Panda Free Antivirus Review 2019

If you go back to the second half of 2016, however, the picture is a little different. Panda stopped only 99 percent of zero-day malware in November of that year, 96.2 percent in August and 98.8 percent in July. The program did stop 100 percent of zero-days in December, September and October, but we'd rather see consistency.
Panda's ability to stop widespread malware was not perfect either in 2016. Panda didn't get any 100 percent scores in that category over those six months, with rates ranging from 99.5 percent (meh) to 99.8 percent (not terrible).

That dragged down Panda's six-month average to 98.9 percent, behind those of all the other free antivirus programs except Windows Defender, which averaged 98.4 percent. Panda also racked up 21 false positives over that period, far worse than the rest of the programs, except for, again, Windows Defender, which had a whopping 41.
The most useful extra feature provided by Panda Free Antivirus is the VPN client and service, which provides up to 150MB a day of secure communications. You can choose where to connect to but not the connection protocol used.
