Avira's mission has always been to protect people in our connected world. However, it's a sad fact that nowadays threats are not just caused by viruses and malware — making protection far more complex.
We've developed Avira Free Security as the successor to Avira Free Antivirus to provide you with a first-class user experience and all-round protection. Compared to the traditional Free Antivirus version, Avira Free Security offers you a much wider range of protection.
Avira Antivirus protection remains at the heart of our new Avira Free Security solution, plus you get these additional features:
- Outdated software is vulnerable to threats. Therefore we recommend that you always keep your software up to date. The software updater feature helps to identify and update outdated software hassle-free.
- Our VPN feature encrypts your web traffic (especially important when connecting to unsecured Wi-Fi hotspots) and blurs your IP address and location, making it tougher for data collectors to identify you. See here for additional information on how a VPN works.
- Identity theft is on the rise, with over 20 billion personal datasets (including clear-text passwords) having been stolen over the past 5 years and made publicly available. Protect yourself with strong and unique passwords. The passwords feature helps you securely manage all your passwords and alerts you if your passwords are weak or your logins get stolen.
- With our optimization features you can also clean up your system and make it run faster and smoother.
