Web Anti-Virus blocks malicious programs that may can reach your computer over the Internet. Before you open a web page or a file downloaded from the Web, the application will intercept and analyze the object. If the page or the file is safe, you can open it without noticing the whole process. If you have downloaded a harmful object, Web Anti-Virus will block it and display a warning (this is a default scenario; you can change this behavior in the settings, as described below).

If you disable Web Anti-Virus, there is a risk of infecting your computer with a one of the widespread programs that steal your personal data, show disturbing ad banners, or encrypt your files and demand a ransom for unlocking them. We strongly recommend that you keep Web Anti-Virus enabled at all times if you use the Internet.

Web Anti-Virus scans incoming HTTP and FTP network traffic. The analysis is based on antivirus databases with malware signatures, and heuristic algorithms that detects new threats by their similarity with the known ones.
