Kaspersky Security Cloud Personal Review

Kaspersky Security Cloud Personal Review
PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • $89.99 per year for 3 devices
Kaspersky Security Cloud is an antivirus tool designed to protect you when you surf, socialise and shop, on any device. Here, we bring you our review, and help you decide whether it's the best antivirus for you.



At first sight, there's little to choose between Kaspersky Security Cloud and Kaspersky Total Security. All the main antivirus tools required are in both products. So, what's so significant about Security Cloud?

The main difference is that this product contains patented adaptive security technology, which automatically adjusts your security settings and advises you based on your current activities.
When a new device connects to your WiFi network, for example, adaptive security announces the event, which means that neighbours cannot leech your bandwidth without discovery. Connecting to websites thaat don't have proper security certificates also generates a pop up. The certificate may have simply expired, but fake sites create their own bogus certificates to trap the unwary.

Another nice feature is the strength indicator, which pops up when you enter a password. This works locally, so your password is never sent anywhere for analysis, and basically analyses the password's complexity.

Speaking of passwords, you have Kaspersky Security Cloud inform you if you're using the same password for different sites, and there's the usual password wallet to store them all.

It's not all plain sailing, however. Installing Kaspersky Security Cloud also installs kaspersky Secure Connection, which gives you access to a secure VPN. A slight peeve here is that deleting the main product doesn't also delete the VPN. Another is that you're limited to 200MB of data per day.

On the plus side, if you've every mistakenly installed a browser toolbar when installing software, then rejoice. Kaspersky Security Cloud gives you the option (enabled by default) to only install software and not adware when downloading anything.

Included in the price is Kaspersky Mobile Antivirus. This is not installed by default with the main product. Instead, you must download it from the main Kaspersky control panel. If you're already logged into your Kaspersky account, however, registration is automatic.

So, how much does all this cost? Well, you can get Kaspersky Security Cloud for a year and use it across three devices for £34.99/$89.99 at time of writing. The family option offers 20 accounts, and is £69.99/$149.99 per year.

Vorwerk Kobold VR300 Review

At nearly £1000, does the VR300 offer enough to justify the purchase when you can pick up a robot vac for £100s less? Find out in our Vorwerk Kobold VR300 review
Should I Buy The Vorwerk Kobold VR300?
It’s expensive, but the Kobold VR300 provides an impressive vacuuming experience that we think could rival that of a conventional vacuum cleaner, but it’s not as smart as some rivals – yet. The low-profile design, upgraded SLAM technology and D-shape design allow the VR300 to safely navigate around obstacles and reach every last nook and cranny.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
