ESET Security Review

ESET offers a variety of plans for Windows, macOS and Android. There’s a free version that offers basic security. The more expensive plans include features like parental controls, password management and encryption of data. The most expensive plan includes a gaming mode that will stop unauthorized access to your computer’s hardware while you play.

Installation is simple and fast. It doesn’t burden your system with bloatware either. There are a few other options but 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 use it to look over your network for weaknesses such as open ports or weak router passwords.

A pop-up window appears each time you insert a USB device. You can scan the drive instantly or set it to scan on a regular basis. If you don’t wish to scan the entire drive, you can still run an on-demand scan.

More advanced users will appreciate the option to adjust the frequency and type of the suite is able to scan. You can specify the number of folders, files and specific items that the program will check. You can also specify the depth to which the program should scan archives, if you prefer to exclude certain types of files from the initial scan.
