avg antivirus review

AVG provides a full feature set and a near-perfect malware detection score. It also has one of the most effective firewalls I’ve ever tried, a reliable web and email scanner and a powerful device optimization features. However, it isn’t equipped with parental controls and reliable ransomware security. It is also known to bog down performance, particularly on computers that aren’t as powerful.

The free version of AVG provides basic malware protection but does not include an online or firewall scanner. The basic plan includes a more robust set features, while premium plans include useful extras such as an upgrade of your system and VPN.

As an added bonus, AVG’s mobile apps include unique features that aren’t found in the desktop program. Android apps, for example allows you to remotely erase and lock a phone in case it is lost. It also provides an image vault that lets you store all your personal photos and videos safely. Its anti-theft tool is good too, allowing you to track your phone’s location and then sound a siren.

The user-friendly interface of AVG uses familiar thumbnails and headings to guide you through its numerous features. In the settings menu you can customize the scan sensitivity and add or remove formats from the scan. You can also turn on advanced options such as shredding and deep scanning after they have been examined. You can also modify pop-up notifications, set what data is shared with AVG and enable the “do not disturb” mode to allow full-screen gaming or video-watching.
