AVG antivirus comes with a modern easy-to-use interface that’s easy to use. After launching, it displays an overview of your device’s security status. The information is clear and will inform you if the program’s virus definitions are current and up to date and if the security package is in active. AVG will scan your external storage for malware, and other threats. It also performs performance tuning to speed up your system through the elimination of junk files and extending battery life.
Premium plans from AVG include more robust features that provide an enhanced security experience. The paid plan, for example offers anti-ransomware, which protects your files and data from hackers who steal money through stealing your device. In addition, AVG Ultimate includes web and email protection to guard against attacks from phishing and spam. A file shredder can be found as is a secure banking and webcam protection.
AVG users can take advantage of a range of free features, including a photo vault that stores photos in an encrypted format, as well as cleaning tools to optimize Android devices by removing junk files. The majority of other features offered by AVG are available only to paid subscribers. This includes an identity protection feature that checks leaks of passwords and allows you to remotely locate a stolen phone as well as more sophisticated anti-theft tools, like camera traps that secretly snaps a picture of any stranger who attempts to steal the device.
AVG’s security against malware is backed by a stellar record in AV Test’s monthly tests. This includes a perfect score in the most recent test, which was conducted in March and April of this year.
