These days, no computer should be without baseline virus protection. That’s where AVG Antivirus comes in. But how much does “free” really get you and is AVG Antivirus enough to protect your personal information from the hands of a malicious attacker? Let’s take a look and find out if AVG offers the coverage you are looking for!

????Reliability & Security
• Malware protection - AVG Antivirus creates several layers of protection that malware must breach to get access to your system. At the top layer, it blocks suspicious programs. If malicious software breaches that first layer of protection, AVG Antivirus performs a thorough scan of the suspicious software before deleting it.
• Ransomware detection - AVG Antivirus offers advanced firewalls that protect your computer against ransomware, a popular form of malware that encrypts your files and then holds them for “ransom” in exchange for a payment. Note, however, that AVG Internet Security has better firewalls.
• Phishing protection - Phishing is a type of social engineering that takes many forms., but the most well-known phishing attacks target users through email. AVG Antivirus does a great job of spotting phishing attacks that depend on downloads.
• Real-time protection - Cybercrime prevention relies on real-time response. Even a split-second delay in function could allow a virus or malware to breach a firewall. AVG Antivirus offers excellent real-time functionality through its industry-leading use of AI. It applies machine learning to discover and learn about new threats as it discovers them
• System scanning - The green scan button in the middle of the dashboard performs a basic scan of the most vulnerable parts of the system. The first scan takes a few minutes, but subsequent scans take only about thirty seconds. To do a deep, complete system scan, though, you need to click through the center button three times. Only then do you get the most effective security scan AVG has to offer. It takes longer, but it’s worth it.

????Pricing and plans
AVG Antivirus is free for PC, Mac, or Android. The premium version, AVG Internet Security, costs $ for the first year to protect one Mac or one PC. AVG advertises this as a 43% discount, so expect the renewal price to be closer to $ There are no AVG apps for Ubuntu or other Linux versions. The AVG Internet Security also offers a 10-device plan to protect up to ten PCs, Macs, or Android devices for less than $10 more a year—$, discounted from a regular price of $

????Ease of use and setup
AVG Antivirus is extremely easy to use. The free version downloads with just a few clicks, no account necessary. The AVG Antivirus user interface is extremely simple and intuitive. The front panel features a top-line assessment of your protection and a “Fix All” button to correct all issues covered by your plan.

AVG Antivirus has a reputation for great customer support, and the experience mostly bears that out. A visit to the support page reveals an extensive knowledge base with a search field, a support community, quick links to the download center and license finder, and numerous FAQs. It’s worth noting, however, that 24/7 technical and customer support is only available if you pay for a “premium support” plan with a price tag of $200 per year. It’s fair to say that this could erase the savings and affordability that act as selling points for budget-conscious users.
