    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.

  • Sukanya Sadhu

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

  • Lisa Santika Onggrid

    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.

  • Lisa Santika Onggrid

    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.
