AVG offers an impressive feature set, solid malware protection, and solid performance across a range of tests. The free version is not as robust in features, while the premium version comes with more options such as an optimization tool for devices and VPN.
Its AV Test results are generally good. It detected and protected 100% of malware during the March and April 2022 testing. However its performance in detecting zero-day attacks isn’t as good as some of the other highly-rated products I’ve tried, and it can slow down the system.
The free version comes with web and email security, identity theft monitoring of passwords leaked to the public Photo vaulting, and AVG Cleaner, which helps speed up your device by eliminating unnecessary data. The premium version boosts the security features with ransomware and webcam protection, safer banking and an enhanced firewall. It also comes with a performance tuneup that increases the speed of your PC and extends battery lifespan, and it also includes the option of a VPN to ensure your privacy online.
