AVG antivirus is an antimalware program that protects against viruses, ransomware, spyware as well as phishing attacks and other threats. It also scans websites and detects websites that could be dangerous. It’s available for PCs and Macs as well as an app for mobile devices, including Android and iOS devices.
The antivirus software for free has all the features that you would expect from a modern antivirus scanner. It examines emails received and sent and also scans directories, files and directories for malicious code, and quarantines those who are infected. It comes with a stronger firewall than other free alternatives and lets you manage and specify rules for specific applications. It can distinguish between private and public networks to ensure a higher level of security. It also includes numerous advanced alerts, like port scan alerts, ARM spoofing alerts, and data leak protection.
AVG’s interface is simple and clean, with easily identifiable headings and thumbnails. This provides you with a quick look at what the software shields you from. It’s simple to run basic scans or any more extensive checks, however accessing other features requires navigating through a confusing menu system. AVG doesn’t have an online support line for technical issues which is a common feature with other suites.
