Our website freeinternetsecuritysoftware.com will continue to expand throughout 2013. Every month we will be adding access to additional free internet security software products, many of which are now Windows 8 compatible. This site is a labor of love, we are not out to sell you anything, free really means free! Check out some of our great selections to find many full featured free security software products. You can support our work in a number of ways including sharing our web address with your friends and coworkers. Please spend some time and visit all of the great areas of our safe and user friendly site!
Our collection of free security software products has evolved from what was originally a project with some friends to determine whether or not we could protect our own computers from the full range of online threats- using only free software. The answer to this was a definite yes! We then became interested in what other free internet security products were becoming available. The list has been growing ever since.
When browsing our site, be confident that you have found the very best free software available. We have spent countless hours searching the internet for the top performing free security software of all types: free firewalls, free antivirus software, free antispyware, free content filtering, free antispam, free privacy software etc. Many of the free software products we feature are totally unique and have no retail equivalents! We have done and continue to do the research, and you benefit from our efforts, it's as simple as that. This site is a labor of love for you to enjoy!
Please make sure that the products you find are compatible with your version of Windows (95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8). Each products website should state which version of Windows their products work with. A number of visitors have requested that we include this information in our listings, so we will continue to update our product descriptions to include this additional information. Because product compatibility often changes, be sure to double check in their download area!
We will soon feature more detailed information and reviews for dozens of high quality free internet security software products such as Zone Alarm, Comodo, Ad-Aware, Spybot, Kerio, Outpost, SpamPal, we-blocker and AVG. (You may notice one or two products that are clearly identified as extended trials. They are included with the free products because their free trial periods range up to one year. We feel that this makes them more than just typical trial versions.)
The free security products we feature, when carefully selected and used in the proper combinations, should be all that you need to protect your computer from the full range of online threats. We soon will include suggestions for a number of combinations that we have already tested. These sample configurations should meet the various needs for a majority of our visitors. Our recommended combinations of free internet security software can protect you from even the newest major threats including: viruses, spyware, adware, spam, trojans, worms, phishing schemes, undesirable content (adult etc.) and hackers.
You spend much of your time online using one of six popular browsers. The following chart provided by StatCounter shows that Google Chrome has recently overtaken Internet Explorer as the most widely used among these browsers:
There is ongoing debate as to which browser does the most to help protect your security while online, many recent unbiased reports give top honors to Google Chrome. In particular the auto updating and sandboxing features make Google Chrome the top favorite with many security experts. Many other opinions exist and each browser tested has unique security features that complicate simply awarding top honors to any one internet browser. You must remember that the choice of which browser to use is just one factor as no browser can come close to offering total protection by itself. This is why the choice of security software remains critical.
Below are additional free internet security software products that we have found but not yet placed in one of the main categories or they are so unique they do not fit neatly into one of the standard groups.
