BzzCampaign for Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security


   As some of you may already know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, by Word of Mouth and also through sites like FacebookTwitter and Blogger.

   This BzzReview is about Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security. Titanium™ Maximum Security will protect your PC, Mac and even your smartphone. This Maximum Security scans for viruses, malware, spyware and spam, keeping you safe from those who can steal your most valuable information. Trend Micro Vault, Secure Erase file shredder and SafeSync secure online storage keeps all of your data safe, if ever your computer may crash. Titanium™ Maximum Security keeps you safe on your favorite social networking site, by scanning and letting you know what links are safe or malicious. With customizable tools, you will keep you and your family as safe as can be.


   Before I could install Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security, I had to uninstall my previous virus scanner, which was AVG Free Virus Scanner. I knew my computer was safe from viruses because my previous scanner had just done a scan before I uninstalled. After installing Titanium™ Maximum Security, I immediately started a scan on my whole computer, just to be sure my computer was still just as safe as before. My computer was fine. No viruses, malware or spyware!


   I activated my SafeSync and it started doing its job effectively. I thought that it would be a great idea to save all of my files with SafeSync, but had heard that if ever you delete SafeSync, then you lose all of your files. I am not sure yet how to delete SafeSync, but when I figure it out, I will try not to lose all of my files. My problem with SafeSync has to do with the file saving itself. My computer runs off of wifi speed from my modem with broadband internet and when SafeSync is saving files, it takes all of the energy from the wifi and makes the all computers and game consoles, running off the the network, very slow! So, while on my computer, I pause the SafeSync so that it doesn't interrupt my internet connection. 


   When I first saw that Titanium™ Maximum Security helped scan out malicious links on social networking sites, I was excited! After installing to my computer, I opened up my web browser and tested it out.
   It wasn't working for me and didn't know what do, I went into settings to try to figure it out and found nothing. I went onto BzzAgent's Facebook wall and asked around and also went to the Trend Micro™ website and realized that Mozilla Firefox was not supported for Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security social networking scan. I never use Internet Explorer, but saw that Google Chrome was supported by Trend Micro™. I had been meaning to download Chrome and this was the greatest reason to do so. 
   When on the social network of my choice, like Facebook, links that are okay to view from friends and pages, will be highlighted in green. Malicious sites will turn Red. I have encountered links highlighted gray with a question mark, which means that Trend Micro™ is not sure about that site. It is nice to have and doesn't cause a problem at all for me.

    
   I love that I can bring internet security to my smartphone as well. I downloaded the Mobile Security Personal Edition App for my Android phone. The app allows you to scan phone apps, gives surf, call and text security and will also let you configure lost device protection to your phone. 
   The app is pretty basic, but allows you to set parental controls if needed and also will allow you to block calls and text from annoying unknown callers. I have my Safe Surfing protection level set to normal. This provides balanced protection without blocking minor risks. Safe Surfing also to add allowed sites and will also allow you to add sites that you would like to block.
   Like any other app, this app does run in the background on the phone. My phone battery runs out of juice at the end of the day, so I find myself 'Force Closing' this Mobile Security application to be sure that I have the battery power that I may need. It does a full scan at midnight of each and everyday and also does a scan of new apps that I have just downloaded, so I am not worried about security after I have closed the app. This app is available for Android and for iphone, ipad and ipod touch.


   One fun thing you can do with your Titanium™ console is customize it. I customized my console with a picture of my youngest son. It is great to be able to customize a virus scanner to fit my wants and needs. And, I can change it whenever I want!
