ScanGuard Antivirus Pro review, manual and guides

by Tomas Statkus - -

ScanGuard is a security and optimization tool developed by a new company called ScanGuard. There is not much information about it and some users also think that the software is a malicious program. Even though Microsoft does not recognize the antivirus and that can lead to conflicts with Windows Defender, ScanGuard is actually a legitimate application that is capable of protecting your devices.[1]

Scanguard Antivirus Pro Review
ScanGuard Antivirus does not include free trial, however, users get a 30-day money back guarantee. ScanGuard provides users with three types of antivirus versions, including ScanGuard Essential Antivirus that starts at $99.95 a year which covers up to three devices, ScanGuard Antivirus Pro – $119.95 and the most expensive tier that costs $149.95 per year – ScanGuard Ultimate Antivirus. The application would be a great solution for those who look for protection for the entire family across multiple devices.

ScanGuard installation is very quick and easy. Once downloaded, the antivirus program will perform a free smart scan which will reveal malware, PUAs, privacy concerns and provide users with information and recommendations. It is worth to mention that only paid version will be available to actually remove the detected threats.

Test Results

Antivirus protection

ScanGuard Antivirus does not provide its software to any independent testing labs, such as AV-TEST or AV-Comparatives, so the antivirus protection is unknown. The application provides users with two types of scans that include a quick scan which checks the most important and vulnerable parts of the system and a full scan. The antivirus defenses detect and quarantine adware, malware, spyware and other cyber threats that aim to infect your system.

SafeGuard Antivirus also protect users while browsing the internet. It secures against cyber threats, phishing and malicious websites that target to steal user data.


ScanGuard Antivirus does not only provide users with antivirus defenses and web browsing security features but also includes optimization features, that Enhances the device Performance by identifying specific error and applications that can have an impact on computer speed; Browsing Performance features that improve internet browsing speed by managing unwanted caching and old history. ScanGuard also can boost your memory by locating and removing files with duplicate characteristics. In addition, what we really liked is that ScanGuard focuses on providing advanced privacy features such as Two-Way Firewall protection that prevents unauthorized access to private data; Identity-theft protection which keeps tabs on personal and sensitive information, and a VPN service, which protects users while posting on social media, shipping or banking online.

The security suite also comes with licenses for macOS, Android, iOS, Blackberry, Chrome OS and Amazon fire devices.

System-performance impact and scans

ScanGuard Antivirus does not seem like slowing down any system performance in any way. Customer reviews also indicate that the software does not have a negative impact on the computer during scans. The scans takes an average 30 to 40 minutes. As it was mentioned before, ScanGuard is a very new player in the market, so any reputed independent testers have not reviewed the application yet.

User interface

ScanGuard has a very intuitive and well-designed interface. The application is easy to use and does not interfere with any of your devices’ experience. The ScanGuard’s dashboards display users any threats on the device and quarantined icons which are ready to delete. All the features are easily accessible and can be activated with a single click.


ScanGuard provides users with live chat and email customer support. The response times are great. Users can also check on the website that provides information how to fix a range of most common problems. However, phone calls only limited for billing issues.

The final verdict

ScanGuard Antivirus is a brand new antivirus package that provides antivirus protection, privacy, and optimization features. In fact, the application is one of the most privacy-focused antivirus packages in the market. The program also has a clean and intuitive interface which is also very easy to use and works across all devices, including Mac and iOS. However, ScanGuard has not been tested by any reputed independent testing agencies so it is hard to evaluate the application’s antivirus protection.
