Panda product always needs internet connection for protection? And good for online gaming?

Post by SuspiciousFile » Fri, 15 Jul 2016, 12:01

Hi,

Panda always is tested fine, upperst ranks no matter where tested, we do not need to talk about that )

But, maybe "but" ...protection only works when stable internet connection is given?

Read that at a testing site, so if provider or machine has any problems, there is no protection unless internet is stable again, no offline protection, cloud ALWAYS needed? Is this right?

And as it always uses the cloud, not sure if i am calculating right:

Playing online games might be fun due to small footprint but also might be worse becuase online playing cloud of panda always sends and receives data packets to protect and makes it not that smart connected/performant while gaming (online)?

Asking this for either the paid or free version, as not sure if there is a difference in the products.

Thanks for an answer and keep up the good work.)

I also have the same doubt. Is Panda completely cloud based?

This is a problem both for free panda antivirus and cloud cleaner. The requested scans go about their merry way at full speed with or without a working internet connection. Even setting the block files from running ... has no effect on a requested scan. What is needed is a way to set these processes to suspend with a visual message when there is no return from the internet within a specified time.
