What is spyware?

Spyware is a type of malicious software (malware) designed to track a user’s online activity and gather information. Examples include keylogging programs, which can collect passwords, account numbers, PIN numbers and Social Security numbers as users enter them on the keyboard.

You can get spyware on your computer through “shareware” or free programs, or via websites with popup messages inviting you to download software.

Why you need spyware protection

Spyware is intended to steal valuable information without your knowledge. Spyware can be used to scan files on your hard drive, obtain information from websites you visit and steal passwords or account numbers as you enter them.
