When we first envisioned Web Companion, we looked not only to create an anti-malware solution. This solution would securely protect our users from the growing threats that loom in the online world but would also stay true to our Adaware original values: “To empower the user to connect with confidence and security.”
Adaware Web Companion is a free anti-malware solution that enables you to prevent malware from infecting your devices.
Powered by the Adaware Malware URL Blocker technology, Web Companion provides you with real-time protection against malicious or fraudulent websites that deliver malware infections, phishing attacks, exploits, malicious or unauthorized redirections, and browser hijacks, at the source before you ever visit them.
When you land on a website that contains malware, it will instantly alert you of the threat and block the malicious website – providing a seamless, enjoyable user experience and peace-of-mind.
Developed by the security experts at Adaware
Web Companion is developed by Adaware, an award-winning security and privacy software provider who also develop Adaware Antivirus their flagship product. Previously known as Lavasoft, Adaware has been providing innovative security solutions for users since 1999.
