Avira Internet Security — all-in-one internet protection
The internet is both a blessing and a curse. Today’s interconnected world offers cybercriminals numerous attack vectors and entry points, opportunities, and distribution channels. Whether attacks on vulnerabilities in outdated software, malware spread via email or internet downloads, fraudulent emails and phishing websites, blackmailing ransomware, or malicious ads — the methods, or vectors as they’re known, are becoming more and more sophisticated and the attacks more complex.
Cybercriminals are extremely interested in your valuable personal data. Among other things, they’ll try to get their hands on users’ log-in details for online accounts and other sensitive data through phishing websites or hacker attacks on the databases of large online platforms. If successful, the internet fraudsters can then either access the accounts themselves or offer the stolen data for sale on the dark web.
We don’t need to tell you how dangerous things get if this data concerns log-in details for online banking or payment services such as PayPal. Phishing emails are often sent in the user’s name to redirect the unwary to bogus websites — some of which really are hard to tell apart from the actual ones.
However, there are other ways cybercriminals can get their hands on your sensitive data. A keylogger inserted into your device can capture your keystrokes and in doing so record everything you type — whether that’s usernames and passwords or credit card and bank account numbers.
This makes it all the more important to ensure you strengthen your internet security and arm yourself against online dangers with a comprehensive protection solution like Avira Internet Security.
Strengthen your internet protection with Avira Internet Security
With its enhanced levels of protection, Avira Internet Security helps you protect yourself from a range of online threats and minimize the risk of data theft. Our multi-layered protection against online threats includes advanced antivirus protection, a password manager with additional features, and a software updater for Windows or a cookie cleaner for macOS.
The browser safety extension not only offers protection against malicious ads and phishing websites but also greater protection for your online privacy as you can block tracking of what you do online.
Advanced malware protection for greater online security
Thanks to the various features and tools of Antivirus Pro, Avira Internet Security offers you comprehensive protection on the internet. This allows you to block malware, prevent data theft through phishing attacks, and protect your computer from potentially malicious applications and unauthorized access to your system.
- Real-time security with Protection Cloud
Avira Internet Security’s cloud-based system protection is always active in the background to detect and block malware automatically. You’re notified the moment a file is used, copied, or accessed without your consent. Suspicious files are analyzed in the Avira Protection Cloud and not on your device, so your system resources aren’t sapped.
- Virus scanner
You can either scan your entire system, particularly vulnerable, or chosen areas of your device for malware, plus plan and manage your virus scans. You’ll need to start foreground scans manually — something you should do regularly.
- Advanced ransomware protection
Avira Internet Security’s special ransomware protection also detects previously unknown ransomware mutations. In addition to a signature analysis, it performs a behavioral analysis and scans which actions are triggered by the individual parts of the code. If actions are detected that are typically initiated by ransomware, they are blocked.

- Password check: Find out if you are reusing passwords or if your passwords are easy to guess.
Software updater for automatic protection against security vulnerabilities (Windows tool)
Software updates often contain not only new features and bug fixes but also security patches. As soon as a security hole is discovered in software, the manufacturer fixes it and issues a security update. The faster the affected program is updated, the sooner the vulnerability is fixed and the less time cybercriminals have to exploit it, such as through a zero-day attack.
With Avira Internet Security you can have your software, drivers, and operating system updated automatically, saving you the hassle of having to go hunting around for the latest releases. Software Updater Pro not only updates Windows programs but also those from third parties, fetching the updates directly from the manufacturers’ websites.
Cookie cleaner for greater online privacy (Mac tool)
Websites and advertisers store tracking cookies on your device to recognize you when you visit a website again and to target your interests or show you relevant ads. The cookie cleaner helps you delete these cookies from your Mac, reducing your digital footprint on the internet.
