Follow these instructions to setup your antivirus settings:

  1. Launch SecureAPlus > App Settings

Main-Console-Setting

  1. In the App Settings menu, click on Scan Settings, by default, Antivirus Settings tab is selected.

  1. By default Offline Antivirus, Universal AV, Real-time Scanning are all enabled.

Universal AV with no real-time protection will scan all the executable files on your machine continuously in the cloud and likewise for Universal AV with real-time protection. However, your machine will be scanned immediately for any newly installed or created executable files and when an untrusted application is being executed with real-time protection.

As Universal AV is connected to the cloud, it requires online connection but your machine will still be protected by Offline Antivirus (ClamAV) when it is not connected to the internet. Both Universal AV and Offline Antivirus are both used for real-time scanning – a persistent and ongoing scan whereby each time a file is received, opened, downloaded, copied, or modified is scanned for security risks.
