25 Oct AVG Antivirus Review
AVG antivirus is an antimalware software that guards against viruses spyware, ransomware attacks, phishing attacks, and other threats. It also scans websites and finds links that may be harmful. It is available for Macs and PCs, as well as an application for mobile devices, such as Android and iOS devices.
The antivirus software for free offers most of the features you expect from a modern virus scanner, which includes real-time protection that checks the received and sent emails, scans files and directories for malware and quarantines any infected files. It has a more robust firewall than other free alternatives and lets you manage and specify rules for specific applications. It distinguishes between public and private networks to apply a distinct level of security. It also provides a variety alerts, such as data leak protection portscan alerts, data leak protection, and ARM warnings for spoofing.
AVG’s tools for performance tuning can aid in speeding up your computer and clear out junk files and extend battery life. It also keeps software up-to-date to prevent them from becoming outdated and vulnerable to vulnerabilities. The premium editions of AVG antivirus include additional features, like safer banking or an VPN which encrypts web browsing.
The interface of AVG is simple and clean, with clear headings and thumbnails. This provides you with an overview of what the program shields you from. It’s easy to start a basic scan or other more extensive checks, however accessing other features requires an ambiguous menu system. It’s also a bit disappointing that AVG doesn’t offer a technical telephone support line as is the norm for other suites.
