The AVG app doesn’t pull any punches. Right up front it tells you it is supported by advertising, but it can easily be removed by upgrading to AVG AntiVirus PRO. You can choose to upgrade right away for a monthly or annual subscription fee, or continue for free, but with a few ads. The opening screen greets you with a nice big button labeled Scan. Simply press the button and get a full scan of your device. Any risks found will then be listed, including settings that AVG suggests be changed if considered unsecure.
AVG AntiVirus FREE offers protection with an easy to use interface anyone can navigate. The app comes with great additional features like App Lock to set a four digit pin to protect sensitive apps, and Vault for locking up private photos. Scans are not just for threats on your device, but your Wifi connection as well, checking to make sure the connection is really secure. Though the app is free, the features that come with it are above and beyond the basic. I really liked that I could schedule a daily virus scan with the free version, something my old antivirus didn’t offer. With included performance enhancements and anti-theft options, this is more than just an antivirus solution. There are ads included, but they are hardly noticeable, and with the backing of such a renowned company as AVG, you definitely will have peace of mind you are in good hands.
Keep your phone and tablet safe and speedy with AVG AntiVirus Free. The app is available now on Google Play for free. You can find out more about AVG and what they offer on their website here.
