This TotalAV review will give you complete details about this antivirus product. There are many bad reviews about this product. This company has two similar products with same features and price. Those are Scanguard(Over 75% discounted link) and TotalAV(Over $90 offer link). I have used their Scanguard Ultimate antivirus product for more than three months. That is similar to TotalAV Ultimate Antivirus. That gives you antivirus and tuneup features for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS.
Is TotalAV Scam or Legit?
No, it is not a scam. Of course, you may see many comments and reviews shows that it is a scam. Because it is a new company (SS Protect Limited). They are using bad promotional methods. They have got bad reviews because of below reasons.
1)They are promoting TotalAV as a free antivirus. But they don’t even have a free trial of this software. The free version only scans your PC and shows the results. If you want to remove issues, you need to buy the license.
3)They have two similar products with same features and price but with the different names. Those are Scanguard(Over 75% discounted link) and TotalAV(Over $90 offer link). I think it is not the good practice. It will also have the impact on their reputation.
4)Their initial price is very low but the renewal charges are very high. You can check below screenshot for the price details. They may change the price time to time. You can check TotalAV discount page for the current price details.
Ultimate Antivirus will give you all antivirus and tuneup features. Initially, you can buy it for $59.95. But after one year you need to pay $149.95. If you don’t keep track of your expiration period, they will automatically deduct your amount. think it is not the scam. That is their marketing strategy which most of us don’t like. Even big antivirus products give discounts for the first year and they charge heavily from the second year.
I think its price is high. Even though they are the new company, they put a high price tag.They should decrease the price. AVG Ultimate(20% discounted link) gives the same features of TotalAV Ultimate will cost you $79.99 for the first year and $99.99 from the second year onwards. AVG Ultimate will support unlimited devices while TotalAV Ultimate support only 5 devices. TotalAV charges you $149.95 while AVG charges you only $99.99. So you can understand which one to choose for your need. Panda Global Security(50% Discounted link) is also another best alternative to TotalAV ultimate.
Now let us see TotalAV features and complete review.
Note: I did not test TotalAV, but I have tested Scanguard Ultimate which works same as TotalAV ultimate. You can read my Scanguard review.
One account for all your devices. It supports Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. I have used Windows and iOS apps. It gives antivirus features for Windows, Mac, and Android. But its iOS app will not give you antivirus feature. It will give you just duplicate photo finder and battery monitor options.
Antivirus: It scans your PC for virus and removes virus as usual antivirus products. It gives Quick Scan, System Scan and real-time protection options. They have also updated their antivirus product to prevent recent Ransomware attacks like WannaCry. It works as you expects.
System Boost: You can manage to start up programs, Browser extensions and you can also uninstall apps.
DiskCleaner: option will give you options to remove duplicate files and junk files.
Web Security: option will give you Firewall and VPN service. You need to pay extra if you want to use the VPN service. They have a little number of VPN servers compare to other VPN services.
Every option works as intended. You need not worry about the performance.
Their support is also good. You can contact through Email or Live Chat. I have contacted them via live chat. They attended me quickly. I did not see any issue with the support team.
The Bad about TotalAV
1)They are the new company. Still, they did not get recognization from Microsoft. Even if you use TotalAV antivirus, you will see PC is Not protected message when you turn off Windows defender. If you turn on Windows Defender, there is a chance that both antivirus products will get conflict.
2)Initial price is less but the renewal charges are too high.
3)There is no free trial version. You must buy it even to test.
4)iOS app has no antivirus feature.

TotalAV(Over $90 discounted link) is not a scam if you want you can buy it. If you want just an antivirus product, you can go with the Essential Antivirus. If you need antivirus and Tuneup features, I recommend AVG Ultimate(20% discounted link) which is far better than TotalAV Ultimate product. You can also have look on Panda Global Security(50% discounted link).
