MUNICH, April 23, 2020 – Avira, Germany’s leading antivirus and VPN provider, has launched Avira Free Security: comprehensive, industrial-grade cyber security free for desktop and mobile. With Avira Free Security, users take the guess work out of understanding which tools they need. Via Smart Scan, the powerful one-click feature, Avira Free Security detects and resolves infamous security, privacy and performance issues. At zero cost, users now have one integrated app with 15+ tools to:

·       Protect from scams, identity theft and financial loss

·       Secure online and mobile activities with free VPN

·       Speed up and clean PCs and mobiles for peak productivity

“In a time when much of the world is migrating their livelihood online, Avira Free Security provides industrial-grade cyber security with one easy click on your personal device. We created a product that’s simple and intuitive, so no one needs to miss out on protecting their digital lives,” said Matthias Ollig, Chief Technology Officer of Avira. “We are living in an era where people are constantly exposed to malicious online activity, with an average 8.4 million daily malware attacks and 8.1 million phishing scams. With our new Free Security products, everyone around the world – including the less tech-savvy consumer – can make sure they are fully protected.”

Avira Free Security is a spinoff of the company’s Free Security Suite. The product is currently released for Windows, Android and iOS; a version for Mac users will be released in Summer 2020.

A New Era in Antivirus

In 2020, online security goes beyond the traditional antivirus software or app. Today, device security must go hand-in-hand with performance and privacy enhancements. Furthermore, users demand convenient, intuitive and powerful solutions that won’t disrupt their workflow.

To use Avira Free Security, users simply click on the download button and run through a guided install process. After the download completes, an easy-to-use dashboard appears, prompting users to start their Smart Scan. Through this simple click, the program scans the device for security and privacy threats and cleans up the computer for improved speed and performance. Based on consumer tests by AV Comparatives, an independent organization which offers systematic testing to check whether security software lives up to its promises,  Avira’s detection engine blocks 100% of all digital threat.

Users can access Avira Free Security at any time, toggle between the different protection tabs and see what the program is blocking.

Free Security for Mobile

Avira Free Security for Windows is also available on-the-go for Android and iOS. With the mobile versions, users enjoy a simple interface on-the-go, all managed by the same Smart Scan feature available in the desktop version. Additionally, functionality such as device optimization, VPN, anti-theft, network scanner and privacy managers are available for mobile users.

“Protecting yourself online should not be a luxury but rather a right that everyone can take into their own hands,” said Ollig. “With Avira Free Security, people are now better equipped to protect their digital lives and can enjoy the beauty of technology without worry.”
