AVG internet security comes with an impressive suite of tools for keeping your computer secure, however it’s difficult to distinguish itself from other security software. The smart scan is very excellent, and it can detect many issues, such as unsafe browser extensions, as well as unsecure websites that could be gateways to malware. It’s weak in certain areas, for example, detecting fake websites that attempt to steal your personal information.
The software is easy to install and use with a simple interface that looks stunning on any device and works well regardless of whether or not you have a touchscreen or not. The five protections included in the full package – Computer web and email, Hacker attacks, Privacy and Payments – are put into basic categories. They are further broken down into smaller categories such as webcam protection and password protection.
You can upgrade to premium phone support or TuneUp tools for a small fee for additional features. There’s even one that includes an VPN for an extra fee.
The selling of products is quite aggressive, regardless of which plan you choose, certain features are not available unless you upgrade to a better product. If you choose the free version AVG Internet Security is available, you are urged to install Google Chrome or AVG SafePrice. Check the terms and conditions before downloading any software. You may get something that is not as powerful as you thought.
