Vipre Antivirus Review
VIPRE Advanced Security offers protection against viruses and malware in files and email, but our tests showed mixed results.
What We Like
- Reasonably priced subscriptions between $2.91 and $5.42 per month
- Easy-to-use interface with many customizable options
- Free 30-day trial with no credit card required
What We Don't Like
- Company gives some customer data to advertisers
- Poorly organized support and no direct phone support
- Mac versions of the software are sub-standard
Bottom LineWith behavior-based scanning, Vipre can detect malware even if it's not in its database.
