Why pay for an Anti Virus?

Free Antivirus vs. Paid Antivirus explained.



Free antiviruses like Avira and TotalAV are pretty good, but their paid versions are way better — to begin with, they come with all of the internet security protections you need to stay as safe as possible online. And I’m not just talking about anti-malware protection here.

Premium antivirus software for Windows also includes extras like a VPN (to ensure you’re anonymous online), a password manager (to protect your sensitive data, including financial information), and parental controls (to make sure your child is protected on the internet). Together with a malware scanner, these tools are crucial to building a good online defense against hackers, scammers, and predators.

What’s more, paid antiviruses also include better customer support, so you know you can get help removing malware, accessing a feature, or solving any other issue with your antivirus at all times. Free antiviruses, on the other hand, don’t include live chat and phone support, so the only way to get assistance is to read a knowledge base, post a question on a forum, or send a ticket.
