4 Best Free Antivirus Apps For PC and Android

In 2012, Yahoo and Norton teamed up to make a film called Cybergeddon. This film shows how dangerous a computer virus named 3F8S can destroy an entire infected system. From this film it can be concluded that computer viruses are indeed one of the most disturbing things both in the world of education and in work. Many losses have been caused by this computer virus, ranging from data loss, data damage, system disturbances, and so on. Currently, viruses do not only attack PCs or laptops, but also attack mobile or mobile devices such as Android or iOS. Of course, Android devices are more prone to viruses than iOS because in general, virus makers will target the operating system that is more widely used by the community.

Here are 4 free anti-virus that can be used for PC Windows, Mac, or Android.

1. Avast

Avast offers antivirus for PC, Mac, Android, and iOS. Its features that are available on all platforms are Avast SecureLine VPN and Passwords. For now Avast SecureLine VPN is still paid but provides a free trial for those who want to try it for free. Of course, with this VPN service, all websites that we open will go through the Avast network, so Avast can block malicious websites automatically. On the other hand, the passwords feature is used to store the passwords that we use, especially when logging in to a website, so that our passwords are more secure by Avast. For a free antivirus, Avast is a very good antivirus product because it not only blocks viruses but also malware, ransomware, and other threats.
