How does Watchdog work?

Watchdog IT Support works by looking after your computer 24/7, all year round. It it designed to automatically seek out problems, fix any that crop up, and always be proactively enhancing your machine.


Question Mark

Watchdog: Check

Watchdog has an automatic scan feature meaning it will constantly check your computer for issues. It looks for everything from hardware faults, and checks for software updates, whilst also remaining alert to possible security threats.


Watchdog: Fix & Protect

After a scan, Watchdog will automatically begin fixing any issues on your computer to get it back working at full speed again. Watchdog downloads and installs any updates to not only keep software as it should but to also protect against malicious cyber threats.

Remote Desktop

Watchdog: Remote Access

If something happens and you need to repair your computer, traditionally this means you have to go to your local computer repair shop. This process is time consuming and can be costly. Watchdog IT Support offers remote access support, which means that one of our experienced technicians can fix your computer through a secure internet connection.

Don’t worry

It is completely understandable that you may be skeptical when you hear that someone can connect to their machine, even if it is to fix a problem. With Watchdog, our technicians our technicians will connect through a highly secure connection. We will never and are not permitted to connect to your computer unless given explicit consent by you to do so.
