In honor of June being Internet Safety Month, how do you protect your computer from viruses and malware?
If you are a Google Chrome user, you can now download BitDefender’s Quickscan for free. If you aren’t familiar with Chrome, this free browser is becoming increasingly popular as a browser of choice for Mac, PC, and Linux users because it boasts quick loading pages, a streamlined look, features designed to maximize efficiency, built-in malware detection, phishing protection, auto-updates, and the ability to customize your windows and tabs.
The newly available Quickscan for Chrome is designed to scan your computer’s memory and opened files for viruses for malware. It also checks the security of websites directly from your browser. Any suspicious files are automatically sent to the BitDefender Quickscan server for analysis.
It typically takes Quickscan less than a minute to perform a virus scan because the Quickscan client (the part that is lives on computer) doesn’t actually have to do any detection, making virus detection unbelievably fast.
Google Chrome users can download BitDefender QuickScan for Windows here.
