Webroot SecureAnywhere, unlike most antivirus software programs, is a cloud program that makes use of remote detection to provide device security. It works by scanning files and comparing them to the cloud database for potential threats. This method has a small impact on PC performance and can be used even with older software or hardware. Its security features include ransomware protection as well as phishing protection.

Webroot’s user interface is dark and may not be as sleek and modern as some of the other alternatives, but it still is straightforward and simple to navigate. The main screen displays your PC’s current status and allows you to run a Smart Scan or manual check. The left side rail has all the major functions and utilities, divided into four broad categories.
