Google is offering free tools to help prevent the spread of ransomware, including a free anti-malware tool that will automatically scan and remove malicious files from your computer’s hard drive.
The free tool, dubbed Ransom-Proof, will scan the computer’s files for viruses and other malicious files and warn you if you have been infected by ransomware, or if you may have been one of the thousands of users affected by the malware.
The tool will also scan your local computer for known malware, or use a free tool to automatically scan your hard drive for malware.
Ransom-proof will scan your files for ransomware and other files and warns you if the file or folder you’re about to open contains a file that contains a virus.
Ransomware is the type of malicious software that infects computers or networks, encrypts files and then encrypts the files, encrypting the data in the process.
The malware then demands payment to continue.
It’s not yet clear how long Ransom, a free utility offered by Google, will stay in your computer.
Google told TechCrunch that it will keep it up-to-date with new ransomware-detection software and will let users know if it detects a new threat.
The company said the tool is designed to detect and block the spread and spread of threats.
It says the tool will not automatically scan files and that it may require a few hours or days to run.
It’s not clear how many people might benefit from the free tool.
“We are committed to ensuring our products are secure, secure in their use and safe for the people they are designed to protect,” Google said in a statement.
“To that end, we have launched an offer to anyone who has already downloaded and installed Ransom Protect on their device to get a free trial of the free anti, ransomware and virus scanner.”
Google said the free version of RansomProtect will not contain a download link.
The paid version will, however, include an additional security tool that warns you of the presence of malware and a warning that you may need to pay to continue using the tool.
The offer runs for two weeks, or until Google says it’s satisfied with the results.
