This feature allows you to restrict unauthorized people from modifying the Quick Heal Internet Security Essentials settings so that your security is not compromised. It is recommended that you always keep Password Protection turned on.
Safe Mode Protection
If you run Windows in Safe Mode, your computer starts with only basic files and drivers and the security features of Quick Heal Internet Security Essentials are disabled by default. In such a situation, unauthorized users may take advantage and steal data or modify the settings of the Quick Heal Internet Security Essentials features.
To prevent access to your system by any unauthorized users, you can configure Safe Mode Protection. Once you configure it, you need to provide a password to work in Safe Mode.
Configuring Password Protection
To configure Password Protection, follow these steps:
- Open Quick Heal Internet Security Essentials.
- On the left pane, click Settings and then click Password Protection. Turn Password Protection on.
The Password Protection feature is turned off by default.
- In Enter password, enter a new password if you are setting the password for the first time, and then enter the same password in Confirm password.
If you are setting the password for the first time, then Enter old password will not be available.
- To enable safe mode protection, select Enable Safe mode protection.
- Click Save Changes.
