Manufactured by cybersecurity provider Lavasoft (formerly also known as Ad-Aware) Adaware’s mission is to combat the kinds of malicious applications and privacy infringements that a lot of users aren’t even aware. Adaware includes programs that track your browsing patterns, courses that alter the browser’s start page, and apps that display annoying advertisements at the worst times. This free program also offers an array of additional security features that will help you stay safe and ensure your device runs smoothly.
Adaware identified the majority of malware we tossed its way. It had trouble getting rid of some, however. The program comes with several useful extras such as a privacy monitor a registry scanner, file shredder, and advanced monitoring of networks. Adaware doesn’t provide as much protection as the top antivirus software.
Adaware’s previous participation in AV Test tests in the lab resulted in the blocking of just 95. 4% of 0-day risks and 97% known risks. These aren’t terrible scores but they’re far from being far from the top security suites.
Users who want adaware to work better, should consider the alternatives. We suggest Kaspersky and Bitdefender that are known for their reliability and performance in real-world tests. Some users might be disappointed to learn that only customers of the Pro and Total plans have access to online customer and technical support. On its website, the business provides many information as well as frequently asked questions.
