AVG Antivirus Review
AVG is a great option for cyberthreat protection, with near-perfect malware detection scores and an extensive feature set. It also has one of the most effective firewalls I’ve ever tested an effective web and email scanner as well as powerful features for optimizing your device. However, it isn’t equipped with parental controls and reliable ransomware protection. It is also known to slow down performance, especially on computers with lower performance.
The free version of AVG offers basic malware protection however it doesn’t come with an online or firewall scanner. The basic plan offers an extensive array of features. On the other hand, premium plans come with useful tools like a system tune-up tool and a VPN.
The mobile applications of AVG offer exclusive features that aren’t available in the desktop version. Android apps, for example can remotely lock and wipe a phone in the check it out event it gets lost. It also has a photo vault where you can store all your personal photos and videos safely. It also comes with an anti-theft feature that allows you to track the location of your phone and make it sound an alarm.
AVG’s user-friendly interface features clear thumbnails and headings to assist you in navigating its many features. In the settings menu, you can adjust the sensitivity of your scan and add or remove file formats from the scan. You can also turn on advanced options such as shredding and deep scanning after they have been scanned.
