AVG’s advanced antivirus scans for, removes and flat-out stops viruses, ransomware, spyware, rootkits, Trojans, and other nasty malware — and because it all happens in real time, we can catch threats before they reach you. AVG secures your USB and DVD drives just as quickly, too.
AVG’s favorite bit? It updates your security automatically, and uses advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and real-time analysis to help stop even the newest threats from getting near you.
Web & Email Protection
Your email has never been safer. AVG’s Email Shield technology specifically targets email attachments to stop threats, wherever they may come from — malicious senders or friends sending malware out unknowingly.
Your online security is guaranteed with real-time link & download scanning, and protection against unsecure Wi-Fi spots. If you click it, we scan it — with AVG’s best internet security software, you always know your way is clear.
AVG’s Enhanced Firewall gives you full control over exactly who and what comes in and out of your PC. And it’s Ransomware Protection provides an extra layer of protection against ever-increasing ransomware attacks. That means nobody messes with any of your private data, files, photos, and passwords — no hackers, no ransomware, nothing.
Online Payments Security
Whether browsing, banking, or shopping, this is the added internet protection you need. AVG blocks spam and scams, and even help you avoid fake copycat websites, to prevent you from accidentally giving our passwords or credit card numbers to the bad guys.
Keeps suspicious applications from accessing your webcam, encrypt and hide your most private photos and files, or permanently shred documents you’re done with.
All AVG Internet Security Features
Thoroughly scans every corner of your computer (and any drives connected to it) in real-time for viruses, ransomware, spyware, worms, Trojans, rootkits, and other malware. You can even schedule whole-computer scans for those times you won’t even be at your computer.
Uses advanced artificial intelligence on your computer to proactively identify malware samples that haven’t yet been catalogued by our ThreatLabs team.
Scans for potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) that you may have unknowingly downloaded (e.g., adware and other malicious applications bundled with downloaded software).
Cloud-based technology helps stop even the newest malware variants and outbreaks in real-time. Anytime our antivirus encounters an unknown threat, it uploads it to our ThreatLabs team for analysis. They’ll then send out a cure to all our millions of users via a security update. The end result? Better protection for everyone.
Dramatically shortens scanning times by intelligently skipping files it already knows are safe (i.e., files unchanged since they were last scanned).
Like an alert watchdog, this feature works in real-time to sniff out suspicious behavior of any software running on your computer and warn you if anything is amiss. This helps protect against 0-day threats, malicious programs, and even keyloggers that secretly record typed passwords and bank account details.
Ensures that your security is always up-to-date by pushing virus definitions, bug fixes, security updates, and new features to you as they become available.
Do Not Disturb Mode
Whether you’re gaming, watching movies, or presenting, as long as you’re doing it fullscreen, Do Not Disturb Mode keeps notifications at bay, blocking distracting and potentially embarrassing popups from 3rd-party apps, Windows, and even our own AVG AntiVirus FREE and AVG Internet Security.
Postpones AVG scans, updates, and popups to avoid interrupting you while you’re working, playing games, or watching videos. (Unlike Do Not Disturb Mode, Silent Mode only affects AVG AntiVirus FREE and AVG Internet Security.)
Blocks dangerous email attachments to prevent you from falling victim to fake emails or friends who may have unknowingly forwarded you malware.
Helps you avoid dangerous websites by scanning clicked links for threats and warning you of anything suspicious. This works for any link on the Internet, including those on Facebook® and Twitter®.
Scans downloaded files before they reach your computer to protect you against hidden malware.
Helps you avoid malicious hotspots used by hackers by warning you when you connect to an unsecure Wi-Fi network.
Helps clean up your browser by removing unwanted or potentially dangerous browser toolbars and extensions that may have been installed without your permission.
Effortlessly bounces hackers, criminals, and snoopers who try sneaking onto your PC to steal your private files, photos, & passwords. Works on both wired and wireless networks.
Walls off your personal photos, documents, and files from malicious encryption. And it takes malware protection one step further, by giving you total control over which apps can change or delete your files.
Worried that someone might be spying on you through your webcam? Force untrusted apps to get your permission before using it, or even disable it for good.
Did you know that files deleted from your Recycle Bin can still be recovered? File Shredder securely deletes data to help prevent unintended or unauthorized recovery.
We block spam, scams, and malicious phishing emails to keep your inbox cleaner and help stop you from giving your passwords and credit card numbers to the bad guys.
Fake Website Shield
Helps you avoid fake websites so you don’t unknowingly give criminals your passwords, credit card numbers, and other personal data. We do this by preventing criminals from hijacking your DNS (domain name system) settings by using our own secured DNS servers to faithfully direct you to real websites.
