I’ve been using Vipre products for quite some time.
Their tech support - on the rare occasion that I’ve had to use it - has been
Vipre Mobile Security for Android is at a price anyone can afford.
Having said all that however - if you don’t wish to purchase Vipre Anti Virus
or Internet Security for your Windows PC - then the Microsoft alternative - as
part of Windows 10 - may well do you.
I base this on the fact that - those users I know who use the Windows 10
operating system along with its built-in security and protection tools - have
not up until this time been infected by Malware of any kind and nor have they
suffered for ransomware, any downtime due to any virus infection etc so that
alone in my view speaks volumes and good on Microsoft for building security
that seems to function well into their operating system.
Having said all that - and regardless of whether you choose to use a Third
party security App or Microsoft’s built-in solution - security and safety of
your computer does indeed begin with you.
Don’t just accept free offers that pop-up when you’re carrying out searches for
software for example, don’t click on links in email messages unless you’re
absolutely sure what they are, simple prevention measures will save you a lot
of headaches in time.
