How to deactivate / activate Avira Protection Cloud

On the basis of integrated rules, your Avira product autonomously decides whether one or more events on your system are attributable to a virus or malware attack. These rules are created in the Avira virus laboratory from the analysis of viruses and malware and made available to all Avira customers.

You can participate in the improvement of these rules and with it in the worldwide battle that Avira is waging against viruses and malware by using the expanded online test and joining the Avira Protection Cloud community.
