Online Backup Storage

Apart from one internet security software competitor, Webroot is the only program that introduces a 25GB cloud backup space. Some applications do not even have online storage at all.
With a smart cloud technology, Webroot lets you back up documents, files, music, and other files to protect them from threats real-time. It also allows you to quickly scan your files and secure your financial details and online identity without slowing down the Internet.
File Shredder and System Optimizer
Unlike most security software, Webroot Internet Security Complete integrates a virtual file shredder in its latest version. If you do not already know, deleting or moving a file to trash does not remove it entirely from your computer’s hard disk, thus, it whatever file you delete can still be picked up using file-recovery utilities.
Webroot’s file shredder works to erase any trace of that deleted file to free up your hard drive. It also clears your device of traces of online activity and wipes it up so that private and important information remains protected.
When you install Webroot into your device, it automatically activates a tracker. So that when you lose it, you will be able to track your device and remotely lock it so sensitive data cannot be accessed. The tracker also lets you wipe your lost device from a remote location to keep any private information from leaking.
With the intelligence network constantly updated in real time, Webroot Internet Security Complete 2016 automatically scans your device and repair infected systems.
Moreover, it can detect phishing and malicious downloaded applications, links, and files and stops them before infecting any other program.
Another useful feature is Webroot’s password manager. It stores usernames, passwords, and even credit card details in one password-protected location, which you can utilize to access your online accounts safely.
However, Webroot Internet Security Complete 2016 does not offer an anti-theft functionality or parental controls in the Window module as opposed to other Internet security software that do. Meanwhile, although the software’s Mac module has anti-phishing, it does not include an online backup storage.
