What happens when the program finds a virus?
When detected, malicious files are isolated and placed in safe storage on your computer. They can be viewed in the threat list section. It’s up to you whether to erase a dangerous file from your computer or restore it if you are convinced it is a false positive and not a threat.
Why would I need camera and microphone protection?
It hasn’t been proven, but it is suspected that even safe apps might be spying on you using your microphone and/or camera to determine your preferences and needs in order to show you related ads. Malicious software may access your camera and microphone for further blackmail or extortion purposes. At Outbyte, we don’t want you being spied on, so we help ensure that your camera and microphone are used only with your permission.
Do you update the virus database?
Outbyte has a built-in system to automatically update the virus detection engine and the program itself. The software checks for updates automatically, but you can always initiate the process manually. Updating the program keeps the virus database up to date, making it possible to find the latest threats, as well as adding new features and tools to effectively protect your PC.
How do you check browser passwords?
The tool scans web browser files to detect vulnerable passwords and warn you about them. To determine the safety of your passwords, Antivirus compares them with each other and against its built-in database of compromised passwords. The tool scans passwords locally on your PC. If a compromised or weak password is found, we recommend manually changing it right away.
