Frequently Asked Questions

Most of us use the terms "Malware" and "Virus" interchangeably, but they are technically different. “Malware” is an umbrella term, while viruses are just a type of malware among different other kinds of malware. Malware is designed to infect and harm the host system, while computer viruses are designed to replicate and spread to other devices as widely as possible. They need a host (device) to transmit.

All viruses are malware, but not all malware is a virus.

T9 Antivirus is a software program designed to detect & remove malicious programs and codes that may infect the device. It offers the following benefits:

  • - Identifies malicious code, programs, software.
  • - Quarantine threats.
  • - Protects the system from zero-day attacks, malware, virus, PUP, adware, and other threats.
  • - Scheduler to scan the system automatically.
  • - Different scan types - Quick Scan, Deep Scan, and Custom Scan.
  • - USB stick protection and built-in firewall.

With TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot highlighted in Windows 11, some Windows users believe now they don’t need an antivirus. But this isn’t true as TPM protects from threats related to encryption, and Secure Boot ensures drivers and operating are valid. This means to some extent; you are protected from newer kinds of attacks, but what about the prevailing threats? To stay protected from all types of threats and keep sensitive data safe, you still need an Antivirus with real-time scanning, regular updates, scheduler, exploit protection, and more. T9 Antivirus has all the primary and advanced security features, filling the security gap and ensuring all-round protection without system speed and storage space.

If you are explicitly asking for antivirus, then the answer is No. Unlike the paid version of antivirus, the free version of antivirus offers only basic protection, and in some cases, hackers use Freeware to spread infections.

Remember, there's nothing called a free lunch; you have to pay the price for everything. “Free” Antivirus inevitably makes money by tracking your online activities, installing junkware, and showing advertisements.
