Panda Dome Complete for Windows is the newest security suite made by Panda. Previously, the Panda company offered Panda Free Antivirus, as well as the purchasable Panda Dome Essential and Panda Dome Advanced. Now, Panda Dome Complete takes all the elements of the former programs and adds an advanced password manager that has encryption. With this, you receive antivirus, firewall protection, parental controls, a cleanup tool, a "one-trick anti-theft system," and the previously mentioned password protection manager.

Panda Dome Complete does offer a smooth looking interface, in addition to ransomware protection, and firewall, VPN, USB vaccination. The program is compatible with Windows, macOS, and Android, which is nice. However, there are quite a few negative aspects of Panda Dome Complete for Windows.

First, the price. A single license for the program costs an obscene $106.99. Most other security suites stay around $75, depending on what they offer. And as this product is for Windows, purchasing it for macOS and Android has its disadvantages. For the same cost of $106.99, macOS and Android users do not really get Panda Dome Complete but instead receive Panda Dome Essentials, the companies previous security suite that can be bought for a much lower cost. For multiple licenses of Panda Dome Complete, the prices continue to rise. For ten devices, you can buy the security suite for $178.99. And to install it on all of your devices (over ten), it is $202.99 PER YEAR. To give you perspective, McAfee Total Protection is less than half that cost for a year-long subscription.

The second negative aspect of Panda Dome Complete is, despite stating it is a "complete" security system, it does very little for protecting users against threatening, and counterfeit websites, which is a major concern for many people online as that is often were viruses are picked up. Third, the anti-theft included in Panda Dome Complete apparently did not work in a few of the tests ran by reviewers. This is clearly problematic since it doesn't do what it says it should do. In tests run by reviews of the program, they found that the system was okay with the malware protection test, but failed in the malicious URL blocking test, as it let 65% of the malware through. In a test of its abilities against phishing, Panda Dome Complete also failed, as it proved a dismal 46% protection rate.

And lastly, the big selling point of this program is the password manager with encryption. However, many users find that element of the program to be intelligent and archaic. Most reviews of Panda Dome Complete say the same thing. You can get other quality security suites for a much lower cost, or you could buy the much cheaper Panda Dome Essentials or Advanced, and get your own password manager with encryption somewhere else.
