Avira Free Security Suite, the most comprehensive security product ever released for free, covers three key aspects of your digital life: the need to stay protected against malware and other threats, the need to anonymously and privately surf the web as you please, and the need to have a speedy computer that runs at top performance.

"At Avira, we build software that empowers users to manage, secure and improve their digital life. With the new Free Security Suite, everyone will get the world class security they expect from us along with the tools they need to protect their identity, their privacy and keep devices running smoothly," said Avira CEO Travis Witteveen.

With the new Free Security Suite, Avira offers protection, privacy and performance. I already mentioned that, didn’t I? I bring it up again because it’s time to take a closer look at these three features.

1. Avira Free Security Suite protects against malware, ransomware, and other threats (via Avira Free Antivirus and Avira Browser Safety)



Avira Free Antivirus, which is part of Avira Free Security Suite, offers comprehensive protection against a variety of threats, including viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkits, spyware and ransomware. It offers real-time protection against malware, it scans unknown files in real-time, it detects new and emerging threats.

Avira Browser Safety, the company’s free browser extension, is also part of Avira Free Security Suite. This extension detects malicious and phishing websites, blocks browser trackers, notifies you about potentially unwanted applications, and it even saves you money by finding online shopping deals.


2. Avira Free Security Suite lets you anonymously and privately surf the web (via Avira Phantom VPN)



With Avira Phantom VPN, you can surf the web anonymously, on an encrypted connection that protects against snoopers and cybercriminals. Furthermore, you can hide your real IP and spoof your real location, meaning you’ll be able to access websites that aren’t available in your country.

Top 3 benefits of using Avira Phantom VPN
  • Privacy protection – block online trackers and prevent the collection of personal data. What you do online is your business and your business alone, so keep your online activities private.
  • Secure & anonymous browsing – surf the web on a connection that encrypts all communications between the internet and your PC or Android. This prevents eavesdroppers from listening in on private communications and stops cybercriminals from capturing your data.
  • Hide your IP and open up the internet – by detecting your IP address, websites can tell where you’re from and they can block you if you’re not from a certain region or country. Avira Phantom VPN hides your real IP, spoofing your location, and thus allowing you to bypass this form of online censorship.
Avira Phantom VPN offers 500MB of traffic per month for free. If you take the time to register for an account, Avira will double the amount of free traffic, giving you 1GB per month. If you still need more, you’ll have to get the paid Avira Phantom Pro, which offers unlimited data for $9.99 per month.

Avira Phantom VPN is part of Avira Free Security Suite. It’s also available as a standalone application for Windows and Android, as well as iOS and Mac.


3. Avira Free Security Suite helps boost your PC’s performance (via Avira System Speedup)



It is a well-known fact that PCs lose performance over time. Knowing very well that no one likes a sluggish PC, Avira bundled its system tune-up tool into the Free Security Suite to help you reclaim some of that lost performance.

Avira System Speedup does lots of things to make your PC run faster and smoother: it finds and removes unnecessary junk files; it detects and fixes Registry errors; it lets you view and manage all the applications that automatically run at startup; it helps you manage your device’s performance and energy usage; it reorganizes fragmented data; it finds duplicate files; and more.

Avira System Speedup is part of Avira Free Security Suite, but it isn’t free. The trial version that comes with the suite lets you run a full system optimization just 1 time.



Avira Free Security Suite also comes with the Avira Connect dashboard that offers information about all of Avira’s products.
