Avira Free Antivirus 2017

Avira Free Antivirus represents one of the most popular security solution to date with over 295 million installations worldwide. It provides comprehensive protection against threats of any kind: viruses, worms, backdoors, trojans, rootkits, adware, spyware, phishing, etc.

During the last few years has dominated the top 5 antivirus solutions according to independent tests performed by AV-Test.org, Virus Bulletin and AV-Comparatives.org.

Besides classic signatures detection, it boosts a fantastic heuristic engine to detect unknown malware and it also uses cloud detection technology for faster reaction time in case of a threat.

The latest version includes Avira Online Essentials, the new Web dashboard that puts all your devices on a single place in order to be easily managed.

Two other interesting features included are Browser Tracking Blocker: Prevents others from recording your online habits and Website Safety Advisor: Clear safety ratings for your search results (these features are included in the Avira Browser Safety - a browser extension for Firefox and Chrome).
