ESET Security Review
ESET offers a range of plans for Windows, macOS and Android. The plans include a no-cost one that’s great for basic security, while the more expensive plans come with features like password management and parental controls as well as data encryption. The most expensive plans include gaming mode, which prevents unauthorized access to the computer’s hardware while you are playing.
Installation is simple and quick. It won’t load your computer with bloatware. There are a few other options however the majority of tools and features can be found on the left sidebar.
Connected Home monitor is a new feature that gives a visual representation of all devices connected to your network. You can also use it to scan for vulnerabilities such as open ports or weak router passwords.
A pop-up will appear each when you insert a USB device. You can choose to scan the drive immediately or have the program do so automatically, and should you choose not to run a full scan you can still launch an on-demand check.
Advanced users will appreciate the ability to alter how much of the suite is scanned. You can set the number of folders, files and specific items that the program will scan. You can also define the depth to which the program must scan archives, should you want to omit certain types of files from the initial scan.
