For AOL members on the Basic Dial-Up or Support Plus plans, we've partnered with a leading name in online security to help protect you, your family and your PC.

  • Virus protection that guards your whole PC
  • Spyware protection to block potentially unwanted programs
  • A firewall to help keep hackers out.

Since it's automatically on-guard and up-to-date, it helps protect you against today's attacks and tomorrow's threats, too.

Buying this protection yourself could cost as much as $39.99, but as an AOL member on the Basic Dial-Up or Support Plus plan, you receive this comprehensive set of safety tools at no additional charge.
