AVG Internet Security Review

Published in 25 de setembro de 2023 by

AVG internet protection comes with a comprehensive set of tools to protect your computer. It is however, struggling to distinguish itself from other programs. The smart scan is good, checking for several issues such as unsafe browser extensions as well as unsecured web pages that could be used as gateways to malware. It’s not as good in certain areas, such as detecting fake sites that try to take your personal information.

The software is simple to install and use. It features a simple interface that looks stunning on any device. It works well regardless of whether you’re using a touch screen or not. The five security features included in the total package – Computer email, Web and Emails, Hacker attacks, Privacy and Payments – are put into basic categories. These are further broken down into sub-categories, such as password protection and webcam protection.

You can upgrade to premium support for your phone or TuneUp tools for a fee for features you would like to add. There’s even a version which includes the option of a VPN for a small cost.

The upselling is ad-hoc, and no matter which plan you select certain features will not be available until you upgrade to a higher-end product. For instance, if you opt for the free version of AVG Internet Security, you’ll be encouraged to install Google Chrome and AVG SafePrice. It is important to check the terms and conditions of any software you download because you may end up with a program that has far less capability than you initially thought.
