Review: Meet PSafe, a great Brazilian antivirus for your kids a computer’s safety

One of my Brazilian readers was nice enough to share this wonderful article.

 

Studies say that 70% of 3 to 4 year olds in Sweden go online at least once a year (2013). In the UK, a third of 3 to 4 year olds go online using a desktop PC, laptop or netbook (2012). In days like these, where children start using computers from a really young age, you have to be really careful with your child’s safety and your computer safety. You can solve the first issue by supervising what your kid is watching or playing when he’s in your PC. But how can you solve the other issue? If he clicks a single wrong link on the internet, your computer and personal info can be compromised. That’s why it’s so important to have a really good antivirus.

I recently got to know this amazing software and I want to share it with you all. It’s a totally free Brazilian anti-virus and despite still not having a version totally in English, it’s very intuitive and easy to use, as you can see in the tutorial below.

If you noticed, the download was pretty fast. You may be asking yourself: does it really work though? According to the antivirus company that makes it, Psafe, after their partnership with BitDefender, their antivirus reached an amazing 100% of virus detection. That’s better than most paid softwares.

One of the biggest qualities of PSafe is that it’s such a small software that it doesn’t even require much of your computer. It also doesn’t freeze it when you’re scanning for viruses. You may even forget it’s there. This is amazing because if you have kids using your pc they will be playing games and that should work perfectly with PSafe.

You can also schedule a scan in case you are like me and always forget it. How to schedule a scan In this screen you can see how to schedule a scan. You can also learn or teach your kids how to say all the days of the week in Portuguese or Spanish, starting on Sunday. 😛

In case you have any difficulties in this stage, check the video tutorial!

If you liked the tutorial and decided to download the antivirus, you may also like the other PSafe products that are available in their website. While you download the antivirus, you can also install PSafe Lockbox, a cloud computing server that allows you to upload files and access them from everywhere in the world. You can store up to 2 GB of data. One of the interesting things about PSafe Lockbox is that it works along with PSafe’s Antivirus, so you can save all those family pictures knowing that they are secure.

Another software that you can use along with the antivirus is PSafe Turbo, an enhancement software that helps you clean cookies, history, limit your download/upload speed, and also accelerates your internet. This software really comes in handy when you have kids at home because kids these LOVE making downloads. If you don’t have any software to limit their downloads, you won’t be able to use the internet properly.

Last, but not least, they also have a search engine that comes with the antivirus.  This is really interesting because it makes looking for things on the internet extra easy, good for when the kids need to do some homework.
