AVG Antivirus is a highly sophisticated security suite for Macintosh, developed by AVG. Protect your digital identity both online and offline: keep your hard drive files safe and surf the web, check emails, shop online and browse social networking sites without concern for your safety. The program is available to download as a trial version only. The full version is available for purchase on their official website.

Stay Protected

It's no exaggeration that most of us will use our computers for the most elementary of tasks. Browsing the web, emailing one another, sending and receiving files, online banking and shopping and so many more activities indelibly attach us to the digital world, to the extent that we often lose track of our online identities and where our personal information is being stored. For this reason, it's important to have a means of protecting ourselves from what we cannot effectively track. Even when we are offline, our files may already have been infected and need only be opened to begin the spread of malicious files. AVG Antivirus for Mac is the answer to all of this, providing an outstanding level of protection on multiple fronts to ensure the safety and security of your online identity and your files. 

Fast Scanning, High Performance

AVG Antivirus for Mac has been designed entirely with Mac users in mind, offering an easy to use interface for managing scanning and protection options. One of the biggest complaints people have about antivirus programs is that to conduct a full scan often takes several hours - not with AVG Antivirus. AVG will automatically scan every file you open, whether you're online or offline. This 'Resident Shield' feature proceeds without interrupting your ongoing activities, so you won't even notice it's there. Most importantly, whether you're scanning a single file or your entire hard drive, your machine's performance won't be affected. Since only one file is being scanned at a time, scanning speeds are also fast and efficient the whole time. The scanner even has a handy drag-and-drop mechanic for scanning individual files. 

Conducting a scan will detect, remove, or prevent the spread of viruses, worms, trojans, malware, spyware, rootkits, and more. AVG is renowned for having unparalleled scanning power as well as a highly detailed virus classification system. Regular updates from the AVG virus database will get sent to you automatically so you'll never have to worry about a scan missing something important

Regular updates from the AVG virus database will get sent to you automatically so you'll never have to worry about a scan missing something important. 

Although a lot of dangerous programs you download will be in DMG or Mac-compatible formats, AVG recognizes that files will inevitably come from other sources. As such, it provides triple protection for Mac-specific, PC-specific and mobile-specific viruses, in case any one device tries to act as a carrier. This is a particularly handy feature since it will not only protect your own machine, but any of your friends' machines that are PCs or smart devices. 

The Verdict

Despite its barebones, basic design, AVG Antivirus offers complete protection for your Macintosh and other connected devices. Its simple interface will enable you to conduct scans and manage your protection settings easily and regular updates will ensure that your scans are as effective as possible. The one downside of the program is that it is a bit lacking in features compared with other AVG programs, but if you're looking for an easy-to-use, accessible option for your antivirus protection, then AVG Antivirus is definitely the way to go. Download it now and see for yourself.
