Qihoo 360, full name 360 Security Technology Inc., is a Chinese company that has been in operation since 2014. Its 360 Total Security is an antivirus program combined with maintenance-optimization tools, all of which are designed to make your computer run faster and smoother. It also includes an impressive range of anti-theft features as well as other useful tools for mobile devices.
The interface is simple and clear. The majority of settings are easy to access and controlled with large buttons or switches, or checkmarks. The program is light and won’t affect your system performance when you perform a full scan.
In our tests, 360 Total Security proved to be very effective in preventing ransomware. The software’s built-in ransomware protection protects your files from any changes and comes with a ransomware decryption tool that allows you to retrieve encrypted files. This is a wonderful feature to consider, particularly considering that no antivirus program will protect your PC 100% in the event of a mistake online.
The suite comes with some useful features, like its Sandbox. This allows you to test suspicious software in a virtual setting without having to worry about the impact on your device. Another feature is Document Protector, which safeguards documents in real-time and allows you to create regular backups of your most important files. The program also has some nice anti-theft tools, such as Intruder Selfie and App-Block. These tools do not include GPS tracking or remote access control.
