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.”
