Antivirus deals 2018: What to look for

We’ll only share deals if we think they’re good enough to be worth buying, so anything we recommend here will be a great saving on a service we trust. However, it can still be tricky to know which is right for you.

We’ve got everything you need to know about antivirus, including our pick of the best, in our best antivirus 2018 article.

Unless you've got some sort of security software installed, your PC, laptop or mobile device is vulnerable. Antivirus software detects, and then prevents, disarms or removes malicious programs or malware, often referred to as 'viruses'.

But security software is no longer just about countering viruses. More important now is the security of personal data and protection from ransomware.

You can find discounts of more than 50% on antivirus for your Mac, PC or mobile device, sometimes on the websites of the antivirus providers themselves in the form of a digital download, but you can also find cheap boxed versions of the software at places like Amazon, Argos and Currys. However, in that instance you'll have to wait for the box to arrive and then install it, so it's up to you to decide which you'd prefer to go for and how much more of a saving it offers.
