I appreciate all the programs GOTD has brought for us over the years. But back then they brought full programs and no expiry date unless we uninstalled them.
Now 70 percent of the programs come with a time they expire such as 6 months or a year.
I would think programs like this that are so far embedded into your computer to protect you which might I add does a great job as I use to have this program but had a computer crash and lost my program would cause many problems once it expires or you uninstall it.
Maybe not I don't know but 6 moths goes by pretty fast unless your sitting in jail doing the 6 moths that it hardly makes it worth while to install.
When I saw this program being given away in my email I was quite excites as like I said does a great job but when I got here and saw once again on a giveaway that it was only for 6 months I was like really?? 6 months !
No thanks GOTD I'll pass on this one as this isn't just a small program that can be uninstalled without having to worry about any changes or things it stopped to all of a sudden start or leave a ton of corrupt files behind .

Installed on Windows 10 64 bit.

Initially the website was busy but did get code without too much hassle. Installed easily and then did its initial scan which took quite a while but it was 'silent' and in the background so not intrusive or slowing my system.

Updated the software that I asked/allowed it to, and installed a couple, again with my permission. It sits quietly in the icon area on the right of the lower tool-bar doing its thing. I tried to access a number of public domain sites during a search for some graphics. Most were fine but it blocked two telling me that they were a known risk.

All-in-all I am quite impressed with this so far, I will continue to use it and, if it is as good as it so far seems, may well buy the licence in 6 months time.

I installed, and see the program listed in the systray when I open it to customize, but nowhere else. I don't even see the icon in systray, only in the customize list, although there I set it to show both the icon and notifications. I searched through programs, and did a system search, but it's not showing up anywhere else, so I can't open it.

I'm going to try it. I wouldn't have done it had i read about the company. It's located in Copenhagen and i generally trust Danish managers. But with only 4 years of operational history and with no ''media sensation'', i'm curious. If i won't see much ''interesting'' thing, i will uninstall it. Hope it won't leave much nasty traces!

on a quick look around the vendors site I cannot find an option to buy a 6 month license for any price, therefore we are not being provided with a "FREE licensed software you’d have to buy otherwise." as we cannot buy a 6 month license "otherwise".

I did have some trouble to get a license. After several attempts there was the code.
The Setup did install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 Full Profile; nice but this software did restart Windows. Not nice.
I did install this version of Framework self and after the restart I did install the software of today.
The Setup did a download:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/5mvdvedvfz5osie/Setup-1.png?dl=0
At first I did not have a code and activated a Free version:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ngzqzi0x0a3n9z1/Activatie.png?dl=0
After installation the screen is not readable without reading glasses:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/fkv554gl4qlcf5u/Info.png?dl=0
At first there was a alert, that the computer has to be updated:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/m9i1q5ndn283cee/Openingsscherm.png?dl=0
After a while it had to be the software of others, that had to be updated:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/sv7bmzu537titf7/Settings-Patch.png?dl=0
With a code the Pro version was activated.
After that all traffic should be controlled:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/g0tm68wvbtsjvr0/TrafficAllesAan.png?dl=0
And of course I did something illegal: I did a search for Win10 Activated. Then there was of course a site with spam, malware, etc.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7siie3lpu4la20d/VreemdeSite.png?dl=0
That should be blocked.
I checked the settings and they were changing. I put the settings all green and after ten seconds(doing nothing, just looking) some of them weren't green any more:

I installed, got it running properly and ran scans using it. Now I can't find it anywhere on my computer? There are no shortcuts or files (except asking me to install it which I have already done). I click it just to check it and it says "The specified account already exists." but I can't find it. :(

A thought for Andrei from Heimdal, who's been both professional & kind enough to answer questions & comments today...

