Verdict The Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus code will not take up much room on your PC because it leverages cloud technologies.
Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus is more than antivirus software. It is antimalware. It stops the viruses and worms that exist in order to infect other computers, but it also protects you during web surfing sessions by blocking harmful websites. And it takes down spyware that tries to deceive you or exploit vulnerabilities in operating systems. Spyware steals information about you and sends it to someone else. Some spyware is fairly benign. Adware, for example, watches you in order to tailor advertisements based on your habits. Adware can also happen with your consent if you opt to use a free service that involves accepting ads. Another less-lethal form of spyware is the tracking cookie. Advertising companies install cookies on your computer in response to you clicking on ads. Unless you delete it, the advertiser will know when you visit a site with its ads.
