Guardio is classified as a provider of browser protection and data breach monitoring. This sets us apart from other antivirus solutions in a few different ways.
- By operating as a browser extension, it allows Guardio to block threats BEFORE they reach your computer, instead of allowing threats to enter your computer and then attempting to remove them after you've already been affected and (sometimes irreparable) damage begins to set in.
- There's no need to manually update Guardio's virus database and risk missed infections when you don't apply updates for other programs immediately since Guardio's updates are automatically applied in real-time.
- As a browser extension instead of a separate program, Guardio doesn't use excessive resources that cause your computer to run slower.
Guardio's live browser protection stops malicious annoying popups, neutralizes browser hijackers and malicious browser extensions, and blocks malicious websites, phishing scams, and other scams encountered online. In addition to all of that, our data breach monitoring service scours the deep web for signs that your accounts were involved in a data breach so you can avoid identity theft.
