It is manufactured by cybersecurity provider Lavasoft (formerly popularly known as Ad-Aware) Adaware is a security program that aims to tackle the types of rogue apps and privacy invasions that most users aren’t aware of. Adaware consists of programs that track your browsing habits, applications that reroute the browser’s start page, and apps that display irritating advertisements at the most inconvenient times. This free program offers several options that will increase your device’s security and ensure that it runs smoothly.

In our tests, adaware was able to detect the majority of malware we put at it. However, it was unable to assist in getting rid of certain malware. The program comes with numerous useful extras such as a privacy monitor an adaware registry scanner, file shredder, and advanced monitoring of networks. It is worth noting, however, that adaware does not provide as much protection as the top antivirus tools in the market.

Adaware’s last participation in AV Test lab tests resulted in the blocking of only 95. The threat rate was 4% for 0-day threats and 97% of known risks. These aren’t bad scores but they’re far from being near the top security suites.

Adaware users who are looking for improved performance should consider alternatives. We recommend Kaspersky, Bitdefender and others due to their reliability in real-world testing. Some users might be disappointed that only customers of the Pro and Total plans have access to online customer and technical support. On its website, the business provides numerous information and frequently asked questions.
