How to install AVG Internet Security

Installing AVG Internet Security. Step by Step Review

So you want to install AVG Internet Security and you want to know what to do, how long it takes and whether it is any good at internet security and online protection.

AVG Internet Security Best Bits

  • Great Value
  • Up to 256 devices allowed (the highest no. in the industry)
  • Ideal for protecting Android Phone, Windows PC & Laptops
  • Very good online support service esp. webchat
  • Very easy to set up

AVG Internet Security Cons

  • No iOS version for iPhone
  • Not strong on parental control

*Always ask if we have any special offers running.

BeSecureOnline Recommendations

AVG Internet Security offers you great value at one price for 256 devices - from one of the best known online protection providers in the world.

Almost nobody else does this as most vendors charge more when you want to cover additional devices - this product is ideal for someone who wants to protect their family and business for one great price.

The only drawbacks are the lack of iOS version (which only matters if you have an iPhone) and a strong parental control version. 

Otherwise, additional great options for people to consider are the slightly more upscale AVG Ultimate and AVG Secure VPN

Start installation on Desktop/Laptop

For phone installation simply go the Android Store and request the AVG Internet Security download and activate using the key provided in the email sent to your by us. We suggest that you start with installation on a desktop or laptop for convenience.

*AVG Internet Security does not include the Password Manager option and Tune-up which are included in AVG Ultimate.  

Click on the setup option to get going, then the AVG Anti Virus will start loading and return the screen below.  AVG Internet Security then tells you that the Browser is secured and that it has started installing Virus, Malware protection, documents and performance. This process lasts a couple of minutes. The below are screenshots from a Windows 10 HP laptop.

Hopefully, the next screen you see will say exactly this. At this stage you have not entered the license key as you are still installing AVG Online Protection Internet Security.

The remaining 3 steps will take about 5 minutes as AVG Internet Security runs through the Anti Virus online protection setup.

The AVG house look is black and green. This anti-virus programme from AVG also has a very good file and document shredder that is very easy to use.

AVG Internet Security will install much quicker on a brand new machine. We recommend AVG Ultimate for those wanting added features such as Tune Up and AVG Cleaner.

The installation process points out there are some issues that AVG TuneUp could sort out.  TuneUp is not included with AVG Internet Security, this might be a moment to consider getting AVG Ultimate instead. We’ve tested the performance improvement and it is certainly worth considering.

The battery performance is also something to consider.
