How does Avira Free Security for Windows work?

Avira Free Security for Windows functions by utilizing cutting-edge cloud technology to provide fast and reliable real-time scanning and data protection. When encountering new and unknown files, their unique identifiers are automatically uploaded to Avira's cloud, where they are analyzed in real-time.

This proactive approach safeguards users from Zero-Day Attacks, which involve cybercriminals utilizing new techniques to infiltrate systems. Avira's Protection Cloud is capable of detecting these never-before-seen attacks, ensuring immediate protection for users.

Here are some key features of Avira Free Security:

NightVision: This intelligent learning system protects users and their devices from emerging and evolving threats.

PUA Shield: It detects potentially unwanted software hidden within legitimate programs, ensuring a cleaner and safer system.

Web Protection: It blocks access to dangerous websites and actively prevents malicious and phishing URLs within websites, social networks, and emails.

Firewall Manager: Your Windows Firewall plays a crucial role in system protection. Avira's Firewall Manager optimizes your firewall settings with a single click.

Email Protection (available in the Pro version): Emails are a common vector for malware distribution. Avira's Email Protection scans emails for dangerous links or attachments, providing an additional layer of security.
