Adaware Review – Does Adaware Really Work?

Adaware, a product of cybersecurity firm Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware) It was created to fight the various types of privacy-related threats and rogue applications of which a lot of consumers are not aware. Adaware is a suite of programs that monitor your browsing habits, applications that reroute the browser’s homepage and apps that display irritating ads at the most inappropriate times. This free software comes with several features that will boost your device’s security, and ensure it runs smoothly.

Adaware recognized the majority of malware we threw its way. However, it was unable to assist in getting rid of some malware. The program does include several useful extras like a privacy monitor, an adaware registry scanner, file shredder and advanced network monitoring. It’s important to note, though, that adaware doesn’t offer the same level of protection as the top antivirus tools in the industry.

The last time adaware participated in the AV-Test lab tests, it managed to block only ninety-five. 4percent of the 0-day risks and 97% of known threats. They’re not bad, but they’re not near the top security suites.

Adaware users seeking better performance should consider alternatives. We suggest Kaspersky, Bitdefender and others due to their reliability in real-world tests. Some users might be disappointed that only users of the Pro and Total plans have access to online customer and technical support. The company does provide numerous information and frequently asked questions on its website.
