What is Avira?

"Avira is a freemium full security package that not only blocks malware, but anonymizes browsing and wipes all online traces."

Avira is an antivirus engine that detects and blocks malware in real time, without system lags and other nonsense antivirus security. The product comes in free, prime, home, business, and mobile packages; with excellent customer support, documentation database, and affiliate programs.

Although antivirus protection is the main purpose of this tool, it offers many other functions like a software updater, password manager, VPN, system analyzer, ransomware protection, and antiphishing tools, as well as a gamer mode that automatically starts when games are played online. It examines USB drives and incoming email, so threats are checked regardless of their origin. Avira takes care that the software installed has the latest version because outdated programs are one of the most frequent virus gateways.

There is also the speedup feature, that identifies junk and registry flaws, which implements a power-saving mode and shredding files, making the computer run faster. Other features include the password manager, phantom VPN, applock, and more.

Avira scored 90/100 in the Cyber & Data Security category. This is based on user satisfaction (88/100), press buzz (58/100), recent user trends (falling), and other relevant information on Avira gathered from around the web.
