You already know that XFINITY High-Speed Internet Service offers blazing fast Internet connection speeds up to 350 Mbps, as well as the ability to create a fast and reliable in-home Wi-Fi network capable of handling several digital devices at one time.
But did you also know that each XFINITY Internet subscriber also gets access to a state-of-the-art Internet security package to protect you and your loved ones from malware, viruses, and spyware? With XFINITY Internet Security, you can rest assured that you are fully protected from any malignant threats on the Internet.
What is XFINITY Internet Security?
XFINITY Internet Security is a special version of Constant Guard/Norton Security Suite that has been optimized for XFINITY users. Just like its name implies, Constant Guard/Norton Security Suite is a 24/7 sentry that stands guard over your XFINITY Internet service.
It comes free with every order of XFINITY High-Speed Internet, and is a $160 value. When you install XFINITY Internet Security on your computer, you get the following:
- Safety from new threats that emerge on the Internet
- Comprehensive antivirus and spyware protection
- Automatic backup of important files to local storage
- Improved performance and speeds
Let’s take a closer look at each of these in greater detail…
Safety from new threats that emerge on the Internet
XFINITY Internet Security enables you to stay one step ahead of online threats from malicious hackers. This is important because one constant on the Internet is that hackers are continually trying to discover new ways to get access to sensitive personal and financial information on your computer.
For example, if you regularly use public Wi-Fi networks (even those that require password authentication before logging on), you are placing your computer at risk. Sometimes these threats can lurk in the background, just waiting to go to work once they’ve been activated, as in the case of bots.
As a result, XFINITY Internet Security is a flexible, adaptable solution that’s constantly being updated to reflect the newest threats. This gives you the peace of mind that XFINITY is constantly looking over your computer, protecting it from unwanted hackers.
Whether you are using social media, downloading files, opening email attachments, or shopping online, you will have the best possible protection from any and all threats that might emerge.
Comprehensive antivirus and spyware protection
XFINITY Internet Security helps to identify new threats, and then takes steps to protect you from those threats. This includes complete analysis of viruses, spyware, trojans, worms and any phishing attacks that are designed to steal your identity.
Each of these threats behaves differently online, and each of them needs to be addressed in a unique manner. Unlike other solutions that take a one-size-fits-all approach, XFINITY Internet Security customizes its response to each threat on a case-by-case basis.
Automatic backup of important files to local storage
Have you ever accidentally deleted important files in the middle of a big project? Well, those worries are long gone when you use XFINITY Internet Security. That’s because you have the option to choose to have certain files automatically backed up on your computer.
Saving to local storage is much safer than saving to the cloud, and also safer than saving to external storage devices. When a file is stored locally, it means that it can be protected with iron-clad security.
XFINITY Internet Security provides improved performance and speeds
One issue about malware and viruses that doesn’t get enough attention is how it can markedly slow down your computer. Over time, speeds might be reduced significantly. That means your overall Internet browsing experience could be significantly compromised as well.
Thus, XFINITY Internet Security helps to scrub your computer of unwanted worms, viruses, trojans and spyware. These often lurk in the background and may be largely undetectable without the strongest possible security detection tools.
You can think of XFINITY Internet Security as providing a regular deep cleansing of your computer. It constantly scours and disinfects. This constant scrubbing is what helps to improve overall performance and boost overall speeds.
When you get XFINITY High-Speed Internet, you want to tap into the maximum speeds possible, right? Instead of being held back by malicious software and viruses that sap computing power, you will be running at full speed.
So stream as many movies as you want, download as much music as you want - you’ll always have access to the fastest possible speeds.
Additional features and benefits of using XFINITY Internet Security
As you can see, XFINITY Internet Security takes active measures to protect your computer. Here are just some of the additional features and benefits of using XFINITY Internet Security:
- Beefed-up identity protection measures
- Real-time alerts if people are trying to steal your home Wi-Fi connection
- Easy installation and use
Each of these features and benefits helps to ensure that you and your family is completely protected every time you use XFINITY High-Speed Internet Service.
Identity Protection Measures
Being able to protect your personal identity on the Internet is paramount these days, so XFINITY Internet Security provides a number of useful tools to help you. For example, it remembers, stores and automatically enters your username and password on sites where this feature is enabled. This prevents hackers from getting access to either your username or password, and from people sitting next to you or near you from copying your keystrokes.
Alerts if People Are Trying To Steal Your Home Wi-Fi Connection
Sometimes, slow in-home Wi-Fi connections are the result of neighbors or other unauthorized people trying to use your home Internet for free without telling you. With XFINITY Internet Security, you can always see who is using your network, and then take active measures to prevent them from logging on. This keeps your Internet connection speeds always at their peak levels.
Easy Installation and Use
XFINITY Internet Security is meant to be used on all of your computers as a way of keeping you safe. As a result, it is easy to install and use. Instructions are readily available, and if you need help with any aspect of the installation, there is a handy FAQ online that will walk you through each of the steps.
XFINITY Internet Security Is a Full-Threat Detection System
When it comes to Internet security, it’s best to take a zero-tolerance approach. Even a single virus or worm, if undetected, can mean the loss of your identity or unauthorized financial transactions. As a result, XFINITY Internet Security gives you a full-threat detection system against:
- Phishing attacks
When new hacking methods are discovered, they are added to the security threat matrix. As a result, you get the peace of mind of knowing that you are always protected.
There are plenty of ways to upgrade your online security, including a number of optional features and packages that might require additional installation:
- Norton Mobile Security
- Freedome VPN
- Bot Detection and Removal
- Identity Guard
Norton Mobile Security was specifically created for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Since you are likely using a range of different digital devices with your Internet service, it’s important to make sure each of these devices has adequate protection.
Freedome VPN provides additional security if you are using a public Wi-Fi network. It’s known that hackers and identity thieves like to hang out on these networks, looking for unprotected devices and computers. So it’s helpful to have the very best protection every time you leave your house.
Bot detection and removal has become ever more important, given the ability of hackers to infiltrate computers using back-door security techniques. For example, they can write a malicious piece of code known as a bot, and find a way for you to download that bot to your computer.
The bot then waits patiently for the right time to strike, and can be combined into a wide-ranging “botnet” to accomplish some nefarious objectives. So it’s really important to detect these bots before they ever get started!
Identity Guard is an even stronger form of identity protection, giving you even more security and peace of mind every time you enter your personal data online, such as during an e-commerce shopping transaction, or when paying bills online.
XFINITY Internet Security is all about having a superior Internet experience
When you’re downloading music, streaming movies, or opening up e-mail attachments, the last thing that you want to worry about is some hacker or identity thief trying to access your personal information. And you don’t want to worry about malware, trojans or spyware slowing down your computer and compromising your Internet experience.
With XFINITY Internet Security, you get a comprehensive, state-of-the-art security system that keeps you and your family safe. You don’t have to worry about slower speeds or inferior performance, either, because XFINITY Internet Security is constantly scanning your computer for new threats and disinfecting any threats that might already be on your computer.
Best of all, XFINITY Internet Security is included with your XFINITY High-Speed Internet. This is an amazing $160 value, and it’s yours completely FREE!
