AVG Antivirus Review
AVG is a reliable choice for cyberthreat protection. It comes with a dazzling feature suite, excellent malware protection scores, and a reasonable price. There were some negative aspects, like it being heavy on system resources and several false positives.
The interface of AVG is clear and straightforward. Its dashboard lets you know whether your computer is safe and lets you perform a manual scan using its menu. You can personalize the notifications and scans. You can also white-list or black-list applications and decide what data AVG will give to its parent company. AVG includes a variety of additional tools, like shredders for documents and a mode of no disturbance which prevents you from getting disturbed when playing games or watching films.
Security features include a password manager, as well as a firewall. It also comes with an antivirus scanner. Its anti-phishing protection is excellent, and its Enhanced Firewall offers additional features such as data leakage security and ARM Spoofing Alerts. The firewall is especially robust on public networks because it utilizes machine learning to learn what is normal and what isn’t and can then adapt automatically.
AVG provides a range of support options, such as a forum, online community and a vast Knowledge Base. You can also reach out to its customer service via email or through a chat feature on its website. The free version doesn’t come with annoying upgrade prompts however you’ll have to endure pop-up ads when using the software.