Heimdal is not AV software, so this may be irrelevant, but has Heimdal Security thought about providing a removal app, similar to what some AV companies offer for their products? I know you have something here, but I'm referring to small specialized apps that remove all traces: heimdal[.]zendesk[.]com/hc/en-us/articles/207689335-How-to-uninstall-Heimdal-CORP-silently-

Many people are not aware such programs exist, & I've rarely seen them mentioned outside of support docs, but I've always thought that knowing they could easily remove everything would entice more people to try whatever brand of security software... many people are leery of risk-free trials, because there's most always a catch, making them not risk-free at all. Anyway, just a thought.

Glad I saw the 6 month limitation. Not acceptable. Didn't install on other 22 machines.

As I have said here in the past, I received Acrobat 5 & 6 gratis--full unlimited licenses. As a result I bought Acrobat 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11, product & licenses. (Acrobat has since become bloated with a clumsy illogical user interface; needs a complete re-writing.) Some versions multiple times, some only twice. But two unlimited freebies resulted in more than 15 purchases.

If your product won't sell itself, then why bother to offer it?
If it isn't useful enough that any user will want it, why bother to write in the first place?
There's a lot of useless "security" ware out there. If Heimdal is worth having, why is the company not willing to stand behind it with full versions? If people aren't talking about it, no amount advertising will make a sales difference. Direct advertising is no longer effective.

I have this product on the machine I am using--works intermittently. It is hard to tell since there is no noticeable interaction--just skype that opens occasionally (I don't use any Microsoft crap except as absolutely necessary). Its interface doesn't add to usefulness or understanding. Today Heimdal cannot connect to the company server. Does not show up in the start menu. It may be a great product but the company's approach is out of whack. That prevents a full understanding of its value. I won't recommend a six month free license for any software.

If Heimdal had given a free lifetime license from the site I got the one that I am using, there's a good chance the other 22 machines would get the software (22 purchases). That doesn't count the 6 Apples . . . no vision.

If coders want to have a monumental life style and have unending sales, write an OS to replace Windows. It is sorely needed. Microsoft has outlived its relevance. Bozos in charge. ©2016

DoktorThomas™,

Would it be fair to people that actually buy full licenses if we were to give them away for free? I would feel somewhat deceived if I bought a $44 1-year license and the next day saw a giveaway offering such a license for free.

Anyway, thanks for your comment, your suggestion was noted.

DoktorThomas™, 22 installs isn't trying out software. That is expecting commercial software to be given away for free. Bozos in charge indeed.

Reply   |   Comment by Willam Johnson  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

Andrei from Heimdal Security, In free market econimies there is always the risk after buying now at todays price that tomorrow there might be a special offer on or even something is given away as a loss leader... It's normal!

The proper justification for not being able to offer a lifetime license in this instance is that the protection is server/cloud based and that has to be financed through ongoing subscriptions. But that does not excuse the 6 month license duration which is presented as a buyable option but it is not offered on your website, Minimum term offered is 1 year with 1 pc, no mention of 6 month licensing that I can see!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Willam Johnson, I think DT is implying if the terms were reasonable on the giveaway he'd be inclined to exercise his professional influence over the admin of 22 other machines at work to get the product purchassed and installed on those 22 machines. Of course I could be wrong but that's how I read his comment.

DoktorThomas™, Why is 6 months not long enough for you to evaluate it's features in order to make a decision to purchase?

If Microsoft were such bozos then most of the planet would not be running Windows and would prefer the already long available alternative, Linux.

DoktorThomas™, Lol I in no way can back you on your comment as it is so greedy that it makes me laugh. These programs on GOTD are for people to try and decide if it's good or bad and if you should purchase it. Not for 20 or more computers at work and I don't believe that any of the programs given away here are for any company to implement on their working computers.
They offer their programs for the normal person to try and evaluate and give feed back on how it worked or any bugs that need looking at or any suggestions to make it better.
But hey it is what it is and I guess if a person wants to put it on all the business computers then it isn't against the law or anything but I think that to me would be an abuse of a free offering and maybe that's why companies are only offering 6 moth and 1 year licenses because they lose a ton of money that is well deserved.
JMO !!

