AVG antivirus provides an intuitive modern and contemporary interface that’s easy to use. It provides the device’s current status, and provides clear messages indicating the virus definitions that are up to date and if it is active. AVG also checks for malware and other threats to storage devices, as well as performs the performance tuneup to improve the speed of your system by removing unwanted data and improving the battery’s life.
AVG’s premium packages offer more powerful features that offer more security. The paid plan, for example, offers anti-ransomware to protect your data and files from hackers who steal money by hijacking your device. In addition, AVG Ultimate includes web and email protection to stop attacks of phishing and spam. Additional features include a file shredder, safer banking and protection against webcams.
AVG users can take advantage of a variety of free features, such as the photo vault, which stores photos in an encrypted format, and a cleaner to optimize Android devices by removing junk files. Many of the other features of AVG are only available to paid subscribers. This includes an identity-protection feature that detects leaks of passwords and the ability to remotely locate a lost device, as well more advanced antitheft tools such as camera traps that secretly captures photos of anyone attempting to steal the device.
AVG’s protection against malware is backed by a solid track record in AV Test’s monthly tests. This includes a perfect score on the most recent test, which was conducted in March and April of this year.
