AVG Internet Security Review
AVG internet protection offers an extensive set of tools to protect your computer. However, it has a difficult time to stand out from the competition. The smart scan is efficient, detecting a range of issues like unsafe browser extensions and unsecure web pages that could act as gateways to malware. However, it falls short of the other products from competitors in other areas such as detecting fake websites trying to take your information.
The software is easy to install and use with simple interface that looks amazing on any device, and works well regardless of whether or not you have a touchscreen or not. The five security features included in the entire package – Computer web and email, Hacker attacks, Privacy and Payments – are put into basic categories. These are also broken down into sub-categories such as password protection and webcam protection.
You can upgrade to premium phone support or TuneUp tools for a small fee for additional features. There’s even a version that comes with an VPN for a small cost.
The upselling process is quite aggressive and, regardless of which plan you choose, some options are not accessible unless you upgrade to a higher-tier product. If you choose the free version of AVG Internet Security will prompt you to install Google Chrome or AVG SafePrice. Review the terms and conditions before downloading any software. You may end up with something that is not as powerful as you thought.
