AVG Antivirus Review
AVG is a dependable tool with a wide range of features, good security against malware and excellent performance in numerous tests. The free version has a few drawbacks, and the premium version has more features like the device optimization tool and VPN.
The malware scanner in the software utilizes machine learning and heuristics in order to identify and eliminate any potential threats including trojans rootkits and Cryptojackers. It also protects you against ransomware-related attacks, phishing, and suspicious websites. AVG’s smart scans are fast as well as thorough. They present a variety of “advanced issues” that you can solve right now, such as securing items that require protected by passwords, a vulnerable webcam or an insecure firewall. It’s more invasive than other top antivirus software in this respect. If you click on one of these issues, it will prompt you buy the paid version.
The tests by AV-Test are generally top-quality and it was able to detect and protected against all malware during the March and April 2022 tests. However its ability to detect zero-day attacks isn’t as good as some of the other top-rated products I’ve tested, and it may slow the system.
The free version offers security for email and the web Identity theft monitoring of passwords that were leaked Photo vaulting, and AVG Cleaner, which can speed up your device by eliminating junk data. The premium version comes with webcam security and protection against ransomware and secure banking and a firewall. It also includes a performance tuning feature that speeds up your computer and increases battery life, as well as an VPN for privacy online.
