ESET Security Review

ESET offers a variety of plans for Windows, macOS, Android and Linux. There’s a no-cost plan that’s ideal for basic security, and the more expensive options include features like parental controls and password management and data encryption. The most expensive plans include a gaming mode that blocks unauthorized access to the hardware of your computer while you play.

Installation is fast and simple. It doesn’t burden your system with bloatware also. There are a few extra settings to tweak, but most features and tools are clearly labeled on the interface’s left-hand sidebar.

Connected Home monitor is a new feature that gives a visual representation of all devices connected to your network. It can also be used to check for vulnerabilities such as open ports or weak passwords for routers.

A pop-up appears every time you insert a USB device. You can choose to scan the drive instantly or set the program to scan the drive automatically, and if you decide not to do a full scan you can still run an on-demand check.

More advanced users will appreciate the option to control the type and amount of much the suite scans. You can choose the number of folders and files which the program should scan and also specific items such as boot sectors and networks. You can also specify the depth to which the program will scan archives, in case you wish to omit certain types of files from the initial scan.
