What is real-time protection?

“Real-time protection” refers to Guardio’s ability to scan your online environment and detect danger the moment it poses a threat to you or your identity. Other cyber security products like antivirus software can only react after you’ve already fallen victim to threats like malware, viruses, phishing, and scams. Guardio, on the other hand, works 24/7 in the background to stop threats as soon as you encounter them. 


This allows Guardio to: 

  • Block malicious websites and online scams the moment you click a bad link
  • Stop dangerous downloads before they end up on your computer
  • Protect your computer from malware, viruses, and apps that steal personal data
  • Flag phishing emails and alert you the moment they land in your inbox
  • Filter out scam text messages as soon as you receive them
