AVG antivirus is a modern user interface that is simple and user-friendly. It provides the device’s current status, and provides clear messages that inform you the virus definitions that are current and if the virus is active. AVG will scan your external storage for malware and other threats. It also performs performance tuning that speeds up your system through the elimination of junk files, and improve the battery’s life.
Premium plans from AVG include more robust features to provide the best security experience. The paid plan, for instance provides anti-ransomware protection to protect your data and files from hackers who steal money through stealing your device. Furthermore, AVG Ultimate includes web and email protection to prevent attacks like phishing and spam. Additional features include a file shredder, safer banking, and protection of webcams.
Some of the free features available to AVG users is a photo vault which stores photos in encrypted format, and cleaning tools that help optimize Android devices by removing unnecessary files. Many of the other features of AVG are available only to paid subscribers. This includes an identity protection feature that tracks leaks of passwords and allows you to remotely locate the stolen phone as well as more sophisticated anti-theft tools, like a camera trap that secretly takes a photo of anyone who attempts to steal the device.
AVG’s malware protection is backed by a stellar record in AV Test’s monthly tests. This includes a flawless result in the most recent test that was conducted between March and April of this year.
