Bitdefender Total Security 2016
A one-stop do-everything security suite

Bitdefender Total Security 2016 is the company's full-strength, no-compromise security suite, a powerful mix of antivirus, firewall, browsing protection, parental controls, anti-theft system, encryption a password manager.

It's a long list of features, but a well-designed interface means most common tasks are just a click or two away.

The big addition this time is ransomware protection. The suite monitors access to files in your main user folders (and anywhere else you like), detecting and blocking unauthorised attempts to delete or tamper with your files.

A new firewall does an even better job of protecting you from network attacks, while the extended parental controls system allows you to set up custom rules to monitor your child's behaviour, raises alerts if they try to bypass them, and can even let you know - via an Android app - if your child isn't where he's supposed to be.

There's also smarter password management, enhanced encryption, and all this can be managed from the suite's improved desktop widget.

Bitdefender's real strength comes in the protection it provides, though. AV-Comparatives' Real-World Protection tests generally place it in the top 3, but don't take our word for it - check out the latest results here.

Verdict:

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.19

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
