AVG Protects Devices, Data and People

AVG LogoAs the online war with the bad guys escalates, the target is moving away from the devices to the people who own them. Jamie and Daniel look at this tactical shift with AVG‘s Todd Simpson.

AVG’s goal is to protect devices, data and people with a portfolio of products, from anti-virus to VPNs, parental controls to reputation protection. As more and more services come online, people are becoming more aware of the risks and securing their activities. Protecting people is a much harder problem, especially with the rise of the Internet of Things and many connected devices in every home. Things that used to be physical security, such as a door lock, become digital security problems once it’s a connected door lock that can be operated by a smartphone.

AVG’s cross-platform software is available direct from AVG and from the various app stores.

Jamie Davis is the host of Health Tech Weekly at HTWeekly.com. He is a nurse, paramedic and health journalist. Daniel J Lewis dares you to get started in podcasting with The Audacity to Podcast.

AVG Family Safety: Protecting Your Facebook, LindIn, Google+ Networks


AVG disrupted the anti-virus market years ago. But now we’re moving from desktops and laptops to tablets and smartphones. AVG has been changing their models to make the desktop last longer. But AVG is also getting into your social networks with the Family version.

AVG wants your family to be secure online. This app will allow you to suggest settings to your children and if they implemented. You can even control settings if needed.

The dashboard will have a green-amber-red light that will change when you need to be aware of something. If you have already reviewed the setting and decide not to take it, the light will turn green.

AVG also has a “Wifi – Do not Track” option, where you can block some of the data that companies collect when you don’t know it (where you walk in a store, where you stop and spend time, etc).

This software covers Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn. AVG will also give you an idea of what you are worth to these social networks.
