As you may have guessed I am somewhat savvy when it comes to all things online…however this isn’t exactly the entire truth. I am horribly incompetent when it comes to online security. There’s it’s out there and I can’t take it back. It seems that the online threats change far too rapidly for me to keep up with, combine this with my 7 & 9 year old daughters’ natural gift with computers and I’ve been feeling overwhelmed.
Up until now I’ve been using different software for different protection but recently I was asked to work with EST Smart Security 6 and it does it all!
What is ESET Smart Security 6
ESET Smart Security 6 is an all-in-one Internet Security solution with new Anti-theft feature that locates your missing laptop and gives you tools to help recover it. Personal Firewall and Anti-Phishing keep your data safe from identity theft and other scams.
ESET Smart Security 6 includes fantastic anti-virus which allows me to relax while I’m online. It eliminate all types of threats, including viruses, rootkits, worms, and spyware. Cloud-powered scanning delivers a higher level of protection, speeding up scans and ensuring that your computer runs at its best. All removable media such as USB sticks, CDs and DVDs are scanned upon insertion for offline malware.
ESET protects my computer from theft. The comprehensive Anti-theft features help you locate your misplaced laptop, block access to your files and identify the thief by turning on the built-in camera. All easily accessed and managed through the ESET Anti-theft web portal at my.eset.com
My online identity is safeguarded. Powerful firewall, removable media and Anti-Phishing security features protect you against criminals trying to steal your personal information through online scams, hacking or by physically plugging a USB thumb drive into your computer and taking files.
It doesn’t affect my computer’s performance. Leaving more power to programs you use daily, these solutions let you play, work and browse the Internet without slowdowns. Stay unplugged and online longer with battery-saving mode and enjoy gaming without distracting pop-ups.
Includes parental controls and training. Parental Control blocks access to inappropriate websites so your child is protected from offensive material while the complimentary ESET Cybersecurity Training teaches you and your entire family how to avoid cyber threats, scams and hackers.
Installing & Using ESET Smart Security 6
The installation for ESET was seamless, with a few simple clicks it was installed and my first scan was running. You do have the ability to customize every feature but I have chosen the default settings to begin with and will adjust them as time goes along.
My very first stop was the Parental Controls. I am able to choose different categories and levels of settings for each user ID on the computer. Each of my girls have their own IDs which makes the settings simple to initiate. I love the fact that I can block up to 20 categories, hoping to shield them from offensive content which is of course far too readily available. The last thing I did was set up a password which only my husband and I have access to in order to ensure nothing is changed without our knowledge. Ahhh the power!
Next I went to set up my Anti-Theft features which include all of the wonderful things I’ve listed above. I hope this laptop is never stole but oh you’d better believe I’d love to see the their on cam if it ever was.
Again, I have found ESET Smart Security to have all of the protection I thought I needed online and MORE!!
