Panda Safe Browser is based on multiple layers of protection that minimize the risk of an infection from the web to only a theoretical, almost impossible, chance.
So, an attacker should have to be aware of this and bypass at least four elaborate levels of security even before arriving to your PC, where with the help of the most advanced Panda Security technologies (that, alone, have several more layers of protection) you would be completely shielded from that very slight possibility of attack. Nothing is 100% safe, but Panda Safe Browser brings you much closer to that!
How can Panda Safe Browser protect my privacy?
Normally, Panda Safe Browser runs entirely on the system memory, not saving anything in your hard drive, not even temporarily. Every time you close the program, all the files and data used during the browser session are discarded. When the program is started again, it has no memory from its last use.
This means that no cookies, cached images, saved form data or other traces of your activities will be available to be recovered. In this sense, the program is 100% private. But keep in mind that your online activities still can be recorded by your Internet service provider or by any online service in which you identify yourself (i.e. if you login to a site using Panda Safe Browser, that site will still be able to save all of your steps on it while you do not close the program, even if you logout).
Can I use Panda Safe Browser to access financial sites, e]banking or online shops 100% safe?
Panda Safe Browser was designed to protect you from threats that come from the Internet during web browsing, not the contrary. Although the program has some safeguards that lower significantly this possibility, if your computer is already infected with malware it might be possible that your financial details can be stolen.
It's strongly advisable to use Panda Safe Browser together with a best-of-breed antimalware protection, like the security suites of the 2011 Panda Consumer range. If you use Panda Safe Browser and the last Panda Security protection, based on the award-winning Collective Intelligence, you can use the Internet with total peace of mind.
Panda Safe Browser depends on technology from Mozilla Firefox, one of the most used browsers in the world, which can handle virtually any site. However, there are still some sites optimized to specific browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer) or that do not follow the most recent standards, and that can show some small graphical glitches in Panda Safe Browser. This is normal and most of the times do not affect the browser experience significantly. Also, some non-western characters may not be supported.
The performance of Safe Browser depends on the speed of your computer. Because it's basically a virtual machine, it uses more resources than a normal browser (but it's much more secure than one). Most of the computers less than 2 or 3 years old will handle normal browsing in the program with an acceptable performance, but only the most recent hardware may be able to play multimedia files without any hiccups. Anyway, it's always recommended to close all programs when using Panda Safe Browser.
Limitations: Panda Save Browser makes the use of VirtualBox, which will be downloaded and installed on your system. No screenshot available, we were unable to capture a screenshot in virtual mode and transfer to current operating system.
