Benefits of using the latest version of Quick Heal (v17.00)

1. Enhanced Parental Control

Internet Browsing Control – restrict children from visiting unwanted websites.

Application Control – restrict children from accessing applications such as gaming programs, messaging tools, media players, etc.

PC Access Control – fix a timetable based on which, children can access the computer on particular days and time.

2. Anti-Keylogger
Prevents malicious programs called keyloggers from recording what you type on your keyboard while you are doing online banking or shopping or simply browsing the Internet.

3. Virtual Keyboard
Attackers can steal your confidential information by installing spyware or keyloggers on your machine. These are data-stealing software that record what you type on your keyboard, and send the information to attackers. This can be prevented by using the Virtual Keyboard. Any information typed on this keyboard gets encrypted and cannot be recorded or accessed by any malicious software.

4. Malware Protection
The existing Malware Protection of Quick Heal is now enhanced and offers more protection to your PC against spyware, adware, keyloggers, riskware, and other malicious programs.
