AVG antivirus has an easy modern interface that is easy to use. It displays the device’s current status, and provides clear messages that tell you the virus definitions that are up-to-date and if it is active. AVG scans external storage for malware and other threats. It also performs a performance tuning process to speed up your system by eliminating junk files, and improve the battery’s life.
Premium AVG plans include more powerful features that offer more security. The paid plan, for instance includes anti-ransomware to safeguard your data and files from hackers who can extort money through hacking into your device. In addition, AVG Ultimate includes web and email protection to stop attacks of phishing and spam. Additional features include a file shredder, safer banking and protection of webcams.
AVG users can take advantage of a variety of free features, including the photo vault, which stores photos in an encrypted format, and an optimization tool that cleans Android devices through the removal of junk files. A majority of the other features of AVG are only available to paid subscribers. This includes an identity protection feature that monitors leaked passwords and the ability to remotely locate a stolen phone and more sophisticated anti-theft features such as a camera trap that secretly takes a photo of any person who attempts to take the device.
AVG’s malware protection is supported by a solid track record in AV Test’s monthly tests. This includes a perfect score in the last test conducted in March and April this year.
