Original review: Oct. 10, 2020

Switched from AVG which had worked well, but wanted the extra VPN and some optimization tools included in Dome. The computer that is a fairly quick one w i7 processor and 16 GB RAM became unbearably slow after installing Dome. It was like all files or webpages had to be scanned for 30 seconds before being opened.

I then used the "premium support" included in Dome. They found one malware (being missed by Panda obviously), and then gave me a 10 min long sales talk offering me some service for an additional 300 USD for 1 Y. Did I take it - no! Did they solve the problem - no! I instead decided to remove Panda and purchase another highly rated software which is running perfectly. Panda Dome was just a waste of 70 USD. Learnings: neither did the Panda software nor their support work for me. I will stay away from it for sure.

Recommended by my computer geek, and I'm very happy with it. I've had no virus or other malware since installing. This is the free version and I have not seen the need to upgrade although that's available.

    I used one of my friend's three licenses for about two months and the conclusion is clear, look elsewhere for your cross-platform security suite needs. Panda Dome Premium is as funny as a farce comedy. The protection it offers is of infant origin and its performance is a mixture of confusion and destructive functions. Panda Dome Premium is one of the most useless applications and its place should be in the trash can. Many will disagree but all will experience the reality of need sooner or later, as long as it's not too late.

    Originally paid $800. Transferred it to my new computer, had a problem. Paid another $400 to have firewalls added for extra protection. Now 9 months later another crash and they want another $300 and no one will explain what my $1200 WAS for. Think they think they have a cash cow.

    I came across Panda Security on the internet & decided to give it a try. So far I am absolutely happy with it & will continue to use it. It does what it is supposed to do perfectly. I like that I have no problems with the software at all. It's completely safe & I haven't had any viruses since I started using it. It works great and is effective. I would recommend this to everyone.

    Panda Security was recommended by bleeping, which is a leader in malware advise, so I thought that I would try it. It was free and worked very well. It also did not slow down my computer. Panda caught a lot more viruses than other programs I had tried before. It also caught different malware than other antivirus programs that I had used.

    Panda Security is pretty good. I chose this one because of the price. Also, I have had issue with Norton and McAfee and did not want to use them at all. I like that Panda Security is easy to use and navigate through the system, it is also very good at catching things and keeping them off my computer. It is very fast when it runs the scans and easy to read the results. But it could be even easier to navigate through and faster. And although the look of the results is good, it could be more color coded to make it stand out. But overall I like this software. It does what it advertises to do and kept me safe.

    My computer is very clean and faster than before since I have Panda Security. It's not a heavy software. Rather, it's easy and has a really modern look unlike other softwares that were very complicated to use and were very big archives. However, when the software is working, it sometimes get too long to finish the job and one time my computer gets a virus.

    Most of the features from Panda Security is great. I really like that the software protects me well from active viruses and malware. And I am happy that I have instant online protection so I can browse, download and check important accounts while using it. It comes with disk cleaning tools to keep my hard drive optimized. My favorite part is that I can add safeguard to protect my child from dangerous websites. For a monthly fee I could use it on an unlimited amount of devices. However, I would improve up to date knowledge on viruses as soon as they come in and the software shuts it down.

    I have used Panda for years and have been quite satisfied with their performance. I was also able to purchase a lifetime subscription for $250 and could be moved from computer to computer. Their help desk has always been able to answer my questions. I like that Panda runs in the background and takes care of any potential problems so I can feel safer when using the internet. When it is working, I do not notice any slowdown on my computer which is a great help. But I would like it to inform me of any virus they detect so that if it came from a certain website or software, I could make the decision not to use either one anymore.
