I have a suspicious file on my computer and I want to scan it. How?

If you encounter a suspicious file on your computer, you can send it to us for scanning. There are two ways to send us files:

  1. Upload the file in our Online Portal. It will be scanned and eventually inserted into the detection process:

  2. Send us the file in a password-protected archive to virus_malware@avira.com
    Our experts will check it out.
