Choose the right security software for you

Your computer and mobile device/s may already have some form of anti-virus software in-built, as many modern computer and mobile devices do. Alternatively, there’s a range of other security solutions that are available that may suit your needs. While no software offers 100% protection, using it can help keep you secure.

Check for malware

To check for malware, ensure your anti-virus is on and run a 'full-scan'. To guard against future threats, turn on automatic updates, enable automatic scanning, and perform regular back-ups.

Can't remove a virus?

If your software can’t remove a virus, contact a technical support provider.

No protection software will completely guarantee against unauthorised access or virus contamination, but it may increase the security of your computer systems.