Odd installation process - once you d/l the zip file, there are 2 files within: the setup and readme.
You must follow the URL in the readme in order to get the activation code for the Pro version and from there the d/l process begins. If you just run the setup file in the zip GOTD d/l, you get the freeware basic version.

Once installed, it is basically a software updater - it will scan software installed AND, most importantly, software that you had uninstalled looking for updates. Example: I uninstalled Adobe Reader months ago and replaced it with Foxit Reader. Heimdal PRO gave me the option of installing Adobe Reader. Not good - I don't like Adobe software. Other examples are 32 bit versions of software I already have installed. If I have 64 bit, why would I want to install a 32 bit along with it?

Bottom line - I don't like software updater programs. I would rather manually update them or set software to auto update as needed. Another feature of Heimdal PRO is it blocks access to 'malicious' websites. I already have this feature in Webroot A/V

Will uninstall

Reply   |   Comment by BillyB  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

BillyB,

The installation process is GOTD's. If you were to buy the product from our website, you just have to make the payment and then get the license key & link to download installer via email & onsite.

The software updating feature will show you a list of software, from which you can select the ones you want to install or keep up-to-date through Heimdal. It will install only the apps you select, and same goes for updating.

Regarding the comparison to AVs, please note that Heimdal doesn't work that way. Heimdal doesn't only look at your browser's traffic, but all internet traffic that's communicating with your PC - think of the ads that are displayed in Skype. They're a great way for cyber criminal to open back doors to your computer and deliver malware. Heimdal will block that communication, AVs will only look at the websites you open in your browser.

No security software will ever offer you full protection, and who claims otherwise is deceiving you. That's why we recommend multi-layered protection, and Heimdal is an addition to AV protection.

Hope this helps.

Hi, thank you for being here and helping us to solve problems with downloading and registration.
Downloadid last time on GOTD, did work well, but has gone to free version a time ago. Is it possible to update to Pro version without problems now.
And to register (22 dollar) is that for lifetime, a year, or what?

Kjell, the retail price for our product is actually $44 / year, and $22 is just calculated to put a price on the 6-month licenses we're offering through this giveaway.

If you already have the FREE version installed, you don't need to reinstall it now. Just get your free key and use it in the Heimdal FREE you already have installed on your PC.

Andrei from Heimdal Security, This seems a bit light. I trialed Pro before and was surprised at how few programs it monitored... From your list above:

• Adobe Acrobat Reader - Not on my machines
• Adobe Flash Plugin - Not on my machines
• Adobe Air - Not on my machines
• Chrome - YES!
• Firefox - Not on my machines
• VLC - Not on my machines
• Microsoft Silverlight - Not on my machines
• QuickTime - Not on my machines
• Skype - Not on my machines
• Thunderbird - Not on my machines

... only Chrome is of use to me, and it auto-updates itself, so Heimdal Pro's value is really unclear to me.

This giveaway software is supposed to be for security. Heimdal Pro 2.2.0 is supposed to keep you safe from 2nd generation malware.
Quote "ransomware, financial malware, and other advanced threats that antivirus can’t block. With its powerful traffic filtering engine, its advanced malware engine and its automatic and silent software updating engine, Heimdal PRO keeps users safe from the latest cyber threats." UnQuote

Do you know what happens when you click on the URL link (provided at top of this GOTD page) to the software's home page?
Homepage:
https://heimdalsecurity.com/en/products/heimdal-pro

You have to wait a while. In the mean time your PC is redirected or connected to a long series of other places. Eventually, you are led to Heimdal home page.
They flash very fast. One of them is "marketing..." something.
One of those is reported in my PC as "Sending request to ib.adnxs.com" which is well known as a pop up malware.

Irony of an anti-malware software, first leading you to a malware before you can access their webpage.

Go ahead, all of you GOTD users. Test it out on your PC and watch the bottom left corner of your screen as the status reports of the connection process flashes. Prove to yourself that this is true.

