Free third-party antivirus is often a tradeoff. You receive only basic protection—a term that means different things to different companies—as well as semi-regular "encouragement" to upgrade to a paid suite.

AVG AntiVirus Free for Mac offers very basic protection, but isn't too terrible about encouraging upgrades. The suite protects against viruses, secures your desktop email, your web browsing, and that's it. Those are the essentials, however, which go a long way to keeping your computer safe.

AVG's protection is top notch. AV-Test looked at it in December, and it had a 100 percent protection rate from 145 samples. AVG for Windows had the same score from AV-Test's 0-day, web and email threats, as well as the widespread and prevalent malware test.

AV Comparatives' most recent Mac test was in June 2019. AVG for Mac also got 100 percent among 585 Mac samples, and 100 percent against 500 Windows samples in the same test.

In our own spot tests, AVG did fine. It had no trouble blocking web-based threats, as well as a number of malware samples from the Objective See library.

Interface and features

When you first start-up AVG Free for Mac you get a window with four tiles. Two of which are labeled Basic Protection and the other two are Full Protection. The latter are for paid subscribers only and include ransomware protection, phishing protection, and a Wi-Fi inspector for monitoring all the devices on your home network.

Under the basic protection the two tiles are labeled Computer and Web & Email. Computer includes a file shield that automatically scans any new files added to your computer, and then the quarantine shows any detected malicious files. Web protection includes the ability to block web-based attacks and unsafe downloads, and then there's the email shield for desktop email programs that scans for unsafe attachments.

The tiles interface isn't really necessary for just the basic features. When you go into each section all you see are sliders that turn the aforementioned features on or off.
