If you don’t have a lot of sensitive information than you will probably like working with Identity Safe. Once you filled the form with the login and password they do not need to be entered manually on a particular site.
Though cloud technology reduces the system load and the size of the local anti-virus databases, it still requires an active Internet connection. Background passive protection against keyloggers gives an opportunity to enter your private data, not even knowing that you are under the guise of anti-virus.
We advise Norton Security Standard especially for users with weak computers who have permanent connection to the Internet. Holders of powerful machines can also pay attention to antivirus software from Symantec, but the choice of security programs for them is much broader.
