Panda Antivirus Review

Panda Antivirus

Panda Antivirus is a free security suite that guards against viruses, spyware, rootkits, malware and phishing attempts on your computer. It also blocks hackers who try to access sensitive data like credit card numbers and passwords for theft purposes; USB devices are scanned for ransomware threats as they’re connected; there is parental control included and virtual keyboard to stop keyloggers from collecting login credentials when typing login details into a form field; keylogging software also gets detected with this application!

The package features an intuitive and accessible user experience designed to appeal to even novice tech-users. Its main window displays an eye-catching backdrop with icons clearly labeled to describe their functions – for instance, clicking on antivirus opens the Antivirus component window that displays your current protection status and allows you to configure your last scan settings; clicking USB Protection opens a separate window where you can adjust USB device vaccination and scanning settings; finally clicking Process Monitor opens a security-centric task manager which shows any unneeded processes running on your computer.

Panda Antivirus’ interface offers the added feature of notifications so you can stay up-to-date with the status and actions taken by its software. Email or mobile phone notifications can notify you when an infected file has been detected or when an antivirus action has been taken; there’s even an optional bar at the top that shows news updates!

Panda earned two of three stars during our tests for real-world protection, meaning it effectively stopped infections without draining too much processing power on our test system. However, its high false positive rate meant it mistakenly identified certain non-infected files as infectious and so may need further tweaks for optimal performance.

Choose the Panda Dome plan, and you will get everything that’s included in the standard Panda package plus ransomware protection. Additional features such as Rescue Kit can help create recovery drives and disinfect any infected PC, and Virtual Keyboard blocks any programs from accessing sensitive information while typing.

Panda Security may come at an attractive price point; we believe Norton and Bitdefender offer better overall value with their more comprehensive suites. Still, all packages from Panda are available as 30-day free trials backed by money-back guarantees so you can test out this product without taking any unnecessary risks.
