- Rated 1 out of 5by Andal, 3 months agoThis addon has become dishonestly politicized. It blocks the social media ".win" network falsely claiming the entire thing as a "Phishing site". The same rationale behind this could be applied to facebook, reddit, twitter or any other social media site since anyone can ( and regularly does ) post phishing links on those sites as well. Shame on you AVG for this blatantly political nonsense. Your job is to protect people from online security risks, not to tell people what to think. 1-star for obvious political bias. Uninstalled and will be deactivating all my purchases to AVG.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Broffrey, 8 months agoAvoid this kind of useless AntiVirus extensions that in facts can spy what you are looking on the internet, it's just collecting informations on you to profile you and similar customers to finally target ads/products/services. That's desguished spyware in counterpart to provide you a pretended nice service for free.
And just about the service provided: this kind of extensions (lots of similar exist like this one) can modify the webpages on-the-fly and also can censure some parts or search results to guide you to buy to a specific shop/information site/etc... instead of a concurrent. And guess who is paying the extension editor to do that? Sellers? Governments? ...?
Mind again before adding browser extensions!

- Rated 1 out of 5by Bill Merlin Palmer, 9 months agoThis software is effective at preventing "invasions", but it slows down my online activities to a crawl. In some cases, I can barely access anything that I need for business, because AVG filters everything so minutely.
- Rated 1 out of 5by RuggBian, 2 years agoE' uno schifo: dopo aver acquistato la protezione da un virus è ricomparso alle 17:36 ed anche ora, mentre scrivo, sono le 17:38 ; ho foto dell'attacco successivo al pagamento effettuato con carta di credito alle 16:36. Il virus si chiama " livesport27.host". LASCIATE STARE !!!!!!
- Rated 1 out of 5by Jim Van Loan, 2 years agoI installed AVG because is was recommended to remove SearchesCentral from my PC, after installing it a scan was completed that I guessed would identify and remove that problem but it didn't see it which makes be believe it didn't do what was claimed to be a solution.
- Rated 1 out of 5by michael242, 2 years agoI've been a very loyal user of Mozilla Firefox forever. No more. Today, no matter what website I tried to go to I was instead redirected immediatley to:
I (like most) do not even use AVG at all. It's garbage, and as everybody knows and essentially spyware. The constant popup windows from AVG and it's constant need to force/push it's own updates (and if you snoop it, you can see it constantly sends data backs to Avast's servers even though you try to prevent it in-app), renders it simply spyware posing as "security" software. Avast has been proven to spy on those that use AVG and even sell their web brownsing data. There is currently a case file open on them from the FBI. I personally know a high ranking federal prosecutor, and have also filed a formal complaint against both Avast, and sadly now, Mozilla, for allowing this constant redirect to download and addon from AVG.
Obnoxious, Mozilla and Avast. You deserve what you get for doing this.
