With the fall season officially here, the calendar has flipped to my favorite season of them all. The crisp autumn air comes with shorter days that make way for earlier, and seemingly darker nights that are filled with mystery. There’s just something about fall that brings a feeling that you never know what might be lurking in the shadows… especially as Halloween nears, and if superstition is to be believed, the lines between good and evil grow perilously thin. In the virtual world, there can also be unsavory creatures lurking in the depths of our devices, those who slipped through the cracks during visits to the internet that could’ve been better protected. Thankfully, the folks at AVG have a full suite of products available to protect your valuable gear from unseen evil…

AVG Antivirus 2016The reality is that we’re right between two big seasons for tech – Back-to-School and the Holidays, times when kids and families are loading up on all the latest gadgets, often settling on the pre-installed anti-virus and internet security options, many of which don’t have the features needed to ward off potential problems in 2016 and beyond. Whether you’re running PC, Mac or an Android device, AVG offers free antivirus, along with Internet Security (which I just installed on our newest laptop) and more, all of which can be controlled across devices with a single account. In our house, I’m the gatekeeper when it comes to such things, making sure that our whole arsenal of digital goods are kept in top shape. That also means using AVG Tuneup to speed up and clean-up the older ones.

Viruses, spyware, ransomware, rootkits, Trojans, and other nasty malware are out there – and they’re coming at you like a zombie horde… sometimes slow and shambling like the old-school zombies… sometimes fast-moving and crazy like those new-school ones.

Will YOU be protected when the Virtual Goblins and Digital Gremlins come for you? Visit AVG.com to get started with free antivirus, and move up to world-class PRO-level protection as needed. AVG Zen will help you manage your protection across all of your devices… just like me.
