The software needs to be turned on in the background or it won't protect your computer at all. If you want to find additional information about the software and the way it works, I recommend visiting the official support page:

The software requires the following operating systems:

  • Windows 8.1 (32–bit and 64–bit)
  • Windows 8 (32–bit and 64–bit)
  • Windows 7 (32–bit and 64–bit)
  • Windows Vista SP1 (32–bit and 64–bit)
  • Mac OS X 10.7 or later
  • Google Android smartphones and tablets 2.3 or higher
  • iOS 5 or later
