Features and Add-ons
TotalAV’s entry-level Essential package is chock full of features. Some of the standouts include a VPN, an ad-blocker and a disk cleaner that searches for duplicate files and junk data that can slow down your device.
You’ll also get access to a suite of device optimisation tools (PC only) and a browser manager and cleaner you can use to clear cookies and delete your browsing history.
If that’s not enough for you, the more expensive packages pile on more features. Antivirus Pro adds a password manager and an ebook on antiviruses to the mix, while the Ultimate package adds priority support and a smartphone optimiser. Total AV has also partnered up with Experian to offer a unique take on identity protection (though, unfortunately, this feature is only available in the US and at an extra cost).
To be fair, we did miss some functionality. Case in point, there are no parental controls, file backup or cloud storage. However, given the sheer breadth of what’s on offer, especially on the entry-level package, this seems like a very minor complaint.
