Avira Antivirus Review

By | February 12, 2018


Avira Antivirus is one of the best choices for antivirus protection as it not only protects from the common viruses but also from various malwares including spyware, adware, or any fraudulent software. It is user friendly, has an open & bright interface and its window is half-sized so it does not unnecessarily cover the entire desktop screen.

Avira Free Antivirus can be downloaded separately or as part of the package that includes a VPN, a password manager, an online dashboard and a system optimizer. The offered free VPN is of basic level, but advanced VPN services are also available with Avira Antivirus Pro. The password manager works as a browser extension.

The software is available for Windows Vista, 10, 8, 7, and XP, Mac operating system, Android and iOS devices. It offers a wide range of features, but its file encryption ability stands out among the rest. It guards your data against hackers or anyone who tries to record your credentials. It also has a beneficial Do Not Track feature and anonymizes the collected user data.

Avira Antivirus Software also cleared the recent lab tests with a good score that reflects its reliability. It also provides Software updater to scan your device for any out-of-date drivers, applications and extension. Avira gives 24/7 tech support via telephone and emails and their staff is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

Another invaluable addition is the option to choose whenever you want to run the software during boot process, which is a feature not seen in many other software. The antivirus runs unobtrusively and performs the tasks without interruption during other applications.

Overall, Avast Free Antivirus offers a good malware detection, has a lighter system impact and provides many extra tools without any strings attached. Some features are trial based and can be accessed for comprehensive protection by Avira’s paid software like Internet Security Suite and Avira Antivirus Pro.


Internet Security Suite

Antivirus software provides limited features with the free or trail-based version and to unlock their full potential, paid upgrades like Internet Security Suite are provided. It is a preferable choice as its capability goes way beyond the scope of traditional antivirus software and outperforms the security features as well.

The Internet Security Suite is a package that usually includes an antivirus, a firewall, parental controls and many other useful features designed to extend a 360-degree protection to your device. Avira’s Internet Security Suite offers a firewall manager to optimize your PC’s Firewall setting by leveraging the advanced capabilities of the built-in mediocre Windows Firewall.

The software, on the other hand, offers impeccable two-way protection and has the potential to protect from unauthorized access by the intruders. It secures your surfing and shopping experience. The Ransomware prevents your files to be taken hostage and having to pay for getting those files back. Antispam enables unnecessary email spam prevention. Unlike the free antivirus software, it efficiently detects the phishing websites and protects your identity and online activities.

The user interface is simple and easier to use even for the beginners. System health can be immediately analyzed by using key attributes on the Home window. It has a Browser tracking blocker that stops any third parties from recording your data or other credentials while the harmful links are also highlighted by Website safety adviser before clicking Go.

Thus, the Internet Security Suite secures all the gateways to your PC or other devices maintaining highest level of protection such that no one can spy on you via your webcams etc. Moreover, to minimize the impact on the system after its installation and to optimally improve the performance of your device, Avira’s built-in System Speedup tool works effectively.
