Why AVG LinkScanner for Mac OS X?

AVG leads the way in protecting you from ever-increasing online threats.

* Checks each web page in real time before it opens on your computer
* Automatically updates whenever a new threat is discovered
* It’s quick and easy to install, won’t get in your way, and it’s FREE!

- One trick online criminals use to lure victims to rogue sites is taking advantage of a popular news story and using search engine optimization techniques to rank the results of their poisoned pages higher in search results.
- They hunt and prey on poorly defended websites and upload plenty of materials relevant to the particular news story.
- The example below seems quite inoffensive at first glance. The truth, however, is that the last three links listed lead to malicious pages that will try to sabotage your system.
- Online criminals employ these exact same techniques two to three times a week - every time there’s a major news story in fact.

This is where AVG LinkScanner® comes in. It scans the pages behind the link you’re interested in to see if it leads to a genuine site. If it detects something suspicious, it simply prevents you from visiting the page.

The Right Choice:

* It's the only product that scans every web page just before you get there in real time, so it can identify short-lived threats.
* It doesn't rely solely on a blacklist of bad sites that can quickly go out of date.
* It can't be identified by poisoned websites, so they can't take evasive action.
* It doesn't rely on opinion - it looks at what's really on the web page.
* It's quick and easy to install.
* It works unobtrusively in the background and doesn't slow your PC down.
* It works smoothly alongside other major brands of security software.
* It's completely free.

AVG is easy on you

You might be asking whether all these great things will slow down your PC and prevent you from doing all the fun things you normally do. The answer is NO.
