Many of us use the internet day in day out whether for work purposes or for pleasure. When accessing anything using the internet, you are opening yourself up to being hacked and your data being compromised. Over recent years hackers have become even more advanced and therefore anti virus software has had to advance to.
There are a large number of anti virus providers out there, and choosing the correct one can seem a little daunting, unfortunately meaning some people simply don’t bother. When choosing your virus protection you firstly need to think about what you do online. If you do a lot of shopping or banking then you should insure that the anti virus software you chose can protect this and offers an adequate level of cover.
Always go with a company that are well known or have been recommended to you by someone you trust. If you are still unsure then speak to a professional at a computer shop such as PC World who will be able to talk you through the options and advise you what would be most suitable for you.
Some anti virus software packages are free but they often only offer limited security.
