can protect your PC completely even if you’re a risky user online.
The suite includes a variety of great features, including its sandbox, which allows you to test potentially dangerous programs in a virtual setting to see how they operate without affecting your actual device. Document Protector is another feature which protects documents in real-time and allows you to create regular backups. The program comes with a number of useful anti-theft features, like Intruder Selfie or App-Block. However, it’s important to know that these tools don’t include GPS location or remote access control.
