How trustable Crystal Security is?

Aibek Esengulov

Are you seeing some Warning notices from your antivirus program? It’s very likely to be a false positive, refer to the comment below.

Crystal Security needs download. I thought it’s an online scanner.

Aibek Esengulov

That’s correct, it’s an online scanner but in order to be able to run it you still need to download the file (you don’t have to install it though). You also need active internet connection for it to work.

Lisa Santika Onggrid

Ok, I see. I thought it would be purely done from the browser.

Sukanya Sadhu

when i hide a comment then if i click on show, it doesn’t work correctly.

Aibek Esengulov

works fine on my end. what browser do you use?

Christine

I went to download Crystal Security and my virus scanner stated it seemed malicious. By chance did you download and test this product? Do you know if it is safe and only “seems” malicious?

Thank you :)

Saikat Basu

Christine, it is a false positive flag. Crystal Security is very much a legititmate product. If you Google the name with “false positve”, you will see that explained and cleared.

Christine

Thank you very much.
