What is the difference between Avira Antivirus Premium and Avira Internet Security?

Avira Internet Security contains all features of Avira Antivirus Premium, plus a Spam filter, the Avira FireWall, AntiBot and the Backup feature. For more details, please refer to the product description on our website.

Starting with the Avira product version 2013 release, Avira Internet Security has renamed the feature Child Protection to Safe Browsing. With this feature, you can still protect your children from improper web contents.

To activate Safe Browsing, click on the switch in the main menu. Alternatively you can open the menu Extras → Configuration → Child Protection → Safe Browsing → Enable Safe Browsing and assign a Role to the User you want to protect.

Child Protection configuration

There are three predefined roles: Child, Young person, Adult. Each of them has a set of rules, which you can adjust as needed (only in Expert mode).

Child Protection - role configuration
