AVG antivirus is a modern easy-to-use interface that’s user-friendly. It provides a summary of your device’s state, with clear messages indicating the virus definitions that are current and if the virus is active. AVG also examines for malware and other dangers on external storage and also performs an enhancement of performance to speed up the system by removing unnecessary data and increasing battery life.

Premium plans from AVG offer more robust features that provide more security overall. The paid plan, for instance provides anti-ransomware protection to protect your files and data from hackers who extort cash through stealing your device. In addition, AVG Ultimate includes web and email protection to prevent attacks like phishing and spam. A file shredder is included as is a more secure banking and webcam security.

AVG users can take advantage of a variety of free features, such as a photo vault which stores images in an encoded format, as well as cleaning tools to optimize Android devices through the removal of junk files. Most of the other features offered by AVG are only available to paid subscribers. This includes an identity protection feature that checks leaks of passwords, as well as the ability to remotely locate a stolen phone, as well as more sophisticated anti-theft tools, like a camera trap that stealthily captures photos of anyone who attempts to take the device.

AVG’s strong security against malware is confirmed by a stellar record in the AV-Test monthly tests. This includes a perfect score in the most recent test that was conducted in March and April this year.
