Max Secure scores major points for the variety of services offered. They offer mobile security for Android, iOS, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile. They have a slew of PC optimization tools, several downloadable apps such as a file protector and surf hider, and gamer antivirus product. They have an excellent file shredder that removes traces of online and offline activities. The file protector allows you to password-protect the files on your PC. The spyware detector, the company’s top product, detects and removes root-kits and other types of malware. The top anti-virus package, which is scrutinized above all else, comes with most of the features best for protection, including a firewall, email protection, and anti-phishing protection. The 30-day money back guarantee seems like good insurance in case you’re not satisfied with Max Secure.
The lack of background information available on this company is a concern— an AV-Test or AV-Comparative background. Even more concerning is the general sentiment found in comments online that the company is not particularly reliable about honoring their-money back guarantee. One user explained that after requesting a refund, he received a robotic response that requested more information, then took longer than the allotted 30 days to process it—thus rendering the refund request obsolete.
