Which Antivirus software is the “best” We see this question come up often, and the answer may shock you. The truth is, there is no “best” option. No matter which antivirus program you purchase, whether you choose Norton, AVG, or any other brand, they all have the same features for the most part. They are all competitively priced, and they are all designed to help protect you in an online world. We recommend having a PAID subscription, yes free is good, but if something is FREE, it has a reason. It’s worth the investment.
There is a misconception that if you have Antivirus protection, that you can’t get infected. This is a false statement , more and more users are getting infected, and YES Apple computers can get infected. The reality is, that simply having antivirus software is not enough to keep you protected. One of the best things you can do to enhance your protection is to make sure you have all the programs that you need to be installed on your computer. When you start googling things like “download” or “free download” you can get into trouble quickly.
Another tip to enhance your protection is to update your “Virus Database Definitions”, This is a fancy way of saying update your antivirus software regularly. This helps your antivirus software know what to look for when it’s scanning for threats.
