      Some apps will use your computer to mine for crypto in the background. Take Norton Antivirus, for example. It adds crypto mining to your device. Thus, it’s taking a cut of the earnings while you’re browsing the web.

      Chad from Lexington, Kentucky wants to do something about this. He doesn’t like the fact that Norton users have to opt into the miner before using the program.

      1. Once you allow Norton to run the miner on your computer, it’s hard to opt out of the function.
      2. You can disable the mining — but you can’t remove the module completely.
      3. Plus, Norton takes complete control of the setting’s thresholds.

      Oh, and Norton explains at the bottom of its Q&A page that it charges users like Chad a 15% “coin mining fee.”

      I told Chad that he was better off switching to an antivirus program that won’t install a crypto miner. I recommended my sponsor, TotalAV.

      1. TotalAV’s industry-leading security suite is easy to use and offers the best protection in the business.
      2. In fact, they’ve received the renowned VB100 award for detecting more than 99% of malware samples for the last three years in a row.
      3. Basically, you get continuous protection from the latest threats. Plus, its AI-driven Web Shield browser extension automatically blocks dangerous websites.

      Plus, TotalAV’s Junk Cleaner can help you quickly clear out your old files.

      Right now, get an annual plan of TotalAV Internet Security for only $19 at ProtectWithKim.com. That’s over 85% off the regular price, just for my readers and listeners!
