Review

Avira Free Antivirus is a useful virus protection software, which will protect your computer from spyware, rootkits, worms, phishing, hoaxes, malware, general vulnerabilities, and will also detect malicious files. The features of this freeware have been focused on website verification, tracker blocking and coverage for social networks.

This software includes a toolbar to ensure daily safe browsing, eliminating annoying pop-up windows and adware. This tool now includes a website reputation advisor, social network protection and CallingID technology. Avira Free Antivirus simplifies your work by checking if everything is correct whilst you’re surfing the internet. The most recent feature of the toolbar is the ‘Expert Market’ feature, which is exclusively accessible to request tech support easily.

The file protection engine is constantly and automatically updating itself every 6 hours, making it a very current utility. Besides, this freeware can be combined with a smartphone app which provides anti-theft and device tracking options. However, we don’t recommend it because it doesn’t have a security engine, which means that it won’t protect you against malware. In conclusion, Avira Free Antivirus is a must-have security suite which offers a great range of options, more than other, similar antivirus software such as BitDefender, Antivir or Kaspersky.

How to use this software

Avira Free Antivirus offers you several possibilities and options for keeping your computer protected. Once you run it for the first time, you will see that there are lots of options in the main interface.

Inside the ‘System Scanner’ option you will see several secondary possibilities such as scanning specific files or including additional settings. In that way you will know if your system has vulnerabilities, suspicious files, rootkits, worms, hoaxes, phishers, malware, spyware or any kind of virus. Avira Free Antivirus has an internet-updated, detailed virus database, to respond to the fact that hackers are constantly trying to improve and create new techniques to attack our computers. The right-hand column is specialized in Internet protection, so you will have options such as activating your firewall, web and mail protection, safe browsing or even game mode.
