Cyber security is a buzzword these days, especially as more people are working from home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The problem is: how do non-technicians understand what they need and how well they are protected? A lot of cybersecurity suites use jargon like VPN, phishing, adware, or malware. A new to the game, Clario, wants to end all the confusion. Clario makes it easy to protect your digital security and privacy on your iPhone. But how good is he at what he does? Let’s take a look.
Getting started with Clario on iPhone
Once you’ve installed Clario from the App Store and launched the software, it’s easy to get started. Just tap Create Account, agree to the legal disclosures, and tell Clario what name to call you.
Then you provide your email address and create a strong password. You’ll get a 7-day trial, but after that you’ll pay for your subscription ($ 14.99 per month or $ 98.99 per year until August 15). Your subscription covers up to three devices and Clario is available on iOS, Android, and macOS.
Your digital security starts with your email
Perhaps the first step to take is to register all your e-mail addresses in Clario. The service works 24/7 behind the scenes, monitoring your email addresses to make sure your passwords are not leaked. If any of your email passwords can be found in the wild, Clario alerts you to the breach and helps you take appropriate action to protect your identity.
Use Clario to keep your browsing private
Without you knowing it, your ISP can track every page you visit. With private browsing, however, using Clario’s VPN service this problem is solved. Once activated, which is easy to do directly from the Clario application, your Internet service provider cannot spy on your browsing.
One obstacle that some people face when using a VPN is losing access to some of their favorite sites. Netflix and Prime Video, for example, can block you. With Clario, you can set the location from which to view navigation. This way, you can always access the sites and content you want, wherever you are or have private browsing turned on.
Stop annoying ads and pop-ups
Finally, Clario’s ad blocker can help you bypass those annoying ads and pop-ups that you come across while browsing the internet. It works great to block these annoyances in Safari. Again, the functionality is straightforward, easy to understand, and easy to use. Even though we’ve learned that Safari users are not as valuable to advertisers as others, ads and pop-ups can still be quite irritating.
Unfortunately, these are the only services offered in the iOS and Android apps. You cannot, for example, monitor your bank credentials or credit cards from the mobile app.
Get help or answers to your questions
Clario employs more than 600 security experts, available on demand at any time. From your iPhone, all you have to do is type at the bottom of the app where it says “Hey! How can we help? ”In a matter of minutes, if not less time, you’ll be connected with a real, live person, not a chatbot. Apparently, live people still exist behind the scenes of the apps and services we use. less, some of them.
