    Review Secunia PSI

    Are you tired of messages from different programs installed on your computer that newer versions are available? Of course, many of us never take the time to update all the applications stored on the PC, and that is why this time, we want to talk about a service that puts an end to these warnings and alerts.

    This is Secunia PSI, a utility that has been developed precisely thinking about those users who have a lot of programs installed on their computers and do not have enough time or motivation to update them by themselves. The essential thing in this type of case is that this application reviews all those we have, indicating which ones can be updated.

    Secunia PSI, whose acronym stands for Personal Software Inspector, is an entirely free program as long as it is for personal and home use for computers with the Windows operating system, which examines in detail all the contents on your PC, especially working with the software, so, after a thorough review of your disks, it will be able to show you a list of all the installed applications that have newer versions that you should install as soon as possible.

    Of course, the need to use such a tool arises from an earlier question related to the question that many users may ask themselves about the rush to install program updates. Well, in the first instance, it is essential always to have the latest versions for a question of available functions. Still, more than anything else, the developers work on each update to offer more secure environments, something we should not lose sight of in any way.

    For this reason, in general, we could even recommend the installation of Secunia PSI to users who are somewhat obsessive about the security of their systems rather than those who want to have new features in their previously installed programs. Once you have updated all your applications with Secunia PSI, you can be sure that services such as Java, Flash, or Adobe Reader will be much further away from allowing malicious software.

    When we start Secunia PSI, we find it has two main modes: Simple and Advanced. In the first one, we start the analysis, and it will show us the applications to install and the links to do so. In the second one, several additional tools are added, such as the possibility of modifying aspects of the configuration of the applications that we can update.

    It also has a section as a History, thanks to which we can review all the updates we have installed on the computer, how long it has been since we updated some particular software, and many other data.

    You will have seen, then, that the similarities between this program and Windows Update are notorious. The truth is that just like the more straightforward service offered by the people at Microsoft, this one also allows us to set alerts. That way, if you have all your applications installed and updated and a new version becomes available, you will receive a message that will alert you so that you don't lose sight of it.

    On the other hand, the user interface of Secunia PSI is excellent. It is not too flashy but relatively simple, but this is attractive because it allows you to see the list of applications that are being updated or should be updated and the progress of the processes that are kept open. Functional could be the word that best describes the design of this application, and that is something that, without a doubt, we like.

    If we have to detail some positive aspects of Secunia PSI, we must start with the fact that it is a handy tool, but it also consumes very few system resources, so it is as light as it is simple. It can even perform most of the background updates without causing inconvenience. And above all, it is compatible with almost any software we may have previously installed on our PC.

    Then, something curious happened to us: when we wanted to analyze the negative aspects of Secunia PSI, we concluded that there are none because it is simple, functional, efficient, and easy to use, even for novice users. If you usually read our reviews, you will know that we usually mention aspects we do not like about the applications, so here we surrender to the evidence of an outstanding program with no weak points.

    For all the reasons mentioned above, we are sure that Secunia PSI is one of those applications that should not be missing on the computer of any user who wants to be protected against the possible entry of malware. Keeping your programs updated is the best way to prevent the entry of malicious software. When performing this task automatically, this is one of the best-recommended applications.
