Be Safe, Guard Your Online Privacy with AVG Web TuneUp

AVG Technologies (News - Alert) has been doing a very good job of providing Internet security to more than 172 million users around the world; it has never stopped refining its products while developing new ones. Its latest endeavor, AVG Web TuneUp, is an attempt to make Web users feel just a little more secure.

Available with AVG’s range of free online security products, AVG Web TuneUp not only protects users while browsing, but it cleans browsing tracks as well and thus allows them to protect their online privacy. It works tirelessly and quietly in the background and doesn’t interfere with user activity.

The World Wide Web is addictive; and almost everyone is guilty of actively surfing the Web sometime during the day (or night). We do know the consequences of random surfing, but can we resist?  AVG Web TuneUp switches on its ‘site safety feature,’ when we surf, checks every page that we visit to ensure that the user and the PC remain protected.

"The Web today is filled with websites that contain hidden threats or cookies that track your online activity," said Andrew Reid, general manager, platform, AVG Technologies.

Users can breathe a little more easily when they visit unknown sites as this free browser add-on detects harmful or invasive websites and issues an alert. What’s more, its browser cleaning capability removes all traces of online activity, making users less vulnerable to outside cyber threats.  In addition, the ‘Do Not Track’ feature informs users when websites collect data about their online activities and gives them the option to block such tracking. All this augurs a good and safe Internet experience.

"Speed and ease of use enable you to reach your online destination more quickly with the knowledge that your digital safety will not be compromised," concluded Reid.

As of now, AVG Web TuneUp is available in English for Chrome and Firefox browsers.
