Shop and bank with confidence AVG Identity Protection™ and AVG Firewall (enhanced for AVG 2016)

Provides additional layers of security, keeping your private information safe at all times.

AVG’s Firewall protects you from malicious attacks by examining communications on each network port. It recognizes all attempts to invade your system and blocks them immediately, keeping both you and your private information safe.

AVG Identity Protection™ is the outer layer of security, keeping your personal information safe by shielding your passwords, credit card numbers, and other digital valuables from prying eyes. AVG Identity Protection uses the latest behavioural technologies to identify software that behaves strangely and stop it before it can do any damage.
Keep tough threats out AVG Anti-Virus, AVG Anti-Spyware, AVG Protective Cloud Technology and AVG Community Protection Network

AVG’s core layers of protection make sure you can’t receive or unintentionally spread even the toughest threats.

AVG Cloud Technology, new for 2016, constantly carries out tests ‘in the cloud’ over the internet to identify the latest emerging threats. Once we have identified threats we develop solutions and then update AVG on your computer in near real-time.

AVG Community Protection Network is new for 2016 and is like an online neighborhood watch, helping everyone in the online community to protect each other. Information about the latest threats is collected from customers who choose to participate in the product improvement program and shared with the community to make sure everyone receives the best possible protection.

AVG Anti-Spyware protects you from spyware and adware – the same kind of malware that is often very difficult to remove, which is why we prevent it from getting to you in the first place.
Block spammers and scammers AVG Anti-Spam

Marks all unwanted emails as spam, protecting you from online scams and keeping your inbox clutter free.

AVG Antispam checks all incoming email messages and marks unwanted emails as spam, protecting you from online scams. AVG 2016 now supports Microsoft Outlook 2010, which includes a spam toolbar to help you keep your inbox clutter free.
Download, share files and chat safely AVG Online Shield™

Download and share files without risk of infection. You are also protected when you exchange files through online chat.

AVG Online Shield™ allows you to download, share and exchange files without risk of virus infection by checking files against both AVG’s scanning engine and LinkScanner technologies. You are also protected when you exchange files using ICQ, MSN and Yahoo! Instant Messenger.
Stay protected on social networks AVG Social Networking Protection

Automatically checks links exchanged on Facebook and MySpace in real time so that you and your friends stay safe. NEW!

AVG Social Networking Protection is new for AVG 2016 and is unique to AVG. Links that are exchanged within Facebook and MySpace are automatically checked in real time so that you and your friends are safe. AVG Social Networking Protection will activate as soon as you install AVG - there’s no need to bother with account or application settings.

Scan smarter and faster AVG Smart Scanning works while you play

AVG 2016’s scans are 3 times faster than previous versions. AVG Smart Scanning works while you’re away and runs in low-priority mode when you return.

AVG Smart Scanning makes sure you can work and play without being interrupted. It starts scanning in high-priority mode whenever you leave your PC and switches to low-priority mode, using minimal resources, every time you move your mouse or push a key on your keyboard. Scans are now much faster as well because AVG Smart Scanning doesn’t waste time scanning the trusted files it knows are safe.
