How much does Comodo cost?
Is it worth buying their SSL?
This guide was originally published at The Daily WTF. The web has changed a lot in the last 10 years, and all of this change affects one particular topic - encryption. Today, if you don't encrypt anything, your site will show a big red banner with a skull and crossbones informing your potential customers that they are entering an area that cannot be accessed without the proper encryption key. The message may have a link to a website telling you how to get that key, and maybe it even uses some colorful language to make it sound scary.
It doesn't have to be like that. Not anymore.
Today, the problem has been solved. If you are online, you can be sure that your data is as safe as it can be. It isn't totally safe. There are people that will try to hack into your data and your system, but it is definitely safe from the majority of attacks.
Encryption is also useful on mobile devices. If you use an app that stores your sensitive information (like bank accounts or credit cards), or if you do something like an online shopping cart, you are protected. You won't lose any of your credit card info, and all of that information stays securely on your mobile device.
But what about us Internet users who aren't working with apps and don't have any sensitive information on our phones? The thing is, encrypting the web has been relatively easy - until very recently. For a long time, you either had to pay a lot of money for something called an SSL certificate, or you could do something called HSTS. But for the average user, none of those were an option. That was until Comodo launched their Cloudflare SSL. A service that has been working since 2024, offering SSL encryption for free to anyone that wants it.
The problem is, people don't use Cloudflare's SSL certificate as often as they should. It works great, and it is free. People complain that the SSL certificate is slow, but it still works fine. So why not use it?
That is the question that I had in mind while reading through their FAI would really appreciate a simple answer - why haven't more people started using it?
Is Comodo Internet Security any good?
I've recently started using Comodo Internet Security 5 and I have to say that I really like it a lot.
Everything seems to work fine except for its built-in, and annoying Ad-blocker. It won't let me do anything other than set rules that block sites that come up as being infected with malware, even though Ad-block is the only one I've installed. The reason I want Ad-block is that on some of my sites I sell, I do allow ads, but I put them on my site so I can control what gets shown. This doesn't work on Comodo, and I really would like it to work because it's much easier to implement than some other programs. I'm sure you know how annoying these ad-blockers are, because I can't just remove the program and use it with the normal Ad-blocker, because they are interrelated. I'm not really trying to use Ad-block, just use it to do what I want it to do. So, does anyone here have any suggestions for me? Thank you.
Re: Does Comodo Internet Security any good? Quote:I'm not really trying to use Ad-block, just use it to do what I want it to do. You cannot block ads on most browsers. So, Comodo IS cannot possibly be of any use. Try another browser.
I think you mean that you cannot use Comodo's "Ad-block" features with other Ad-block software? Sorry, I don't have a good answer. I use Ad-block all the time and it works great for me. I wouldn't want any ad-blocker that worked with the rest of my browsing. So I guess my solution would be to keep Comodo running, then simply disable Ad-block when using the other programs. That way, I'd be able to use all the Ad-block features while also having the convenience of disabling it when I want. Maybe you have some other suggestions?
Is there a 100% free antivirus?
it depends what you want to do with your antivirus software.
All free AV programs are not compatible with all types of malware, and not perfect. So if all that is ok with you, then you'll be fine.
Personally, I use Avast for my daily personal desktop usage, and Norton for my laptop. I understand a lot of times it goes hand in hand. It's not the only reason.
With that being said, I have used it over the last week since I found it so useful as an aid, while on line (or anywhere else really) just to ensure my own computer is not infected with any virus. It scans/searches for various malware types, and alerts me of what it finds! But, it doesn't completely remove or stop certain malicious items; it simply puts a flag with the name of "This is a false positive" or something like that. I still scan and download at my own discretion. This service allows me to do all I want online. And it's been great.
If a program has a history and an active agent which is why I use norton free it says on the bottom in a dark blue text box if it was able to stop it from happening last time and say that I need to do something called virus cleanup it does it if someone gets hacked into it deletes files if it catches it doing anything and tells me it doesnt think you had virus problems by saying virus control this time it says it didnt have information that anything isnt in my computer right now. It takes a while to clean. It works for me. Also sometimes it does tell that a program like windows installer may have a virus on my computer and if install it I put it on my virus list and its on there too. But I still dont get why norton doesnt tell me I have a virus
I agree. Most people don't know that they have a virus and think that its a false positive that needs to be deleted, etc. Once your computer is free of infections, you can decide if you want to run a virus program.
You should only be buying anti-virus program if you are going to be using it on multiple computers. The single-user programs require manual scanning between changes, thus causing potential delays.
