AVG Internet Security Review

AVG internet protection comes with an extensive set of tools to protect your computer. However, it isn’t able to differentiate itself from the other brands. The smart scan is very good, checking for a range of issues such as unsafe browser extensions as well as unsecured websites which could serve as gateways to malware. However, it falls short of rival products in other areas, for instance detecting fake websites trying to steal your information.

The program is simple to install and use with an easy-to-use interface that looks amazing on any device and performs great regardless of whether you have a touchscreen or not. The five security features that come in the full package including Computer, Web & Email, Hacker Attacks, Privacy and Payments – are grouped index together into simple categories on the main dashboard. They are further divided into sub-categories, such as security for passwords and webcams.

You can upgrade to premium phone support or TuneUp tools for a fee if you want extra features. There’s a version that has a VPN available for an additional fee.

The upselling is aggressive and regardless of the plan you choose, certain features are not available until you upgrade to a higher-end product. For instance, if you opt for the free version AVG Internet Security, you’ll be encouraged to install Google Chrome and AVG SafePrice. Check the terms and conditions before downloading any software. You could end up having something less powerful than you anticipated.
