Protect Yourself Online with AVG Antivirus Software
Each day there are billions of people around the globe accessing the Internet from laptop computers, smartphones, and tablets. Banking, shopping, email, and social media interactions conducted online each day expose users to the risk of malicious content controlled by data thieves looking to steal sensitive information.
The 2014 AVG free antivirus software is new and improved, and ready to help protect the sensitive information of web-surfers everywhere. AVG antivirus software offers a comprehensive suite of tools to protect users against malicious content while online. As with previous versions, AVG comes in two versions. There is AVG Antivirus Free and AVG Internet Security.
AVG offers a modern user interface that keeps it simple for users to protect themselves while surfing online. The main screen provides direct links to all areas that users have antivirus coverage in, including the device hard drive, web, identity protection, and email protection. AVG’s two programs (free and Internet Security) offer users different levels of protection.
With the AVG Antivirus Free software program, users have access to three main security features. The first is AVG’s antivirus tools that block viruses, spyware, and other malware from infiltrating files and hard drives. The link protection feature scans links that users come across on the web, Twitter, and Facebook to ensure that malicious content is not waiting on the other end.
The third feature is an exciting new feature from AVG called File Shredder. When users delete files on Windows and empty the recycle bin, there is still a digital trail that could be followed to find those files. File Shredder, available on the free and paid version, securely deletes all files to eliminate those digital trails and make file recovery next to impossible.
Users who upgrade to the full-blown Internet Security software package have access to additional layers of online security, including anti-spam, firewall, and the new Data Safe. The new Data Safe feature allows users to create private folders on a hard drive to store encrypted information within a password protected folder.
The new File Shredder and Data Safe features offer extra layers of security that, while not vital for the average user now, could be essential in the future given the increasing number of security breaches taking place in the world.
At Home and On-the-Go
AVG antivirus software programs are available for PCs and laptops, as well as Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. The mobile security services are provided through dedicated apps that bring many of the same features from the PC versions of the software, with added features such as tracking lost and stolen devices, and remote wipes to clear data.
