Report misleading

VIPRE Identity Shield is a fantastic protection program that helps the user keep their privacy protected while they are online. In today's world, just about everyone is watching everything you do. This is especially true online, and in most cases, we are the ones that allow predators access to our most private information without realizing it. VIPRE Identity Shield is specifically for those who want to maintain privacy without the constant need to wipe browser history, make forgettable passwords, and install complex software like firewalls.

Features:

  • Webcam and Monitor Blocker
  • Personal Profile Protection
  • Login Credential Removal
  • Browser History Management
  • Local Document Scanner
  • Real-Time Protection
  • Anti-tracking

The most obvious benefit of VIPRE Identity Shield is its real-time protection. We can't always keep an eye out for things that might be looking to do us harm on the internet, but this program can. Any time you come across malicious content, VIPRE Identity Shield will alert you to the threat and promptly take care of it. The program gives a detailed alert on what kind of activity is happening and its source. VIPRE Identity Shield is so detailed that it let me know that someone was trying to access my email account from another country! What really surprised me is how often I got that alert, it wasn't until I changed my email passwords and activated my two-stage authentification that those alerts stopped. I have to admit, and I was a little worried to see just how much someone wanted to get my private data.

Remove all traceable personal information in seconds

Speaking of private data, I have to applaud VIPRE Identity Shield's ability to hide my personal data. Whenever I enter my phone number, email address, physical address, or credit card information, it gets removed immediately after so no one can get access to is. I am also a fan of the webcam blocker. Unfortunately, most computers come with a built-in webcam, and I don't like the fact that it can be hacked, and someone can watch me with it. If I use VIPRE Identity Shield, I can make sure that the webcam is completely disabled, and access to it is encrypted so hackers can't gain access to it. VIPRE Identity Shield also does an excellent job of removing advertisements that target you after you buy something. It uses what it called an Anti-tracking system. It basically removes any trace of your purchases and browsing history, so third parties can't bombard you with useless ads. This is especially effective on Facebook. If you want to get real protection for online threats, this is the software for you.
