It is up to you

It is really up to you. It is not a required program. I do not know if you get anything extra as far as security goes.

I do use it however I am using for "fun" as I can see what I typed is 'encrypted' to. It looks like a little kid typing random stuff in notepad. each letter is changed to a random letter that is not the one you typed.

This will not help you if you type your credit card info on a fake anti-malware site. So you will have to be careful on the site you are typing on. Also the sites you go to. You are your own worst security threat.
