Immunet doesn't always function correctly offline?

Recommended Posts

I read a Lifewire review of Immunet, it said that this security software will not function properly without an internet connect, is that true? Heres what they say: 

  • Doesn't always function correctly offline, and latent virus programs could be triggered when you disconnect from the internet.
  • Doesn’t support scheduled or offline scanning.

This lifewire article is a prime example of why you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet is actually factual! The person that wrote that article obviously didn't do their own journalistic investigation which is amateurish in my view!

"Immunet does have off-line scanning capabilities" if the ClamAV module & updates for it are enabled. ClamAV is like a traditional AV that stores malware definition signatures on your hard drive. ETHOS & SPERO are the cloud detection engines that do require an internet connection.

As you can see by the screenshot I made that I have a Scheduled Daily Flash Scan in place. So that assumption is also false.

I hope this clarifies things for you.
