AppCheck Anti-Ransomware
Detect and block unknown ransomware

AppCheck Anti-Ransomware is a tool which monitors processes for ransomware-type behaviour, blocking any threat it finds.

The program also includes a file protection component which automatically backs up files before they can be encrypted, enabling AppCheck to undo most damage. (These backups are held in a special driver-protected "RansomShelter", ensuring they can't be encrypted as well.)

All this happens automatically, and without you having to do anything at all. AppCheck does have a simple interface which you can access from a system tray icon, but you may never need to use it. The system is essentially "set and forget".

Perhaps because of this simplicity, the program has no significant local documentation. There is some information online, though, and you'll find it here.

AppCheck's free version detects and blocks ransomware, but you'll need the Pro version (priced from $11 a year) to remove it. This also includes MBR protection, shared folder protection, scheduled backups, premium support and more.

Verdict:

Simple and apparently effective anti-ransomware which you can run alongside your existing security software.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.71

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.

What's New in Version 2.18.71

- Group admins can now choose to allow only admins to send messages to a group. Open "Group Info" > tap "Group Settings". Non-admins will still be able to read messages and respond privately by tapping "Message Admin".
- You can now easily notify people when you change your phone number. Tap "Settings" > "Account" > "Change Number". You can select which contacts or chats you would like to notify.
