AVG anti virus app

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Today’s post I want to share with you guys the cell phone Anti Virus App called AVG.

Devices, data, people… They’re all connected. The Internet has made the jump from our computers, tablets, and phones into our cars, door locks, and even the things we wear.  All of this needs protecting now more than ever. That’s why they work hard to provide security software and services for families and businesses alike.

AVG’s goal is a world in which people can enjoy their lives online without worries. They believe everyone has an inalienable right to security and privacy, and They’re doing their best to provide just that.  They are a security pioneer, offering a wide range of protection, performance and privacy solutions for consumers and businesses. They are now a part of the Avast family of world leading digital security products, dedicated to keeping people around the world safe.

I took a look at the app and got to see how it worked.  The app is very user friendly and easy to use.


They have it’s features broken down into different categories: Protection, Privacy, performance, and anti-theft.

Protection:
✔ Scan apps, games and files with our dual-engine antivirus and remove malicious content
✔ Scan websites for harmful threats. If a suspicious URL is detected, you will be redirected to a “Safe Page” (Android’s default browser and Chrome and OS older than 6.0)
✔ WiFi Scanner, Analyzer and Inspector for network encryption, password strength, Captive Portal (ones that make you ‘sign-in’ before you can use the WiFi) and ARP Poisoning (lets attackers re-direct you to a different URL)

Performance:
✔ Monitor battery consumption and enable power saving
✔ Kill tasks and processes that can slow down your phone
✔ Keep track of your mobile data plan usage
✔ Optimize storage space (internal and SD card)

Anti-Theft:
Use AVG AntiVirus FREE 2017 (Virus Cleaner) for Android for Android phones and tablets together with AVG’s remote management console or text messages (SMS) to:
✔ Locate your lost or stolen phone via Google Maps™
✔ Lock your phone and set a lock screen message to help the locator find you
✔ Make your phone ring (shout) even if it is on silent mode
✔ Wipe your phone and SD card content
✔ Camera Trap [30 day trial]: discreetly emails you a photo of anyone who enters 3 wrong passwords when trying to unlock your phone
✔ Device Lock [30 day trial]: automatically locks your phone whenever the SIM card is replaced

Privacy:
✔ Hide private photos in a password-protected Vault to prevent others from snooping on your memories
✔ App Lock [30 day trial]: lock sensitive apps to protect your privacy and safety or lock your phone settings to secure its configuration
✔ Call and Message Blocker: protect yourself against spammers, hackers and scammers. Get warned about suspicious text messages, filter and block unwanted calls and messages (SMS Blocker isn’t available for devices with Android v4.4 and newer)
✔ Delete call history, clipboard content and browsing history (Chrome)
✔ Wipe contacts, text messages, photos, browser history, calendar, format SD card and restore device to factory settings

This is a good app to have to keep your phone protected. Some features I didn’t even think to use prior to trying this out.
It is free to download so give it a try!
