AVG Antivirus Review

27-09-2023 | Property Development

AVG is a popular antivirus program across the globe. It is a free program that is as effective as other antivirus software. It’s easy to setup and use, and its user interface is more functional than flashy.

It’s worth noting that although the suite includes a number of security features to guard against malware and other cyber threats, a lot of them are only available when you choose to upgrade to the premium version. AVG’s Support Center can be accessed directly from the software. It offers an online forum, a help section, community-based advice, and an online ticket submission. There’s also a dedicated phone internet building number for premium users but only during business hours.

The malware scanner utilizes machine learning and heuristics in order to identify threats that could be missed by traditional signature-based detection methods. It can detect rootkits, as well as trojans, worms as well as other sophisticated malware. It comes with an auto-scan feature that runs on autopilot and a speedy scan that does not scan files AVG recognizes as safe and a deeper scan designed to take longer, but offer more comprehensive protection.

The antiphishing technology of AVG is highly effective. It also has a firewall that can be set up in order to block certain ports or applications. It also comes with an optimization tool for devices that can remove unused apps and help speed up the PC and a photo vault which stores passwords. The anti-theft features are more advanced than those offered by some competitor programs, allowing you to mark a stolen or lost device as such and remotely monitor it using GPS. You can also remotely wipe or lock data and set up a siren when you suspect someone has stolen the device.
