360 Total Security: not an iteration of traditional security concept!

By Elizabeth Tweetee

On Tuesday, June 9, 2015

Malware scanning, internet security, real-time activity etc. are a few terms we come up with in every Antivirus review and we see nothing more in most of them. Kaspersky, McAfee, Norton, 360 etc. are a few names we all have on tip of the tongue, as best security solution software with handful of extra features. Here we see what 360 can do in real-life challenges!

The software has adopted material design, which is the latest pulse of Tech-world. Blue-in-white theme looks gorgeous. With no clumsy button placement as on Avira free software, user interface is kept minimal and intuitive. One-click access is provided for almost every function, making the software much more newbie friendly.

Scanning speed is comparable with Kaspersky Internet Security 2015. It captured USB shortcut virus, which is often ignored by leading security software such as Kaspersky. It handles all types of malwares efficiently and wipes out threat before it hangs your PC. If you’re unsure about some executable files, leave that job to Sandbox facility. Sandbox is nothing but a secure interface which hides your system essentials from suspicious software.

One thing you should know about this software is that it patches up important web content players. It’s no big deal if you’re not working with too many applets and flash files. However, the feature becomes deal breaker for some professionals who like to keep such players in their original states.

Integrated system tune up is a new trend among security software. Tune up facility cleans up junk files and unwanted records for saving your precious bits. I love this feature in 360 total security software. Unlike many other tune-up utilities, this one provides plug-in clean-up also!


The software stands out as an almost impenetrable wall against malware threats. It’s not iteration of the security concept we are familiar with. Plugin remover and tune-up utilities help me tweak my system speed. I recommend it to everyone. Overall, I rate it 8.2 out of 10!


  • Top notch anti-malware prevention facility
  • Fast and efficient malware scans
  • Helps you clean up plugins
  • Better button placements for added intutiveness


  • No way to prevent patchings

No need to purchase expensive anti virus because 360 security is free and does the job much better

Of all the anti-virus programs I have used 360 security is the best. I have it on my android and on my PC. On android it has the 360 boost where you only have to click on the boost icon and you phone will be automatically cleaned. You can also choose to open the mother icon where you will be met by the cleaner which lets you delete data or folders that you are not using and also large files that you don’t need. The anti-virus that lets you scan and remove all the viruses and malware in your PC. There is an anti-theft option that lets you trace, block or retrieve data in case your phone has been stolen or lost.

The app install two icons and one floating icon. The floating icon if I may call it that, is use to optimize your phone while the boost icon is used to boost you phone. Difference is when you optimize you will basically be clearing out the files that are created temporarily and if you boost you will be shutting down the apps that seem to not be in use. There is also an auto start manager that detects all the apps that automatically start when you boot your device. When you also install an app that is likely to cause harm to your device 360 will prompt you to uninstall it.

The PC version is in two states one with 30 megabytes but doesn’t have all the tools and the 160 megabyte that has all the tools. The PC version has a boot time which will tell you how long your PC takes to boot up... PS (Mine used to take 59 seconds and after using 360 it now only take at most 6 second and at best 4 second beat my record if you can.) 360 offers an inbuilt option to patch you OS when it detects vulnerabilities. When scanning you have a customs scan where you can scan a specific folder, quick scan, this skips some files and full scan, take the longest but scans every inch of hard drive. If you install any harmful content, it is automatically quarantined so that you can recover it if it was not harmful.


I don’t intend to pay for any anti-virus program since 360 has me covered already. Plus with also the online secure that will turn off all the programs that send info out of you PC like tethering apps. I also noticed it turned off Ava find but as long as it’s doing it in my best interest.


  • It’s free to use unlike others that make you to continuously pay to use
  • Doesn’t detect games as viruses hence doesn’t need a game mode
  • The patches will boost you pc a great deal


  • Auto quarantines without any warning
