Absolutely not. Tech Home was built with your security and privacy as first priority. All the updates, scanning and protection happen from your computer and nothing is sent to us outside of the reporting statistics, which are made fully available to you on our reporting website and through our monthly e-mail summary. The only time we have access to your machine is when you explicitly grant it to us during your use of the remote installation or remote support request. Even then we require that you put in a one time use code that allows your computer to connect to our operation center granting us permission to assist you.
No, Tech Home service will provide you with everything you need to safely navigate the Internet and effectively and efficiently use your computer.
No, the value of this service is that it applies all updates and runs all of its various scans behind the scenes without you having to worry.
No, if you happen to have your computer off at the time the program runs its various scanning processes and updates, they will automatically run the next time that you turn your computer on.
You will receive a monthly e-mail detailing the activities that have been executed by your Tech Home software. In addition, you can check the online reports anytime, which are updated every 24 hours.
Since our service never contacts your computer, and the vast majority of firewalls are designed to block INCOMING traffic, this software is compatible with 99+% of all firewalls.
Changes to the default settings are not required for the firewall to operate. However, users who feel comfortable with modifying settings have that capability.
By default, all of your subscribers will get put into the “Internet zone” in which all outbound communication is allowed and all inbound communication is blocked.
Our firewall should be compatible with other firewalls that your subscribers have installed on their machines. If your subscribers would like to use their own firewalls and disable ours, they have the option to do so.
In the very unlikely case that you do get a virus or spyware threat on your computer that materially affects its performance or damages it in some way, we will do our best to remove the problem at no cost AND give you a free month’s service as well.
