Real-Time Protection

Real-time protection is a security feature that prevents malware from being installed on your device. It means that you are protected at any time without having to perform on-demand scans.

When you click on the wrong link, download the wrong file, or visit a malicious website, you risk infecting your browser and losing your personal information. Our Real-time protection prevents these by checking the scripts on your browser for any malicious activity. 

Our Real-time protection is like adding a virtual bodyguard to your browser. Always working away in the background to protect you, yet it never gets in the way of your browsing experience. 

Turn on Real-time protection

If real-time protection is off, click the toggle to turn it on. If you don't have this option, it's probably because you have partial protection (free membership).
