AVG LinkScanner®

Only AVG LinkScanner® technology stops web threats in real-time

As the nature of threats evolve, so must the nature of protection. As we move from an age of adolescent computer virus writers to an age of highly organised criminals devising ways to steal your identity, credit card information or banking details — all for financial gain, it is more important than ever to stop these things before they happen. Today, all you have to do is open a web site or click on a web link to become infected or compromised.

The AVG LinkScanner® technology ensures your safety while you surf the net, download music, documents and pictures, send emails or instant message by scanning documents, files, web pages and web links before you open them. Unlike other security products, our unique software stops the threat before it reaches your hard drive and becomes a problem.
