The protection of the computer system is crucial for safe Internet surfing. The latest release of the My Swisscom
Assistant focuses on the topic of Internet security and offers a number of new Internet Security features. To this end,
a range of automated m2suite self-care features have been put together on a newly designed Internet & security desktop,
allowing users to monitor the security status of their computer systems and, if necessary, to improve these.
With the integration of this important and current topic in the My Swisscom Assistant, Swisscom proves its service
orientation and foresight yet again by proactively improving the users’ Internet experience.
One important innovation for this release is the new Internet security widget which is included as part of the
Internet & security desktop. This widget displays the status of the most important security components in the computer
system (firewall, anti-virus protection, security updates, etc.) clearly arranged and in real-time. For each of these
components, users can see at a glance whether the system is protected or if the security settings should be
With a single click on the displayed security status, users are guided directly to the optimisation flow, where the
status of the firewall and anti-virus programs can be checked. Here, users may also check for the latest updates that
need to be installed, thus closing any possible security gaps.
While surfing the Internet, browsers store a large amount of data (texts, images, URLs, form data, passwords, etc.)
locally on the operating system. This information makes surfing easier for the user, as the visited websites and
previously entered data are quickly available. Furthermore, they also provide insight into the surfing behavior and can
compromise users’ privacy.
This feature offers a simple and secure possibility to delete data that are no longer needed and thus protects the
user’s privacy while surfing. Upon starting the application with a click, all browsers that are installed on the system
are scanned for potentially deletable data. The results are clearly listed for each browser, enabling users to manually
select the data to be deleted via checkboxes.
The feature PC Care provides a quick and simple solution to common problems such as memory exhaustion or
decreasing computer power. It automatically seeks out unnecessary files and displays the amount of storage space
gained by deleting them. A well-structured overview allows the user to easily choose the files to be deleted.