Checked the Heimdal page, checked the links, no "malware" found. B.t.w. there is a difference between malware and tracking scripts, like google analytics and others (I did found some tracking scripts on the Heimdal page, nothing special though; GOTD and almost every major manufacturers website use some form of those).
If you keep seeing messages you don´t trust, try scanning your computer with Mbam or equal if you don´t trust Heimdal. It might be something on your computer.

Andrei from Heimdal Security,

Things sometimes go wrong...

I would have loved to activate the software (I am from Switzerland) but like David and others there is a problem.

Unfortunatly I am leaving my office for the day, and will not be able to come back later to see if it works....

Jarda025, it seems that some users are getting that error, while others have no problem in getting the license. We're currently looking into this problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Concerning NET Framework 4 and beyond...always a pain & always updating for security leaks, but needed for some programs to run. Depends on how bad you want those programs. I prefer not...LOL.

The giveaway version, as I understand from Andrei's comments, appears to be a software updater like Secunia or Hippo with security scans added, and the security functions will stop after six months leaving only an automatic updater.

I haven't checked reviews to see if it's as good an updater as Secunia and Hippo and Ninite, but I see a problem for GOTD fans with any program that automatically updates or upgrades our software since most giveaways will be annulled by upgrading and cease to work. If Heimdal overrides the "Do not check for updates" setting, we could be thoroughly screwed!

Wayne,

Heimdal PRO automatically updates security-critical software like Adobe Shockwave, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Adobe Flash Plugin, Adobe Air, Chrome, Firefox, VLC, Microsoft Silverlight, QuickTime, Skype, Thunderbird, etc. These are apps exploited by cyber criminals, and used to open back doors into users' computers.

It will not auto-update software like the ones you get from GOTD, plus you have full-control over which apps Heimdal will update.

Hope my comment helps.

So what will happen after 6 months?

Reply   |   Comment by ladygaga  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

ladygaga,

After the 6-month license expires, the product will revert to the free version, which has only the automatic & silent software updating engine active.

You will be able to re-activate the PRO version at any time, by inserting a valid license key.

Hope this helps!

Andrei from Heimdal Security,
BY " valdid license code" does it mean a new one through a purchase, or, re-entering the one received for today's GAOTD

Reply   |   Comment by gman  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

gman,

I meant entering a new one, because 6 months from now, the key obtained through this giveaway will not be valid anymore.

A quick and easy download and activation (after NET Framework 4 installation). On opening the UGI is very clean and uncluttered. However, I can't see any option to do a manual scan and Traffic Filter when turned on, turns itself off after a few seconds, don't know if this because of restrictions imposed by developer because it's a giveaway, or what. Perhaps the developer could clarify this for us. Otherwise its too early to say if it does what it claims, needs further testing.

Reply   |   Comment by Lenny  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Lenny,

Thanks for your comment.

You have the option of doing a manual scan by hovering over the tick symbol in the Overview tab - it will turn to "SCAN" when your cursor is over it.

Regarding the Traffic Filtering engine going off - no, that's not a limitation due to the giveaway, the product is full. Heimdal PRO is DNS-based and might interfere with another DNS-based software on your computer - just to be sure, please send an email to support@heimdalsecurity.com, so that my colleagues from Support can check it out.

Despite the note in the Readme file posted by GOTD, we do offer free technical support & updated during the license period.

Best,
Andrei

Andrei from Heimdal Security, Thanks very much for your reply, I've managed to figure out the Traffic Filtering issue after messing about for a bit. Nice to see the developers, taking the time to answer queries, does a lot to inspire confidence in their products. Have a good day.

I like Heimdal Pro,both the way they answered questions last time they offered the software here on GOTD and the program itself. I think it works well to my knowledge. Not often, but from time to time there is a popup that tells me they stopped threats.

Diana, what is NET Framework 4, and what does it to your PC?

Kjell, sorry I thought so because your later comment suggest that you use these SW for some time...
@Lenny: Don´t harm? It took away 2 GB (64bit-system) for nothing - no other SW on my system need it - so why should I install it only for these? Also I don´t need a tool that automatically update my programs - what these tool makes.
